NHL Update And Semi- Final/Conference Final Notes

May 14, 2019

While the NHL Western Conference final series, which this season is a ‘2016 redux between San Jose (Sharks) and St. Louis (Blues), is tied at a game apiece for the sixth consecutive season (’14-’19), the Boston Bruins lead the Carolina Hurricanes two games to none, in the Eastern Conference final series.

After trailing (2-1) after two periods at home in game 1, the Bruins scored 4 times in the third period to take game one and the first six goals en route to a (6-2) rout of Carolina in the Mother’s Day afternoon #2.

Thus Boston is an overwhelming favorite to reach the NHL Final for the third time in nine seasons (they won it all in ’11, their lone title in the last 45 NHL seasons and lost to Chicago (Blackhawks) in ’13).

While Carolina is returning home where they have not lost in the ’19 playoffs (5-0), I believe that also is against them, as only the Hurricanes, among the 32 playoffs teams in the NHL and NBA, has not lost at home in these 2019 playoffs.

I predict at least one win at Carolina, for the Bruins.
