The Boston Bruins finished 2nd in the Atlantic Division and came through a nail-biting first round playoff battle with the Toronto Maple Leafs. They have been inconsistent thus far during the post season games but have won their last 2 over the Blue Jackets to secure a 3-2 series lead. Patrice Bergeron is often talisman for the Bruins and he will be hoping to keep himself in good nick here.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Blue Jackets were in inspired form in the opening round of play-off fixtures and their 4-0 series win over Stanley Cup favourites Tampa Bay Lightning will live long in the memory. They have battled hard against the Bruins but will be aware it’s very much now or never in front of their home fans. Matt Duchene has been the difference maker for the Blue Jackets so far in the play-offs and he will be keen to make an impact again here.
