Carolina vs Boston: Will The Hurricanes Cope Without Their Leader?
18/08/2020, 00:00 GTM
The Boston Bruins have a significant advantage in personal meetings and in the series they also lead with the score (2-1).
However, it is worth considering the fact that in the last three games "Carolina" looked pretty good. We want to note that absolutely all matches between these teams are played for a total less than 6 goals.
“Carolina” after an offensive defeat in overtime from “Boston” were able to pull themself together and won the next match with a score of 3:2. True, in the third fight they failed again(4: 5) and, what is more insulting, lost their main scorer in the person of Andrei Svechnikov, who was injured while fighting on a patch with Zdeno Hara.
Now it will be very difficult for the team to come up with something in the attack, especially against such a defensive opponent as Boston. We would like to emphasize that now the Hurricanes will have to play mainly from defense and look for their chances in counterattacks. By the way, all goals in the previous meeting, with the exception of one that flew into an empty net, were conceded by Brindamor's charges in unequal compositions.

Boston were defeated in four out of six games and did not look their best during the playoffs. However, in the series against Carolina, the Bruins are trying their best to at least advance to the next round. Note that before the meeting with the "Hurricanes" the team could not open the defense of other opponents more than two times and now they even succeed in doing something in unequal compositions and, in particular, in the majority.
Bruce Cassidy's team have always been famous for their defensive style of hockey, so it's not surprising that the Mishki score little or concede a goal. We emphasize that now the main leaders in the lineup are Brad Marchand and David Kreichi, who scored six points each.
We think that the loss of Andrei Svechnikov will seriously affect Carolina's attacking play and it will be even more difficult for them to open up Boston's already impenetrable defense. Most likely, the Bruins will now feel much more confident and will achieve success in the upcoming meeting, but the fight will again be held with a minimum number of goals.
