What to Watch For

The Bruins showed their offensive strength on Wednesday night’s game, scoring 4 times in the 1st period alone. With players like David Krejci finally finding his game, this team has the potential to be an extremely dangerous offensive team. With his 2 goals against the Red Wings, Brad Marchand hit the 70 pt mark on the season, and is standing in 2nd place for goals, trailing only Crosby.

The Flyers are in a serious race for the Wildcard spot after their lose to the Leafs Thursday. Today’s game is a must win if they want to have any chance at the playoffs this year. The Flyers have out shot their opponents in 11 of their last 13 games, but only have won 5 of those games.

Both Spooner and Schaller will not be in the line up due to injury.

Puck drops at 1 pm in Boston.
