The Bruins had the greatest regular season in history last year and have started 2-0 in 2023. Conversely, the Sharks appear destined for another long season. They have lost their first three games of the season against a brutal schedule that consisted of the Knights, Avs, and Canes.

Though they are on opposite coasts, these teams have seen each other a lot since 1991. However, the rivalry has been very one-sided. The Sharks have not beaten the Bruins since 2016, with many of those losses being blowouts. The fact is these two teams could not be further apart, which will lead to an easy cover of the puck line tonight.
There is a reason why the puck line prices are where they are. This is a lopsided matchup that is going to lead to an easy cover for Boston. David Pastrnak has started hot and leads the team in points with four, with eight other players registering at least one. They are supported by one of the best goalies in the league, Linus Ullmark. That makes them one of the most balanced teams in the league and will likely result in another impressive season.
San Jose is going to have a dreadful season. Erik Karlsson was this team's only star, but he left for Pittsburgh in the offseason. That explains the team's struggles to score, with just five goals through three games. The good news is that new winger Filip Zadina has started strong with two goals to open the season. The former first-round pick was a bust in Detroit, but a change of scenery may be all the 23-year-old needs.
While the lack of offense is a problem, the Sharks also have question marks between the pipes. They brought in MacKennzie Blackwood from New Jersey, pairing him with 2022 starter Kaapo Kahkonen. Blackwood was excellent against a good Avs team but was hammered for six goals against the Canes on Tuesday. Kahkonen was able to beat up in his lone start, allowing four goals and saving 87% of shots against the Knights. We see this situation improving as the Sharks' schedule eases up, but it may not matter if the team can’t find a way to score.
If you are looking to wager on this game, the Bruins puck line is the easiest money you will make all week.
