Bruins Have Historically Dominated Devils

The Boston Bruins have just one win in their past six contests, but a trip to New Jersey on Friday may cure what ails them. The Bruins are 12-2 in their last 14 games when facing the Devils, including 5-1 at Prudential Center.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 10-4 in the Bruins' past 14 games.
  • The Devils are one of just eight teams in the NHL to have a losing record at home.
  • Ryan Spooner has recorded four assists in the past three games for the Bruins.

The Bruins start a five-game road trip on Friday night, which could help out a struggling Boston team who is 11-3-2 while travelling this season. Boston has called up David Pastrnak from the AHL to fill the void left in the lineup after placing Adam McQuaid on injured reserve Thursday.

The Devils offense has been downright bad this season as they are averaging the third-fewest goals per game in the NHL. It doesn’t help that the Mike Cammalleri, the Devils top scorer, has been placed on I.R. and has not played a game since December 30th.
