NHL betting tips from Bettingpro.com's expert, including the best bets from Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes.

Boston Bruins at Carolina Hurricanes (01:00 BST on Friday) - Eastern Conference Finals Game 4


The Boston Bruins will try to sweep the Carolina Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference finals. Tuesday’s 2-1 win at PNC Arena allowed Bruce Cassidy’s boys to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Chris Wagner and Brad Marchand scored back-to-back goals in the second period and it was enough to hold on to victory. Calvin de Haan trimmed Boston’s lead before the period ended but neither team lit the lamp in the final 20 minutes. Joakim Nordstrom, Sean Kuraly, David Krejci and Charlie McAvoy each tallied an assist as Bruins extended their winning streak to six games. Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask took care of business on the defensive end by stopping 35 shots. Carolina puck stopper Curtis McElhinney had 29 saves as he started in place of the struggling Petr Mrazek, who gave up 11 goals in the first two games of the series. It remains uncertain who will head coach Rod Brind'Amour start in this do-or-die duel. Marchand improved his team-high points tally to 16. Krejci, who extended his point streak to five games, has 13 points while Charlie Coyle and David Pastrnak have 12 apiece. Sebastian Aho, who has scored a point in each of the first three games of the series, will lead Carolina in their bid to extend the series back to Boston. The Finnish left winger has five goals and seven assists in the play-offs. Expected to back him up are Jaccob Slavin, Teuvo Teravainen and Jordan Staal. Should the Bruins win, they will advance to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since 2013 when they lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games. Boston last hoisted the prestigious trophy in 2011. We expect the Bruins to clinch the series.
