The Bruins are set to take on the Philadelphia Flyers tonight coming off a big win against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday afternoon when the two teams meet for the first time this season. The Flyers sit just one point below the Bruins in the standings.
The Flyers are also coming off a win against Calgary on Sunday, after losing the previous two games. They are ranked last in the league in defense.
The Bruins will play without Zdeno Chara and John-Michael Liles, both due to injury.

What To Watch For
Bruins need to continue to produce offensively if they want to win tonight. The Bruins have had no lack of shots on net, just no production coming from the shots taken. In Sunday’s game, three of the four lines produced a goal, including the fourth line which has needed to step up recently.
Pastrnak leads the Bruins with goals at 13 on the season, second in the league.
The Flyer’s Giroux leads the league with power-play points, so the Bruins need to stay disciplined to avoid giving the Flyers any advantages. Flyers are 6-5-2 at home this year. The Bruins are 7-4 on the road.
Puck drops at 7:30 in Philly.
