Game Notes:

  • Can the Bruins make it 12???
  • Since last these two teams met, Phoenix has won three straight (and five of their last six). Of course, so has Boston. GOIN' STREAKIN'.
  • Goaltending matchup should be Rask vs. Smith.
  • Random fact: Ocho and Rask are on track to win the Jennings trophy as of now - they're tied with LA. Only 149 goals allowed this year.
  • Johnny Boychuk will likely remain out tonight.

NEVER FORGET:

The AHL Coyotes are the Portland Pirates. One time they did this.
