Boston Bruins Weekly Predictions: Oct 5th to 11th


The NHL regular season is fast approaching and, for the duration of the next months of hockey, I will be posting weekly predictions of who the Bruins play and how they may do. Feel free to use the comment section below to make your own weekly predictions. We’ve only got two games in the first week here, so we can take it nice and slow to start.

The Boston Bruins find themselves on a three game home ice advantage streak hosting the Winnipeg Jets and the Montreal Canadiens in their first two regular season games. These games may or may not include the services of captain Zdeno Chara. I am going into this week under the assumption that he will not play, just because I haven’t heard any confirmation that he will play.

Bruins v Jets

On Thursday, I expect that the TD Garden will explode with support and cheers. The Winnipeg Jets are a good team and will battle for the playoffs this year, but, with Boston playing their home opener, the anticipation will raise their level of play considerably. It will be a close game with the Bruins having a big third period and putting the Jets away late. I say the Bruins will win 4-2, sealing the deal with an empty net goal.

  • Bruins v Canadiens

    This is a huge Saturday night game for both teams. The Boston Bruins need to get back into the winning column against their all time rivals and the Canadiens would love to take down the Bruins in their own arena. It can’t be ignored that the Canadiens have Boston’s number and that the game will be all over the place and that typically plays into Montreal’s advantage. Due to these reasons, I have to say, with a heavy heart, that Montreal will win this game. I am hoping that the Bruins can push to overtime for some three on three action, but my sports gut is telling me that the Canadiens will score early and hold the lead for the entire game. I predict the Bruins will lose 2-1 to the Montreal Canadiens, in regulation.

    So, by the end of this week, the Bruins will have started their regular season with a 1-1-0 record. I hope that I am wrong about the Canadiens match, but with these predictions, I will always be putting my bias towards the Bruins to the side. Whatever the result, both of these games should be absolutely electrifying filled with memorable moments. It’s finally time to get this season started!
