Bruins have a date with the Devils tonight

New, comments

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.

Notes:

- Judging by recent history and New Jersey's trap game, I would expect a low scoring game.

- There is a Sam Adams BruFest scheduled for tonight. The festivities start at 4:30 outside The Garden. Local band Hypercane will perform.

- Stat of the Day: Matt Hunwick has 3 goals on 6 shots this season
