As the Boston Bruins (20-5-6) continue their losing streak to a loss over the Ottawa Senators (5-2 In Regulation) how will they fair over the Washington Capitals (22-5-5)?
With the way the Bruins have been playing, you make think they aren’t a playoff team anymore. They are in a slump, and players like David Pastrnak, Brad Marchand who are or we’re the teams main goal scorers aren’t producing. The other night they both got two assists each but no goals. With Patrice Bergeron in the line up again, he made his return to the ice against Ottawa where he went on to score a goal along with Jake Debrusk.
The Washington Capitals have always been a top 5 team. With players like Alexander Ovechkin (21 G / 12 A), T.J. Oshie (11 G / 11 A), Jakub Vrana (15 G / 12 A), and goal tender Braden Holtby ( 2.84 GAA / .909 SV%). They can put up some major points, and with the Bruins struggling getting points on the board early in the game can be a challenge.
Boston: Tuukka Rask
