CAROLINA HURRICANES @ BOSTON BRUINS PREDICTION

Boston Bruins lead this series 3-1 and despite the shock news that star goalie Tuukka Rask will be unavailable for the foreseeable future for personal reasons, that has only added to their motivation. They showed great character to come back in the third period from 0-2 down to win 4-3 and they will be confident of wrapping things up here. Both teams are expected to have the same set of players at their disposal for this game and the Bruins should get the win in game five.
