Slumping Bruins Look to End Road Drought

Boston Bruins New York Rangers NHL

The clock is ticking on the NHL season and the Boston Bruins have picked a horrible time to go ice cold. The B’s will look to end a three-game losing skid when they visit the New York Rangers in an Eastern Conference battle Wednesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Bruins are 6-15 SU in their last 21 road games versus the Rangers.
  • The Bruins are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games after a loss in their previous effort.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Rangers’ last five versus the Eastern Conference.

The Blueshirts are currently -145 at online shop Bovada while the visiting Bruins are +115. The game has been slapped with a total of 5 with OVER priced at -120 and UNDER at -110.

The Bruins have been one of the best road teams in hockey this season but have not looked like it of late. They head to New York following three-straight losses on a California trip that has them sitting in third in the Atlantic Division with 86 points. They will have a tough task of fighting off the likes of the Detroit Red Wings, New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers down the stretch and a win at MSG Wednesday night will certainly help.

The Metropolitan Division has been wrapped up by the Washington Capitals for some time so the Rangers are playing for positioning from here on out. They sit second in the division with 90 points and are two up on the Pittsburgh Penguins and five up on the Isles.

The Bruins have had the edge in recent meetings with the Rangers, going 7-2 SU in the past nine. The teams have split a pair of meetings already this season with New York getting the upper hand in a 2-1 victory in the most recent contest on January 11.
