- Brad Marchand’s 2nd period goal and two tallies from David Pastrnak helped give the B’s a 5-2 win over Calgary last night.
- Both Marchand and Pastrnkl have at least 30 goals this season, with Marchand leading the NHL (for now) with 36 goals and 76 points.
- Ostensibly with Khudobin getting the nod in Calgary, it looks like Tuukka Rask will tend net in Edmonton tonight.
- It’s another matchup against former Bruin Milan Lucic, who has a goal and three assists in his last three games.
- Last time the B’s faced Edmonton, it was the game they honored the life of Milt Schmidt in Boston, but a Patrick Maroon hat trick gave the Oilers a 4-3 win. Expect a very different Bruins team to roll in tonight.
