The Boston Bruins (17-3-5) host the post Thanksgiving match up and will take on the New York Rangers (12-9-2). What we have in store today is just incredible. Another Original 6 match-up, Chance to win six straight, and donning of the new sweaters.
Key Factors going in to todays afternoon game:
The New York Rangers look to extend a streak of their own to wining four in the row if they can do it today. Artemi Panarin putting up good numbers with just 32 points through 23 contests. Rangers are sixth in the metropolitan division just behind the Philadelphia Flyers and ahead of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Boston Bruins are going to have Patrice Bergeron sit out the game today. As the mentioned they are going to take it easy with the center as he still battles a lower body injury. As we know he did not travel to play in any of the last two games. With that being said it looks like the line up will consist of David Krejci taking Patrice Bergeron spot, and Jack Studnicka will pair up with Charlie Coyle and Jake Debrusk. Bruins look to extend their win streak to six games and on top of that they look to extend their game point streak to 10.
