Game Notes:

  • Brad Marchand’s 3rd period hat trick against Vancouver propelled the B’s to a 6-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks
  • The Flames are winners of 10 straight games, the hottest team in the NHL right now.
  • Confirmed yesterday, Anton Khudobin will be in net for the Bruins, facing his tallest task of the season, far and away.
  • It’s possible that Ryan Spooner could make his way back into the lineup, but it appears to be closer to a game time decision.
  • With a Habs loss to Chicago, the Panthers smashing Toronto, and Tampa Bay edging out Ottawa in OT, the Bruins have every bit of say in where they end up in the standings still.
