Game notes

  • The Bruins and the Red Wings play for the second time in a week, this time in the Motor City. The B’s beat the Wings 4-1 at TD Garden last Saturday.
  • Since then, the Wings have been up and down: they beat the Islanders, 4-3 in OT, on Monday before losing to the Panthers, 2-0, on Thursday.
  • The Wings have alternated goalies for most of the young season, and James Reimer played in the Florida game — this means the B’s are likely to see Ville Husso again.
  • The Bruins plan to ice the same team as Thursday night against Toronto, aside from a likely change in goal. This means we will get to see Lohreimania on the road for the first time. GIDDY UP.
  • The Wings have a strong offense, with the league’s 5th-ranked GF/G and 6th-ranked power play. The B’s won the “defense vs. offense” battle last week. We’ll see who wins tonight!

See ya tonight!
