Hey, there’s a game tonight and the Bruins don’t have to take on two teams at once!
Sadly, the Florida FancyCats had to be turned away from playing the Bruins due to Winter Cyclone Grayson deciding that Causeway Street having one ice rink on it wasn’t enough so it decided to make it one giant ice rink. It’s no matter, that game will be rescheduled.
Tonight the Bruins welcome another group of cyclones from Carolina into the TD Garden. This is the first meeting this season between the Canes and the Bruins. Currently, Carolina sits in the second Wild Card spot in the Eastern Conference while Boston is holding the second position in the Atlantic Division, tied for points with Toronto but with four games in hand.
Since Boston is playing a back-to-back leading into the bye week, there has been a divvying up of duties with regards to the goaltenders with Dobby in net tonight and Tuukka in tomorrow at the Penguins.
Bruce Cassidy says Anton Khudobin will be in net tonight against Carolina. Tuukka Rask will go tomorrow in Pittsburgh. #NHLBruins
