Florida Panthers vs. Boston Bruins

My Pick - Aleksander Barkov to Account for Over 0.5 Assists (+105 at DraftKings)

The second-round matchup between the Boston Bruins and the Florida Panthers has been one-sided in each game played. There has been a lot of offense played in this surprising series.

The Panthers were defeated 5-1 in game one before rebounding big in game two with a 6-1 score. One player who has been effective through the two games played this season is forward Aleksander Barkov. He accounted for two points and two assists in the Panthers' win over the Bruins. Barkov accounted for an assist in game one when the Panthers' offense was virtually non-existent.

Through seven games played, Barkov has accumulated 10 total points and four goals. He has accounted for an assist in four games, including the last three games played.

The Panthers have revitalized their offense with the 6-1 win. They will look for their star players to get their offense rolling as the Panthers will face a tenacious Bruins defense and the Bruins' home crowd. Look for Barkov to continue his assist streak on Friday night.

Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks

My Pick - Brock Boeser to Account for Over 0.5 Points (-160 at DraftKings)

The Vancouver Canucks have up and down when it comes to efficiency on the offensive side of the ice this regular season and postseason. They have been either incredibly explosive or they been stale at several points in games.

The most consistent player in the postseason for the Canucks is forward Brock Boeser. Through seven games played this postseason, Boeser has accounted for a team-high in total points accounted and goals scored with four. He has accounted for a point in five of the seven games played.

He was the most reliable player in the 4-3 overtime win over the Nashville Predators in game five.

There have been several times this postseason where the Edmonton Oilers have played efficient defense and allowed their opponents to score at will. The Canucks could accomplish this in game two with a solid performance from Boeser.
