As the Boston Bruins (28-10-12) host the Vegas Golden knights (25-19-7), the last time these two teams have met we’re back in October of last year. The Bruins went on to win that game 4-3 in regulation.
Tuukka Rask remains on the side lines while Jaroslav Halak will be making his 3rd consecutive start. With Rask being absent Halak has went 1-2 (Allowed 8 goals) and as the numbers are not promising there is room for change. With Halak getting more starts now it could help him by learning more since he has been the back up.
Jeremy Lauzon got a call up from Providence to take over for John Moore, and will be paired up with Matt Grzelcyk. Along with Moore being out, David Krejci will be a game time decision. Krejci has been battling an upper body injury, but went from a non contact jersey to a normal practice jersey in today’s practice.
