Game notes

The Bruins and Coyotes resume their famous, heated rivalry tonight, playing each other for the second time in a little more than a week. The Bruins, you'll remember, won that game, 5-3, but blew a 3-1 third period lead before Patrice Bergeron saved us all.

The Coyotes have gone 2-1-1 since that Bruins game. They were in action in Toronto last night, where they beat the Leafs, 4-3. Martin Hanzal left that game after the first period with a lower body injury. As of Tuesday morning, there's no word on his availability tonight.

Youngsters Max Domi and Anthony Duclair have continued their hot start, with Domi scoring a goal in the city where he grew up. Klas Dahlbeck, the NHL player with the name most likely to be found in a book by Roald Dahl, has recorded a point in three straight games for the Coyotes.

Mike Smith started for Arizona last night, meaning we may see Anders Lindback between the pipes tonight.

The Bruins are coming off of a solid 5-3 win over the Islanders. David Krejci remains red hot, Bergeron is the greatest, Pastrnak scored, etc. No word yet on the availability of Matt Beleskey for tonight's game. With Jonas Gustavsson starting on Friday in Brooklyn, it's fairly safe to assume Tuukka Rask will be in net tonight.

Never forget

It's hard to find Bruins-Coyotes highlights, so here, watch these from the first time these two teams met this season.
