  • On the strength of mostly assists, Dylan Larkin ends up the point leader for Detroit.
  • Jimmy Howard is currently at a .908 on the year so far.

Quick Preview:

What a difference a few weeks does, huh?

The Bruins are currently 3rd in the Atlantic with all sorts of players coming back from injury and whose goaltenders are bouncing back. Things are looking up!

Things are....uh...not as good for the Red Wings. 11-13-6, nearly every player taking a step backwards, and almost all of their losses this year have been in a long, painful row.

Nothing much else to say about this one except that Detroit at least is playing games close as opposed to getting their heads smashed in like they did against Montreal (jesus...), so the Bruins can’t afford to stumble on the momentum they have right now with almost every other team in the Atlantic tripping over themselves. Can the Bruins continue Detroit’s death spiral? Tune in and find out!
