The Bruins season-high six-game road trip comes to an end tonight in Ottawa, and Boston has a chance to leave the six-game stretch with seven points with a win in Canada's capital.
History would suggest they have a good chance to do it; the Bruins haven't lost to Ottawa this season and haven't lost to the Senators in seven games (7-0-0). They also haven't lost at Ottawa in seven games, since a 3-2 defeat in April of 2009.
But more recent history would suggest that the Bruins have their work cut out for them.
Ottawa last played on Wednesday, winning a 5-2 decision over the Washington Capitals at Scotiabank Place.
The Senators are 5-3-2 since the All-Star Break, and are currently on a four-game win streak, in which they've outscored their opposition 21-4, including two shutouts.
The Bruins have been the opposite of hot, although their current point streak is just the second such streak since January 12th, and the Black and Gold have played an improved game their past couple of times out, winning in St. Louis and losing in a shootout at Buffalo last night.
Expect Tim Thomas to be in net for Boston, looking to build off of his strong performance in net against St. Louis.
