- Columbus is riding a 12-game winning streak, giving them a league-high 50 points in just 32 games.
- Despite the best record in the NHL, Columbus is averaging a measly 14,281 fans at the gates. Should move to #Believeland IMO.
- Boston has won both meetings against Columbus, a come from behind 6-3 victory in Ohio on opening night and a 5-2 thrashing at TD Garden on November 10.
- The Bruins are 1-6-1 without Tuukka Rask between the pipes this season. Which, as you may already know, isn’t good.
- Boston ranks 3rd in shots for per game (33.7), yet sit 25th in goals per game (2.31). Expect the goals to start coming — we hope — as Patrice Bergeron looks to regain his scoring touch (just 5 goals in 33 games) and youngster Frank Vatrano looks to spark the offense.
