Following a successful weekend that helped catapult the Bruins into a wildcard position, Boston is set to begin their stretch of 54 games in just shy of 100 days left in the season. Boston has shuffled their forward lines to create more dynamic depth scoring, and after last weekend, it seems to be precisely what the Bruins needed to get their season back on track.
The Boston Bruins host the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday at 7 p.m. EST after Boston destroyed the Red Wings 5-1, while the Devils beat the Washington Capitals 4-3 in Overtime. The Bruins are 8th in the Eastern Conference with 36 shots per game and 2.8 goals.
The New Jersey Devils have scored 95 goals and are 9th in the Eastern Conference, averaging 2.9 goals per game.
