The Boston Bruins (27-8-11)are coming off a three game win streak (Defeated: Predators, Jets and Islanders). They look to continue that streak tonight as they face the Philadelphia Flyers (23-16-6).
Tonight is a huge night for defense man Zdeno Chara as this will be his 1000th career game dressed as the captain. Now Chara will be the 6th Boston Bruin to complete this feat. He is now on the list for this among players such as Patrice Bergeron, Wayne Cashman, Ray Bourque, Johnny Buyck, and Don Sweeney.
The Boston Bruins remain to be the only team in the NHL to have not reached the double digits in the loss column and remains to be the leader for the Atlantic.
One of the main reasons the Bruins have been doing great is the goaltending and defense. Both Tuukka Rask and Jaroslav Halak have combined for the second most shutout wins with five and the third highest team save percentage of .9206.
Boston– Jaroslav, Halak- GAA 2.34 / SV%.923 (10 W/ 4 L/ 5OTL)
Philadelphia– Carter, Hart- GAA 2.53 / SV%.908 (14 W/ 11 L/ 3OTL)
Tonight’s Game: 7PM- Wells Fargo Center- Philadelphia, Penn.
