Boston Gets Revenge Over Detroit: Original Six Match-Up, New York Rangers

The Boston Bruins get their revenge over the Detroit Red Wings in regulation as they went on to win 4-1. The Bruins really got the monkey off their back getting this win only because the Red Wings went on to get the victory last Sunday.

The Bruins make the trip to New York City to face the New York Rangers (30-23-4). The last time these two teams have faced off was back in last year (11/29) where the Bruins came out on top in overtime 3-2. The Rangers are coming into the face off with a four game wining streak, as the Bruins are coming in with only two.

As far as leading the league, for the first time this season David Pastrnak shares the top of goals with Toronto Maple Leafs, Auston Matthews. Both players are tied at 42 goals. On top of goals scored what about the other end of the ice? Tuukka Rask currently leads the NHL with a Goals Against Average of 2.08 and a Save Percentage of .931.
