With the Boston Bruins (20-3-5) continuing their winning streak to 8 games with a win over Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday Night (2-0) in regulation, their were a couple notables to take away from that. 1.) Jaroslav Halak played in his 500th career game, and on top of that he went on to get the win with a shut out. 2.) David Krejci Scored his 200th career goal which is a milestone but the veteran center said “Its just a number.”
Tonight’s match-up against the Chicago Blackhawks (10-12-5) looks like an easy win since Chicago is having the worst start to their season. Wrong… Even though Chicago is on a losing streak doesn’t mean they can’t win. All in all you take a look back at the record between Boston and Chicago you’ll see that these two teams are apart of the Original Six so they have seen each other a lot. To be exact these two teams of played each other 590 times (268W/ 239L/ 79T/ 4OL).
Chicago has a powerful offensive unit with names like Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Brent Seabrook, Andrew Shaw, Duncan Keith, etc. My personal experience and seeing these star players it’s always a challenge for opposing teams. On top of Chicago having goal scoring players, how will the Boston Bruins offense compare tonight?
We all have to admit the past few games Boston hasn’t really been scoring goals until the 2nd or 3rd period. Take last nights game for example. Boston didn’t score a goal till the 3rd with 5 minutes remaining. Then another goal 1 minute and 8 seconds after. Sure they went on to win but they have to start scoring first.
In the net tonight:
Boston- Tuukka Rask
Chicago- Robin Lehner
Tonight’s Game: 7PM- TD Garden, Boston.
