The Bruins will be back in action tonight when they take the Garden ice against the New Jersey Devils. The B's will try to carry the momentum from Saturday night's thrilling come from behind shootout winner over Ottawa.
The B's will do whatever possible to avoid becoming a footnote in the NHL record books. Martin Brodeur is just one shutout shy of tying Terry Sawchuk's all-time mark of 103 career shutouts. The Devils did play last night, but Brodeur isn't one to take too many night offs (and their back-up is Yann Danis). I would expect to see Marty in goal tonight gunning to tie the all-time record.
