The Hurricanes were only slight favorites going into their first-round series against the Boston Bruins, priced at -115 on DraftKings. But after two convincing wins to open the series, along with an injury to Bruins defenseman Hampus Lindholm, probability has shifted in Carolina’s direction.

Hurricanes winger Nino Niederreiter has scored three goals in two games, while defenseman Tony DeAngelo has recorded four assists.

Naturally, Eastern Conference odds for the Bruins have spiked. Boston has gone from +800 to open the playoffs to +1500 after dropping the first two games in Carolina.

As for the rest of the Eastern Conference odds, there has been some movement towards the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins after their Game 1 road wins.
