TD Banknorth Garden, Boston, Massachusetts

The Boston Bruins will try to take a commanding lead in the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday, as they host the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 4 from TD Garden. The Blackhawks Could Be Without Hossa Again For Game Four Wednesday


NHL Sportsbook Line: Boston – 140

When Boston Bruins’ defenseman Zdeno Chara and Chicago Blackhawks’ forward Marian Hossa both left the ice following warm-ups, it appeared to be a sign of how injuries had taken their toll on each team throughout the NHL playoffs. However, while Hossa was a late scratch with an unspecified injury, Chara would be fine and he ended up playing close to 26 minutes with an assist in a 2-0 win. Chara will be back in the lineup for Wednesday’s game four between the two teams and while there is no confirmation on whether or not Hossa will play, the Blackhawks find themselves in a must-win online sports betting situation.

Chicago has managed to score just one goal in its last seven periods of hockey, so getting Hossa back in the lineup will be important. The Blackhawks’ superstars have struggled to generate much offense in front of Boston’sTuukka Rask these last two games, and when they have the Finnish netminder has been there to shut the door.

NHL Betting Preview: Chicago Blackhawks

Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane are tied with Marian Hossa for the most playoff points on Chicago with 15, but they have struggled to get shots on net these last two games and when they have it hasn’t been pretty. The Blackhawks need to find a way to start getting more bodies to the net, as they can’t afford to stay to the outside on every single rush. The skill is there for Chicago to succeed, but it must be more determined on every puck battle and when it comes to clearing their end. The Blackhawks have gotten excellent goaltending from Corey Crawford as well, but made two key mistakes in front of him in game three and it cost them as the Bruins scored on each chance.

Daniel Paille capitalized on a turnover by Dave Bolland for the first Boston goal, and then Patrice Bergeron took advantage of a Niklas Hjalmarsson penalty for the second goal on the powerplay. The Bruins didn’t need to do much other than stay on the fore check as much as possible and make sure that Rask saw every shot he faced, and he made 28 saves for his third shutout of the postseason. Boston has played a physical series and really gotten after Chicago every chance they have had, and they will need to keep the pressure on them heading in to game four.

NHL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

There will be a sense of urgency in both teams heading in to Wednesday’s game, as the Blackhawks look to even the sports betting series while the Bruins attempt to take a commanding three-games-to-one lead before heading back to Chicago. Boston has been the better team in all three games so far, and there is little reason to doubt them at home having not lost at the TD Garden since game five of the opening round.

NHL Betting Pick: Boston Bruins - 140
