The only NHL playoff action on Monday night is Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers. The Bruins came out of the series blazing, routing the Flyers 7-3 on the road. In Game 2, the Bruins will try to make it two in a row in Philly before heading back to Boston for Games 3 and 4. Here’s your morning lines:

Money Line: Bruins +115, Flyers -135
Puck Line: 5.5 Over (EVEN), Under (-120)

The Bruins are 3-1 on the road in the playoffs, and were one of the best road teams in the NHL during the regular season (24-12-5). The Flyers are 2-2 at home this postseason after going 22-12-7 at home during the regular season. Philadelphia ended the regular season losing 7 of 8 games at home. The teams split two games in Philadelphia this season.

This postseason, the Bruins are 3-1 in their next game after a win. The Flyers are 2-1 after a loss.

Four of eight Bruins playoff games have totaled six or more goals, including four of their last six. Six of eight Flyers postseason games have totaled six or more goals.

These two teams met in the second round last season, and the way the Bruins won the first three games before losing the next four is sure to be fresh in the minds of both teams. I think the safest bet here is to take the over, and I would also lean toward taking the Bruins.
