(NHL) Boston vs. NY Islanders, 06/09/2021 7:30 PM, Score: 2 - 6
Money Line: -135.00 Boston (Away)
Result: Loss
This is a 10* on BOSTON

The Islanders, thanks to two straight high scoring performances, have taken the lead in this series and are one more win away from advancing to the NHL’s version of the “Final Four.” But what you need to understand about the Game 5 result in Boston is that the Bruins had a colossal 44-19 edge in shots. That they lost 5-4 is shocking. Losing while getting 25 or more shots on goal is something that has happened only four times to the Bruins in the playoffs since 1960. It was only the second time NY won a playoff game when getting outshot by that man. The Islanders also got three power play goals in the win. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy was highly critical of the way the game was called, so that’s something to keep an eye on here in Game 6. Boston has scored first in four of the five games in the series, yet lost three of them. Tuukka Rask is expected to be fine for Game 6 and should play better between the pipes. The Islanders are a good home team, but we like Boston in this one. Play on BOSTON
