First, the reality exists that the Bruins and Stars could meet in the 2020 Stanley Cup Final. Concurrently, both teams are in the thick of the race for the top seed in their respective conferences. Both Dallas and Boston feature among the best defense and goal-tending for NHL odds success. Contrarily the Bruins possess vastly more offensive firepower than do the Stars. Inability to consistently light the lamp has been a drag on Dallas all season. Counter to that is a Bruins team ranking among the most complete in the NHL. A Boston repeat Cup Final appearance is even money.
