Game Notes:

  • The Bruins have a tough week ahead, but with three (3!) wins in a row, they're as ready as they'll ever be.
  • The Lightning lost to the Flyers 7-3 last night. Victor Hedman and Tyler Johnson sustained lower-body injuries and according to coach Jon Cooper "there's a good chance" both won't play tonight. Yikes. Remember that time (Saturday) the Bruins beat the Flyers 3-1 and David Pastrnak did the thing twice?
  • Tuukka Rask has his swagger back, with a .960 save percentage in his last three games.
