- Last time these two teams met was a 2-0 Avs win at TD Garden on October 10. It was a terrible game. The Bruins, however have won four of their past five games at the Pepsi Center.
- If the Bruins win tonight, it'll be their first 11-game win streak since the 1970-1971 season. They haven't lost in regulation on the road since playing the Kings on that early January Cali road trip.
- The Bruins have taken 45 of a possible 58 points since 2014 started. The Avalanche and Blackhawks have each taken 44 points since 2014 started.
- The KIL line has been killing it, with a combined 15 goals over the last 10 games. Also killing it: Patrice Bergeron (what else is new) and Carl Soderberg, who has 3G 6A in the last 10 games.
- The Avalanche are currently sitting one point out of second place in Conference III behind Chicago. They're 6-3-1 in their last 10 games and lost their last one in OT.
- The goaltending matchup tonight should be Rask vs. Varlamov.
let's just listen to Patrick Roy a bit.
