Back Bruins vs Golden Knights in Vegas NHL Picks

Teams will meet for the second and final time this season when the Las Vegas Golden Knights visit the Boston Bruins on Thursday. Both teams have been on a bit of a slide recently, with the Knights’ latest win putting an end to a three-game losing streak while Boston is in the middle of its own three-game skid. The slide has dropped Vegas further into second in the Pacific Division while Florida has caught up with the Bruins in first in the Atlantic. Vegas got the better of the Bruins the first time around, but NHL odds have Boston set to even the season series.

Golden Knights vs Bruins Moneyline Pick: Bruins (-155)

The Bruins have had a tough go of it recently, but they should be able to turn things around when they return home, where they have a solid 18-7-5 record.

Although Boston’s offense has had a bit of a struggle during its skid, averaging 2.3 goals in its last three, it should be able to find a bit more success at home, where it scored three a game in its last three. The Knights’ defense has struggled, allowing 4.33 goals a game in their last three games, offering another opportunity for the Bruins to find the back of the net.

However, Boston hasn’t quite been performing to its fourth-ranked defense either – it has allowed 3.33 goals a game in its last three. With injuries to a pair of Vegas’ top scorers, though, its offense has had a tougher time coming by goals and may do so again on the road against a top defense.

With Boston returning home and looking to end a skid, the Bruins should be a solid NHL pick to avoid the sweep against the Golden Knights.

Golden Knights vs Bruins Player Prop Pick: Jonathan Marchessault At Least One Goal (+179)

Jonathan Marchessault has been the Knights’ top scorer with 32 goals and he has remained consistent despite Vegas’ recent losing skid. Marchessault has scored a goal in all but three of the Knights’ games this month, scoring seven goals in nine games and one in each of the last three games.

In his first game against Boston, Marchessault managed an assist, though he has been productive on the road, scoring 17 goals in 29 away games. The Knights are likely to look to Marchessault yet again to light the lamp and keep it close with Boston once more.
