NHL Betting Preview: Devils vs. Bruins

With Mattias Tedenby being assigned to Albany (AHL), Johan Hedberg will be starting for the Devils when they face off against the Bruins.

In the last couple of games, the Devils have played very poorly in the first period. They were outshot by 6 to 1 in the first 10 minutes. New Jersey Devils head coach Peter DeBoer said, “The onus I believe is on the leadership group and the team to get ourselves ready. We have to fix it. That’s a fixable problem.”

The Devils are a perfect 3-0 with a combined 7 points to start the short-season, while the Boston Bruins are 3-0-1, also scoring a combined 7 goals. The Devils have been playing great defense, 2nd-ranked in the league to be precise, allowing only 1.8 goals per game. The Bruins are ranked 5th in the NHL in defense so far this year in defense, so it could be a safe assumption to make that this will be a low scoring game.

Team leaders for New Jersey include: David Clarkson with 3 goals, Patrik Elias with 4 assists and their goalie Martin Brodeur allows 1.69 goals against per game. The team leaders for Boston are: Milan Lucic with 2 goals, Dougie Hamilton with 3 assists and their goalie Tuukka Rask allows 1.96 goals against per game.

Betting Info

The Devils are 2-2 against the spread and have gone 3-1 Under so far this year while the Bruins have are 3-1 ATS and 2-2 against the total.
