St. Louis Blues @ Boston Bruins | NHL Betting Tips and Predictions
Game two of the 2018-19 Stanley Cup final promises to be a classic at the TD Garden with the Boston Bruins holding a 1-0 lead in the series. Game 1 was a fiery encounter, with tempers flaring on both sides and with so much at stake, game two should be equally as feisty in front of the partisan Boston home crowd.

St. Louis Blues
Western Conference champions St Louis Blues continue to defy the odds in the 2019-19 NHL season and have impressed throughout the campaign. They held their own in the opening game against the Bruins – ultimately losing 4-2 but they will be hopeful of troubling them again here. Brayden Schenn impressed hugely in game one of the series and the Canadian will be looking for a repeat performance here.
The 2011 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins look well placed to go all the way again this year following their Eastern Conference triumph. They went behind against the Blues in game one before breaking down the organised defence to pick up a 1-0 lead in the series. Sean Kuraly inspired the Bruins’ rally in the first game and he will be hoping to impress on the big stage once again at the TD Garden.
