There are three Game 4s scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, including the Toronto Maple Leafs looking to take a 3-1 lead in their series over the Boston Bruins. In other action, the Colorado Avalanche will be looking for the 3-1 lead in their series against the Calgary Flames as will the Nashville Predators against the Dallas Stars.

Featured Game

Boston Bruins(+105) vs.Toronto Maple Leafs(-125)

The Tampa Bay Lightning are not the only team on the ropes in their series, as the team with the second-best record in the NHL are close to finding themselves down 3-1 in their series. The Toronto Maple Leafs won Game 3 of their series over the Boston Bruins in a wild second. When all five goals were scored in that frame. Auston Matthews and Andreas Johnsson added a goal and an assist in the period and Frederik Andersen saved 34 shots.

Goaltending Matchup:

Tuukka Rask has lost five of his last seven decisions but has not played badly in the series. Rask has allowed just seven total goals through the first three contests, but his teammates have not been able to produce offensively for him. The Boston goaltender finished the regular season 27-13-4 with a 2.48 goals-against average.

Frederik Andersen has clearly been a difference maker in this series. He has also allowed seven total goals in the series, but just three combined in the two victories. Andersen posted a .944 save percentage in Game 3. The Toronto goaltender finished the regular season 36-16-5 with a 2.77 goals-against average.

Trends to Watch:

The Boston Bruins are…

5-2 in their last seven games on the road.
21-10 in their last 31 games.
1-6 in their last seven games against Atlantic Division teams.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are…

2-5 in their last seven games at home.
2-4 in their last five games overall.
3-7 in their last 10 conference quarterfinals games.

Stat Pack:

Bruins:
Goals For: 3.13
Goals Against: 2.59
Power-Play: 25.9%
Penalty Killing: 79.9%

Maple Leafs:
Goals For: 3.49
Goals Against: 3.04
Power-Play: 21.8%
Penalty Killing: 79.9%

Prediction

The Bruins have simply not found answers for Andersen. Rask has played well, but he has been outdone by his opposite number. On top of that, the Bruins are 2-8 in their last 10 trips to Toronto, which isn’t good news for a team that is desperate for a victory. Boston simply can’t afford to lose, but they are going to anyway.

The total is set at 6.0 for this contest. There have been five goals scored in every game of this series so far, so there is no reason to believe that the over is the right choice here either. On top of that, these two teams have gone under in each of the last four meetings and have gone under in four of the last five in Toronto. Take the Toronto Maple Leafs to win, 3-2.

Two Games to Watch

Calgary Flames (-116) vs. Colorado Avalanche (-105)

The Colorado Avalanche absolutely dominated Game 3. Nate MacKinnon got his team Rollingwood to power-play goals in the first period and he would add an assist in the frame as Colorado rolled to a 6-2 victory over the Calgary Flames. That gave the Avalanche a 2-1 lead in the series. Philipp Grubauer continues to impress in the series, stopping 27 of 29 shots.

Why Calgary Wins:

Avalanche are 3-7 in their last 10 conference quarterfinals games.
Flames are 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between these two teams.

Why Colorado Wins:

Avalanche are 10-4 in their last 14 games.
Avalanche are 7-0 in their last seven games at home.
Flames are 1-4 in their last five games.
Flames are 1-6 in their last seven conference quarterfinals games.
Home team has won four of the last five meetings between these two teams.
Mike Smith gave up six goals in his last start for Calgary.
Grubauer has allowed two goals or last in eight of his last 10 appearances.

What About the Total?

Gounder 6.0, because…

Calgary has gone under in four of their last five games.
Calgary has gone under in eight of their last 11 games.
Avalanche has gone under in 13 of their last 18.
Grubauer has allowed two goals in each of his last two games.



Nashville Predators (-105) vs. Dallas Stars (-115)

After a scoreless first period, Nashville scored two goals on their way to a 3-2 victory. Rocco Grimaldi and Filip Forsberg would light the lamp in the second frame and Mikael Granlund scored the game-winner with a little over eight minutes left. Pekka Rinne stopped 40 shots to earn the victory.

Why Nashville Wins:

Predators are 5-0 in their last five games on the road.
Predators are 6-1 in their last seven games.
Predators are 13-3 in their last 16 conference quarterfinals games.
Road team has won six of the last eight meetings between these two teams.
Predators are 5-1 in the last six meetings in Dallas.
Rinne has allowed three total goals in his last two games.

Why Dallas Wins:

Stars are 6-3 in their last nine games.
Stars are 5-3 in their last eight conference quarterfinals games.
Predators are 2-4 in their last six games against teams with a winning record.
Ben Bishop has allowed two goals or less in nine of his last 10 starts

What About the Total?

Go under 5.0, because…

Total has gone under in each of the first three games of this series.
Nashville has gone under in 24 of their last 37 games.
Nashville has gone under in 13 of their last 17 games on the road.
Dallas has gone under in 20 of their last 30 at home.
