(NHL) Vegas vs. Boston, 12/05/2022 7:00 PM, Score: 4 - 3
Money Line: -178.00 Boston (Home)
Result: Loss
Vegas is in first place in the Pacific Division, and have an enviable road record, but I am not convinced of their "worthiness" this year. They are barely over .500 in their last 10 games, losing to the Canucks and Kraken in their last five games. Meanwhile the Bruins, who are full marks for their first place position, are 9-1 L10, and have yet to lose at home. Boston has played the Avs, Canes and Lightning in their last three games and allowed just 4 goals. This is not so surprising, considering they are first in goals-against, as well as tops in goals-scored. They are also 2nd in PP, while facing a Knights team that is 24th ranked in the PK. Rookie net minder Thompson should play for the Golden Knights tonight. He has been very solid, if a bit uneven this season. Not so Ullmark, Boston's goalie, who has been sharp and consistent all season.

Look for the Big Bad Bruins, who are also the healthier of the teams, to extend their home win streak. Boston to win outright.
