The Boston Bruins will look to win a fourth straight playoff game when they travel to New York to do battle with the Rangers later today.

With a victory tonight, the Bruins would gain a 3-0 stranglehold on the series. The Bruins, who won the Stanley Cup in 2011, seem to be clicking at just the perfect time after very nearly being knocked out by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round.

Let's take a look at the betting odds for tonight's game:

Boston Bruins, +1 1/2, -265
New York Rangers, -1 1/2, +225

Now, the moneyline, which represents the odds to win the game straight up:

Boston Bruins, +120
New York Rangers, -140

So, if you wanted to wager $100 on the Bruins to win, you would have the possibility of receiving $120 in profits back if the Bruins manage to pull off the victory.

A successful $140 bet on the Rangers, on the other hand, would yield a total return of $100.

Finally, the over/under line is currently set at 5 goals:

Over 5 Goals, +110
Under 5 Goals, -130

--

The Rangers will be counting on their ace in the hole, Henrik Lundqvist, to return to his typically dominant form on Tuesday night. Lundqvist has a sore shoulder but has said that he is ready to go.

The Bruins, on the other hand, will be looking to continue their recent upswing. The Bruins have gotten contributions from nearly all of their key players, in addition to some very strong goaltending from Rask.

Will the Rangers draw to within 2-1 tonight, or will the Bruins gain a chokehold on the series?
