Game 3 puck line odds: Bruins +1.5 (-300), Blues -1.5 (+250)
Game 3 over/under: 5 goals
Wyshynski: The Blues are 0-3 in Game 3s this postseason, including two losses at home. The Bruins are 1-2 in Game 3, with both losses on the road. Why go Bruins here? Well, it's going to be a series of adjustments, and I think the Bruins will course correct after the Blues really controlled the forecheck in Game 2. I think having six defensemen again will make a difference, as will the Blues losing center Oskar Sundqvist to suspension, which guts their fourth line. And you can't keep Patrice Bergeron down forever. I fully expect a 2-2 series headed back to Boston, but I like the Bruins in Game 3.
Pick: Bruins ML to win +100
