Florida Panthers vs. Boston Bruins Game 6 Betting Preview

The NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs have been fun to follow all month long, and there is a huge matchup coming on Friday night. Game 6 of the series between the Florida Panthers and Boston Bruins will be taking place, and this game has huge implications. 

Florida comes into this game with a 3-2 series lead, but they missed out on a chance to close out the series on their home ice. The Panthers are still a big favorite to win this series, but getting the job done on the road won’t be easy. 

Boston comes into this game with momentum after keeping their season alive with a big win in Game 5 of the series. The Bruins have not had a ton of recent postseason success, but they will have a huge home crowd behind them. 

The moneyline odds in this game have the Florida Panthers at -150, with the Boston Bruins having odds at +130. 

Panthers Want to Push Tempo

Florida is a team that averaged 3.23 goals per game during the regular season, and they have scored six goals twice in this series. The Panthers convert on the power play nearly 25 percent of the time, and there are weapons all over the ice. 

Aleksander Barkov is leading the way with 13 points so far in the playoffs, and he will be looking for even more production in this game. Florida is a tough team to stop once they get rolling and they can generate an attack quickly.

The Panthers have also proven that they can get stops and win at a slow pace, and that will give them a couple of options to attack this game. 

Boston Must Find Offense

The Boston Bruins scored five goals in the series opener against Florida, but it has been hard to score since that point. Even in the Game 5 win earlier in the week, Boston was only able to find a way to score two goals to win. 

Jake DeBrusk is leading the attack for the Bruins in the playoffs as he has five goals and 10 total points. Some of the other stars for the Bruins have been struggling on offense, and that has to change. 

The Bruins will look to be physical on home ice in this Game 6 showdown, and they will be looking to deliver some huge hits along the way. 

Florida Moves On

The Boston Bruins were able to keep their season alive with an impressive win in Game 5, but that’s about all to expect out of them. Boston just hasn’t been able to find much offense in this series, and that trend will continue on Friday night. 

Florida has been one of the best teams in the NHL all season long, and they have proven that they can win many different styles of games. The Panthers are going to find some early offense in this game, and that will put pressure on Boston to step up.

Taking the Panthers at -1.5 on the puck line is the best bet to make on Friday night as they will pick up a comfortable win.
