The Boston Bruins missed their opportunity to book their spot in the playoffs on Thursday, as they suffered a rare home defeat. It was an untypical showing by the Bruins on that evening, as the squandered a 2-1 advantage before suffering a 3-2 loss after conceding twice in the final period.
However, their record this season remains incredibly strong, as they have picked up an NHL-high of 103 points, and boast a very impressive win rate of .817. The Bruins have gone 26-3-3 at home this term, and have won nine of their last ten games.

The Detroit Red Wings may yet have a part to play in the battle for a playoff position in the Eastern Conference. They currently sit 13th overall, and are just seven points off the top eight in the standings. Detroit’s recent form has been less than ideal, as they have picked up just three wins over their last ten.
Over that same period, they have lost six times in regulation. However, they do come into this game after picking up a win in their previous game. That win was picked up at home against the Chicago Blackhawks, claiming a 4-3 win.
We expect a strong response from the Bruins this weekend, as they look to recover from their recent home defeat. It could be a wide-winning margin for Boston this weekend.
