Boston Bruins Host Los Angeles King’s: East Vs West


The Boston Bruins (21-7-6) are coming off of a huge win over the Florida Panthers to end their losing streak. They look to take on the Los Angeles King’s (14-18-3) on home ice.

Key Factors: Patrice Bergeron doing great since his return back to the ice. Since his return he has had two goals and a assist. David Pastrnak seems to be getting back in the rhythm of things. In his last five games he has seen the back of the net just three times and also having just two assists. On the injury side of things Kevan Miller was set to make a return to the line up but a set back has occurred. The defenseman suffered a knee cap injury last season and only made 39 appearance’s. With John Moore back in the line up, Bruins Head coach Bruce Cassidy said he is pleased with the way he has been performing. In just the last five games Moore has had a goal and a assist but on top of that he penalty killing has been superb.

Los Angeles Kings have always seemed to be a top competitor, but what about the win and loss record? With just 14 wins and combined 21 loses they are at the bottom of the standings in the Pacific division. Just in their last 10 games they went 4-5-1. For the Kings, they really need to step up their game. Sure, there is plenty of season left but to get themselves out of that hole, they need to start climbing.

Starting Goalie’s:

Boston– Tuukka, Rask: (13-4-3) GAA:2.24 / SV%.926

Los Angeles– Jonathan, Quick: (9-12-2) GAA:3.06 / SV%.891

Tonight’s Game: 7PM- TD Garden, Boston, Mass.
