Hurricanes vs Bruins

Missing their top two defensemen, the Bruins looked doomed heading into their Game 4 matinee on Sunday afternoon. But thanks to star performances from Brad Marchand (2 goals, 3 assists), Patrice Bergeron (1 goal, 2 assists) and David Pastrnak (1 goal, 1 assist), Boston evened their best-of-seven series with Carolina. Bruce Cassidy’s club should get Hampus Lindholm back from injury for Game 5, but Charlie McAvoy will remain sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols. That should give the Hurricanes the advantage they need as the series shifts back to Raleigh. 

Final score prediction: Hurricanes 3, Bruins 2 OT

Leafs vs Lightning

All but the most optimistic Maple Leafs fans should know what’s coming. Pain. The Lightning cruised to a 7-3 victory in Game 4, winning their 16th-consecutive game following a loss over the past three postseasons. Tampa Bay’s Stanley Cup experience should be enough to close out a Toronto team that has failed to advance past round one of the playoffs since 2004. This includes blowing series leads to the Bruins in 2018 and ’19 and a 3-1 advantage to Montreal last year.

Final score prediction: Lightning 5, Leafs 3

Wild vs Blues

Minnesota had all the momentum following consecutive 6-2 and 5-1 victories in Games 2 and 3 before St. Louis rebounded with a 5-2 victory in Game 4. Jordan Binnington made 29 saves in his triumphant return to the Blues net, winning his first playoff game since beating Boston in Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final. If he can regain the magic form he displayed throughout his rookie season, the Wild could be in trouble. This series has always felt destined for seven games, but we’ll pick the Blues to grind out a road victory on Tuesday.

Final score prediction: Blues 4, Wild 3

Oilers vs Kings

The pressure is suddenly on in Edmonton after Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and company were shutout 4-0 in Game 4 on Sunday night. Looking to win their first playoff series since 2017, Jay Woodcroft’s club needs to quickly regain the form they showed in Games 2 and 3 when they outscored Los Angeles 16-2. The Kings have nowhere near the talent as their opponents and no business winning the series, but given the Oilers’ playoff demons, Rogers Place could get awfully quiet if L.A. strikes first in Game 5.

Final score prediction: Oilers 5, Kings 4
