Bruins looking to get even with Carolina

It has only been six days since the Bruins and the Hurricanes last squared off.  Carolina held off a late Bruins rally to secure the 3-2 win in Raleigh.   The Bruins will be looking to increase their offense that has only scored ten goals in their first five game.  They are currently 1-20 on the power-play, a trend that has continued since last season.  After scoring on their fist power-play of the season they haven't scored since.  

After a rough start, the Canes have won their last two decisions and will be challenging the Bruins to continue their winning streak. Tuukka Rask will certainly do his part to end that streak, but the offense needs to wake up and help Rask out by putting a few goals up on the board.
