Boston Bruins (12-3-5) travel to face the New Jersey Devils (7-8-4). While the Bruins are going through some struggles and trying to get all their players healthy, New Jersey hopes to get the winning streak rolling with two in a row thus far.
With Tuukka Rask in the net tonight, lets hope he can pull of a great performance like he did on October 12th against the Devils with a perfect 0.00 GAA allowing no goals. Not to mention goals from Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and Joakim Nordstrom to get the win 3-0.
Major key for tonight’s game, and a pattern we have all been seeing is giving up third period goals. I cant even stress enough on how that is our biggest killer. That’s the main reason right now the Boston Bruins are losing as much as they are, is because of late goals. On top of allowing the late goals the need to tighten up and play more conservative when the time comes.
On top of the Bruins playing the Devils tonight, that’s just the beginning of a long week the Bruins face. With a game on Thursday at TD Garden against the Buffalo Sabres (10-7-3) and another game Saturday against the Minnesota Wild (7-11-2). Look out for some fatigue in the players, because its going to get busy.
