After a commanding 7-2 win over the St. Louis Blues in Game 3, the Boston Bruins are sitting pretty ahead of Game 4 as heavy favorites to win the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
A Boston win in Monday night's bout would give the Bruins a 3-1 series lead over the Blues, right before the two teams head back to Boston for Game 5.
While Boston is favored to win it all, the Blues are actually slight favorites to tie the series up in Game 4. However, in order to have a fighting chance of making this a reality, the Blues likely need to play more disciplined hockey and limit their penalties.
Boston went 4-for-4 on power-play opportunities in Game 3, which helps explain the Bruins' lopsided road victory. In fact, they were so efficient on the power play, it only took the Bruins four shots to score all four of those goals.
Despite being slight underdogs in Game 4, the Bruins look to take a 3-1 series lead and an opportunity to clinch the Stanley Cup on their home ice in Game 5. It would be their first Stanley Cup win since the 2011 Finals, when Boston defeated the Vancouver Canucks in seven games.
