When the March playoff push came around last season, the snow was mounted high and it seemed like every game night was greeted with snow flurries. Perhaps the change in New England weather and the mini “noreaster” are all the Bruins need to get the puck sliding in the right direction.
The Boston Bruins have been struggling as of late. With a road trip of mixed success behind them and a loss at home against Ottawa on Tuesday, the Bruins will look to turn things around tonight against the New Jersey Devils. The Bruins aren’t the only ones looking to turn tonight’s game into a win. The Devils are coming off a 3 game losing streak with losses to Tampa Bay, Vancouver and the eastern conference leading New York Rangers. Boston sits in the second spot (77 pts) while the Devils are in 7th (74 pts).
This morning Johnny Boychuk took the ice and skated with him teammates after suffering a concussion this past Saturday. Although the defenseman is feeling better, Coach Claude Julien confirmed that Boychuk will not be skating in tonight’s contest. A defenseman that will be in the line up this evening and wearing the black and gold sweater for the first time; Greg Zanon. Acquired from Minnesota on Monday during the NHL trade deadline, Zanon was a scratch against Ottawa on Tuesday. The 5’11” Burnaby, British Columbia native is excited to be in Boston and ready to play tonight. Boston native Mike Mottau will be a scratch for the Bruins.
