Boston Bruins vs. New York Rangers: will the hosts interrupt a streak of failures?
Boston vs. Rangers: NHL match prediction (March 12, 2021)
"Boston" was defeated in two matches in a row so on March 12 they will try to sort things out with the "Rangers". We have prepared a forecast for this match.
"Boston" is still one of the leaders of the Eastern Division, but they are already five points behind the first position. The team has been showing not the best results lately and often loses. Recall that in the last six matches, they celebrated victory only once.
So, after a major victory over "Washington" (5:1), the "Bruins" lost 0:1 away to "New Jersey", and then could not succeed against the "Islanders" – (1:2). At the same time, in the two previous games, Bruce Cassidy's wards did not manage to break the opponent's defense more than once. Perhaps they will be able to rehabilitate in the home arena because they practically do not lose at home in regular time.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
The "Rangers" are in the sixth position in the standings and have scored 23 points so far. The team has chances of making it to the playoffs this season, but the chances are small, as the level of competition is very high. The "Rangers" as a rule play-in series. After three victories in a row, they suffered two failures.
Note that they lost twice to "Pittsburgh" away with a score of 1:5 and 2:4, respectively, and conceded a total of nine goals. But more recently it became known that Artemi Panarin returned to the club, so it will be much easier for David Quinn's squad to play with him. Note that on average, the "Rangers" score three goals on the road.
"Boston" is not in their best shape, but at home, they are quite capable of dealing with the "Rangers". The "Rangers" have already played four away matches during this series and will not appear in the best physical condition. Besides, the "Bruins" have almost always proven their superiority over their opponent before.
Our betting option is a win for "Boston" with odds of 1.89 on 1xbet.
