The Boston Bruins open the New Year with a overtime loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The biggest issue the Boston Bruins have faced all season is the overtime loses and getting the lead and absolutely throwing away the game.
The Boston Bruins (24-7-11) host the Edmonton Oilers (21-17-5) in a Saturday matinee. The last time these two teams have met was back in 2018. The Oilers went on to win that game 3-2 in overtime. The main cause for concern for the Boston Bruins are the star offense Edmonton posses.
The Edmonton Oilers bring one of the biggest names in the NHL today. That is Connor McDavid. McDavid currently leads the NHL in Points (64) and Assists (42). With the Oilers having Connor McDavid as their top player, the Bruins have some of their own. David Pastrnak is one of many great talents on this Bruins team. He is currently holding the league with 30 goals and also has 30 assists.
Other players like Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron have been performing great for the team. The two veteran players (who also share the same line as David Pastrnak) have a combined 37 Goals and 58 Assists.
