Bruins set to host Senators in MLK Day matinee

The Bruins are back from their California road trip that saw them go 1-1-1 and will be back on home ice this afternoon when they host the Ottawa Senators at TD Garden for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day matinee. The B's will try to bounce back from a disappointing 4-3 shootout loss to the LA Kings on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Senators are riding a 2-game win streak after beating the Montreal Canadiens 4-2 on Saturday night.
