NHL | Boston 2 @ Carolina 3 | 05/14 | 8:30 PM UTC

Carolina -135

WIN

ANALYSIS: Does home-ice advantage matter this much? With the last line change and Boston's stellar trio of Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron, yes. It's all about defending them. The Canes have dominated the three at home and the B's their three at home. Sometimes it's simple, stupid. For what it's worth, and not much, Carolina can tie an NHL record with its sixth straight Game 7 win. Obviously goes back years. I like random facts, for example: "Did you know that the human head weighs 8 pounds? Do you know that bees and dogs can smell fear?" Agree/disagree? On the pick or human head weight.
