The Bruins are in Edmonton tonight
The Bruins face the Edmonton McDavids tonight, at Rogers Place. The Oilers have just come off a convincing win on Sunday afternoon, but that follows a 6-game slide.
RNH – a.k.a. “The NUUUUUUGE!” is injured with cracked ribs, and will not be appearing tonight.
Sorry, wrong ‘Nuuge’, it’s THIS ONE:
Also out is Andrej Sekera, and possibly Al Montoya – who had a recent head injury.
The Bruins had been working an impressive points streak throughout December & January, but have been a bit more mortal lately, with a demoralizing loss to Vancouver prior to the win vs the Flames.
The Bruins came off of a good win in Calgary last night — a close game in which Tuukka Rask had an excellent performance. So naturally, we will see Glorious Goaltender Khudobin tonight. (it is the 2nd night of a back-to-back, after all). Our top forward line of Marchand/Bergeron/Pastrnak were the bringers of points last night. Hopefully more points are available tonight. Also seemingly available is defenseman Kevan Miller. Is this the day returns to the lineup? Or do we ride the Grizz a little longer?
Let’s do some lines…
