The Bruins and Hurricanes will meet at the TD Garden tonight in what will be the first of three regular season matchups. Both teams have been playing great this season and could definitely end up meeting at some point in the playoffs so this should be a good one tonight. Let's take a closer look at this matchup and get into our Bruins vs Hurricanes Pick - NHL Picks 1/24/24.
The Hurricanes have a solid record of 25-15-5, placing them third in the Metropolitan Division. They are coming off a loss against the Minnesota Wild, where despite outshooting the Wild, they fell 5-2.
Key player Martin Necas has been in excellent form, showing dynamism and effectiveness, particularly after returning from an upper-body injury. Another player to watch is Sebastian Aho, who has been on a scoring spree, contributing significantly to the team’s offense.
The Bruins have been on a remarkable run, boasting a record of 29-8-9, which puts them at the top of the Atlantic Division. They are currently on a five-game winning streak, having recently defeated the Winnipeg Jets 4-1.
The team’s offense has been a driving force, with players like Charlie Coyle stepping up significantly. Coyle’s recent performance has set a new high mark in his Boston career. The Bruins' defense and goaltending have also been strong, contributing to their position as one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.
Another key factor in this game is that the Bruins will be playing on their home ice where they have gone 16-3-3 this season.
Bruins vs Hurricanes Prediction:
I'm liking the Bruins to stay hot in this one with the 5 game winning streak and a couple of really good wins against the Jets and the Avalanche. Plus they automatically have an edge on their home ice where that have absolutely dominated over the last two seasons. The Hurricanes have lost 2 of their last 3 and they've allowed 10 goals in those 2 games alone. The Bruins have been lighting up the scoreboard in recent games so look for them to get the win at home tonight.
