Bruins Look to Get Back on Track Against NHL-Worst Blue Jackets

The last time the Bruins and Blue Jackets faced off, Boston was at the beginning of a tear and Columbus was the worst team in the league.

Only one of those things has changed in the past 23 days.

The Bruins, losers of two in a row, look to right their leaking ship and get things back on track at the tail end of a stretch in which they've played four games in six days, an exhausting schedule that's found the Black and Gold struggling once again to get the puck in the back of the net.


After a dominating 3-1 win at Pittsburgh on Monday, the Bruins fell 2-1 at Winnipeg, despite a strong effort for most of the game. On Thursday, they returned home and outlined the goal, hitting five posts but never getting a puck into the net in a 2-0 loss against the Florida Panthers.

But the Panthers are tied for first place in the Eastern Conference, and the Blue Jackets are at the other end of the spectrum. Curtis Sanford is no Jose Theodore and the Blue Jackets aren't exactly the Penguins.

But that doesn't mean it'll be an easy task for a tired Bruins team.

With Daniel Paille out with a concussion, the lines should look like this:

Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Tyler Seguin

Rich Peverley - Chris Kelly - Benoit Pouliot

Shawn Thornton - Gregory Campbell - Jordan Caron

Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk

Joe Corvo - Dennis Seidenberg

Andrew Ference - Adam McQuaid

Tim Thomas

Tuukka Rask
