2 units on Boston -130 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 3.54) RESULT: LOSS
Boston faces elimination after losing 5-4 in Game 5 on Monday night. The Bruins were down 5-2 and made a strong effort but their bid for a comeback fell short. New York scored on three of four power plays and Boston coach Bruce Cassidy claimed the officials were favoring the Islanders. Tuukka Rask had a bad night and was pulled in favor of rookie Jeremy Swayman, but Rask still is 21-6-4 with a 2.25 goals-against average and has plenty of postseason experience. The Bruins are 38-18 their past 56 games playing with one day of rest, and 19-7 versus an opponent that scored at least five goals its previous game. The Islanders have lost four of their last five against a team that allowed five or more goals its previous game. Boston is favored on the road for a reason and they won't go away quietly. Play the Bruins as a Max Play today.
