It comes as no surprise that the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins are in the top spot of the Eastern Conference. Boston has been steamrolling with the NHL betting lines as one of the most complete 200-foot teams in the game. The Bruins have not gotten over losing game seven of the Stanley Cup Final on home ice to the underdog St. Louis Blues and are fully focused on completing their mission. Meanwhile, the Dallas Stars have been flirting with top spot in the Western Conference.
Like the B’s, Dallas has a strong back end and good goaltending. However, their inability to score consistently may prove fatal come playoff time.
