The Basics:

Who: Boston Bruins (4-4-0, 8 pts) at Florida Panthers (4-4-1, 9 pts)

Where: BB&T Center, Sunrise, Florida

When: 7:30 pm

Watch: NESN, Fox Sports Florida

Listen: 98.5 The Sports Hub

Game Notes:

  • The Bruins are still without David Pastrnak (suspension -- eligible to return Thursday) and David Backes (injury).
  • Matt Beleskey, Jimmy Hayes and Torey Krug have combined for 0 points through the opening 8 games. Secondary scoring has been sparse, to say the least. David Krejci, 3 assists, and Ryan Spooner, 1 goal and 1 assist, need to start producing if Boston looks to find some consistency.
  • Florida’s leading scorers are former Connecticut Whale great Jonathan Marchessault (6-5-11) and Colton Sceviour (5-2-7). I know, I was stunned too.
  • Former Bruins legend Shawn Thornton has only appeared in 1 game for Florida this season. He scored 4 goals and fought Zeus in a fight that was so mind-blowing it is unavailable to watch on the internet.
