Game Day Thread: Flyers at Bruins

The Bruins are back from their four-game roadtrip for the first of a two-game homestand. After leaving the game early with an injury on Thursday night against the Predators, Tuukka Rask is expected to be back in net today. There was all sorts of confusion as to why he stayed out of the game: was it for a concussion protocol or a possible collarbone injury? Both? Neither? Who knows?

Todays opponents are the Phliadelphia Flyers. The last time these two teams met at the end of November, Philly took it in a shootout, 3-2. The Flyers are currently fifth in the Metropolitan Division with 50 points through 44 games. Were the playoffs to begin today, they would have the fifth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. This game will not be an easy one for the Bruins.
