Puck Line Pick
The Bruins face a tough weekend back-to-back as they host the Arizona Coyotes at TD Garden before a quick turn around road trip. Boston has returned to form with five-straight wins and looks to have relocked its hold on the Atlantic Division. At the near-mid point of the season, Arizona looked like a legitimate playoff contender, but that hasn’t held true as of late. The Coyotes are 2-8 in their last 10 games. They are coming off an ugly performance against the Carolina Hurricanes as they gave up five goals. Boston has owned the last 10 head-to-heads against Arizona, as the Bruins have won each of the last 10 games. They have also been near unstoppable at home. Taking the Bruins on the puck line with high confidence is a must.
Over Under Pick
The over-under total in the last 10 head-to-head meetings between the Coyotes and Bruins, is 5-4 in favor of the over in that span. Only once in the last three meetings have Boston and Arizona combined for more than three total goals. Boston is top 10 in the NHL in goal scoring, but they haven’t quite had luck with the over in recent games. As four of their last five games have resulted in five-goal totals or less. However, this is the type of game you take a chance on the over, especially when the total is at 5.5.
