Game Notes:

  • The bad news: David Krejci did not practice with the Bruins on Sunday and Claude Julien said he is "day-to-day." At practice, Kelly continued to center the Lucic - Griffith line.The good news: Torey Krug is a very real possibility in the lineup tonight.
  • A strong finish against the Oilers was crucial for both team and fan morale. It was fun and refreshing. A confident Dougie Hamilton is an excellent Dougie Hamilton. Rask is improving with a 1.64 goals-against average in his last three games.
  • The Devils are coming off of their third straight regulation loss while the Bruins have won four in a row, and 12 of the last 15 matchups against the Devils. Devil's penalty kill is last in the league and goalie Cory Schneider has been pulled from his lat three starts. Tonight looks good for Bruin's offense.

NEVER FORGET:

We get to see this guy tonight.
