Bruins are the Ultimate Road Warriors

Boston Bruins NHL

The Boston Bruins have used the Eastern Conference’s best road record to stay competitive in the tight Atlantic Division and entering Tuesday’s schedule they hold a one-point lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. The B’s will look to keep their momentum on the road alive and well when they visit the San Jose Sharks Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Sharks are 5-0 SU in their last five games with two days off between games.
  • The Sharks are 7-0 SU in their last seven games versus teams with a winning record.
  • The Bruins are 1-4 SU in their last five games versus teams from the Pacific Division.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Sharks at -140 in moneyline markets while the Bruins are +110. As for the total, OVER 5.5 goals is -105 while UNDER 5.5 goals is -125.

The Bruins take their sensational 23-7-3 road record on a four-game trip with three dates in California followed by one at Madison Square Garden with a visit to the New York Rangers. They have a four-game winning streak on the road and have gone 11-2 SU in their last 13 away from home.

The Bruins have been the epitome of “average” versus teams from the Western Conference this season, posting a record of 6-6 versus the Central Division and 4-4-3 against the Pacific.

The Sharks are duking it out with the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks for control of the Pacific and enter Tuesday’s action five points behind the former and three behind the latter. Much like Tuesday’s visitors, the Sharks have saved their best hockey for the road. They have gone 25-9-3 – the best mark in the entire league – and are just 13-15-3 on home ice this season.

Both of these teams have a lot to play for down the stretch, but with the Bruins’ exploits on the road and the Sharks’ issues on home ice, the value may very well be with the visiting side tonight.
