NHL betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Columbus Blue Jackets at Boston Bruins and Colorado Avalanche at San Jose Sharks.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Boston Bruins (00:15 BST on Sunday) - Eastern Conference Semi-finals Game 5


The Boston Bruins are determined to take the upper hand in their Eastern Conference semi-final duel against the Columbus Blue Jackets when the series returns to the TD Garden. The Bruins knotted their best-of-seven affair at 2-2 after securing a 4-1 triumph in Raleigh on Thursday night. Patrice Bergeron scored two power-play goals to lead the Bruins back on track after losing Game 2 and Game 3. David Pastrnak had a goal and an assist while Sean Kuraly also scored for Boston. Tuukka Rask took care of business on the defensive end by stopping 39 shots. Columbus’ lone goal came from Artemi Panarin in the second period while Sergei Bobrovsky had 41 saves. Bergeron finally scored after failing to pick up a point in the first three games of the series. He currently has five goals and two assists in the play-offs. Bruins top scorer Brad Marchand also ended his pointless drought in the series after tallying an assist in Game 4. Panarin, who has five goals and five assists in the post-season, is again expected to lead the wildcard Blue Jackets along with Matt Duchene and Seth Jones. The Bruins have the momentum and we expect them to triumph before their home fans.

Colorado Avalanche at San Jose Sharks (03:00 BST on Sunday) - Western Conference Semi-finals Game 5


The Western Conference semi-final duel between the San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche returns to the SAP Centre. The best-of-seven series is tied at 2-2 after the Avalanche buried the Sharks 3-0 at home on Thursday night. Nathan MacKinnon opened the scoring in the second period before Colin Wilson and Erik Johnson added more goals in the third period. Philipp Grubauer made 32 saves for his first career play-off shutout. MacKinnon, who has six goals and seven assists in the post-season, extended his point streak to eight games. He will team up with Mikko Rantanen in their quest to seize the series lead and a chance to finish off their opponents in Denver. The Sharks, however, are determined not to let their home fans down. Logan Couture, who registered a hat-trick in Game 3, will lead San Jose in this vital duel. He is expected to get support from Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson and Tomas Hertl. Martin Jones, who had 25 saves in Game 3, will guard the goal. We expect the Sharks to triumph in Game 5.
