The new NHL season will give us a lot of interesting meetings, among them stands out the central duel of the game day, "Carolina" against "Boston". The game of these teams will take place on October 29 at 02:00 Moscow time. Our portal offers you its forecast for the outcome of this meeting.
A lot of changes in the offseason occurred in the composition of the Hurricanes. The new first number of "Carolina", Anderson, although he is a quality player, is not stable, although at the start of the season he shows a high level, which has already brought several victories to "Carolina". A good hurricane game is also promoted by an updated defensive line, which has become more reliable. So far, Carolina is going without losing points, and in the last match beat Toronto at home with a score of 4:1.
After not the best last championship in the offseason, the team lost two veterans Raask and Krejci, who for a long time personified "Boston". The goalkeeper position was strengthened by the signing of Ulmark, there were also several interesting newcomers to the depth of the squad, but this can hardly be called a strong reinforcement. Boston got off to a good start in the new season, but in their last meeting they lost 4-1 on the road to Florida.
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Boston - Smith (lower body injury), Blid (lower body injury), Foligno (lower body injury).
Statistics and figures
- The last match between these teams ended with a 2-1 victory for Boston.
- Carolina has an excellent streak of five consecutive wins.
- Boston has won three times in its last five matches.
It is difficult to single out a favorite in this confrontation. Both teams have strong lineups, but the hosts are now showing a crazy level of play and are not losing. "Boston" does not always look confident in attack, and there are misunderstandings in defense. I think the Hurricanes will win on their own platform.
