Boston Bruins vs Florida Panthers predictions and betting tips
In the last game, the Boston Bruins confidently beat the Montreal Canadiens. They played well, but the Canadiens were not strong rivals. The Panthers lost a match against the Tampa Bay Lightning. They played well, but conceded a lot of goals and were not able to come back. They had a streak of 12 victories before that match. The Boston Bruins have won three of the last four H2H matches with two overtimes. I believe that we will see a draw in this game, because both teams do not look sure winners in this game.
