The Boston Bruins (27-17-5) and Winnipeg Jets (31-15-2) meet at TD Garden on Tuesday evening.
The Flyers were last in NHL action the Sunday before last, when they lost 3-2 on home-ice to the New York Rangers for what was their fourth defeat in six games.
The Bruins are currently averaging 2.90 Goals per Game, which leaves them 17th in the overall NHL standings. Defensively they are currently allowing 2.61 Goals per Game, which places them in tied 3rd position overall in the rankings.
On an individual basis, David Pastrnak currently has 27 goals for the Bruins this season, while Brad Marchand has 34 assists at present.
The Winnipeg Jets were in action on Monday evening at the Philadelphia Flyers, with their last game prior to that being a 4-2 loss at the Dallas Stars just over a week earlier. That defeat ended a four game winning run.
The Jets are currently averaging 3.46 Goals per Game, which leaves them 6th in the overall NHL standings. Defensively they are allowing 2.77 Goals per Game, which also puts them 6th overall at present.
On an individual basis, Mark Scheifele has scored 25 goals, while Blake Wheeler has registered 52 assists to date.
The Bruins current form isn’t great, but after more than a week’s rest and with the Jets in action the previous evening, they could make home-ice advantage tell in this game. The Jets can never be written off, but our predictions for this game edge towards the Bruins to win here on the Money Line odds.
Pick: Money Line – Boston Bruins @ -143 (888sport)
