Hapless Bruins host Homeless Canucks

New, comments

It will be the hapless vs. the homeless this afternoon at TD Garden as the Bruins, who have lost 9 consecutive games (0-6-3) will host the Vancouver Canucks, who find themselves on a 14-game road trip as the city of Vancouver prepares for the Olympics. The Canucks enter this afternoon's game on a two-game skid after losses to Montreal and Ottawa, but are 7-3-0 over their last 10 games.
