Now It Is A Best of Three

Boston Bruins @ Chicago Blackhawks – Saturday Game 5 (Series tied 2-2)

The first two periods of game four in the Stanley Cup finals looked a lot like the last two periods of game one. As the betting sites recap the box scoring from game four, the Chicago Blackhawks exploded for four goals in the first two periods of that game to push the game into overtime. In game one, the Blackhawks exploded for two goals in the last period and a half of the game to force that game into overtime. Now that the series is tied, the Stanley Cup is literally up for grabs.

When the online sports betting experts previewed this Stanley Cup final, they saw the Bruins’ aggressive play as a positive thing for Boston. In games one and four, Boston’s desire to play the body is what cost the Bruins the wins. When Boston overcommits to hitting the Blackhawks, that puts the Bruins out of position. That is what happened in game one and it happened again in game four. The Bruins will have to work hard to fight their natural tendencies and avoid putting themselves out of position in game five as well.

Why the Bruins Will Win

The Boston Bruins have shown that they can take over the tempo of a game when they stay focused on scoring goals and not on hitting opposing players. Boston is a collection of very talented players who can take the body and score goals as well. The thing that the Bruins will need to be careful of is making sure that goaltender Tuukka Rask is not distracted by his play in game four. Rask is the key to Boston’s chances of winning the Cup and the team needs its goalie to stay focused.

Why the Blackhawks Will Win

The sportsbook experts have not really taken home ice into account throughout this series and that will probably not change for game five. The Blackhawks know that they are in for a battle regardless as to where the game is played, but Chicago has also figured how to get the Bruins off their game and that is valuable information. Chicago goalie Corey Crawford is rapidly developing into the franchise goaltender the Blackhawks had hoped that he would become and he is a huge component to the Blackhawks winning game five and winning the Stanley Cup.

The Bottom Line

Game five will be a battle that will consist of everything the two teams have learned about each other to this point. If Chicago can get Boston off its game again, then this could be a long night for the Bruins. But if the Boston Bruins come out focused on winning this game, then the Chicago Blackhawks will have to find ways around the hard-hitting defensive style that the Bruins have become experts in. The other problem for Chicago is whether or not Tuukka Rask has his head in the game right away. If he does, it is a long night for Chicago.

Pick: Boston Bruins
