Last night the Bruins beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 and tied the NHL wins record of 62. Now their sights turned to Philadelphia tonight.

Earlier today, the Bruins announced they would be calling up Jack Ahcan, Brandon Bussi, Connor Carrick, Vinni Lettieri, and Oskar Steen from Providence on an emergency basis. This is obviously the result of the Bruins resting players prior to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. At the time of writing this article, there is no clear indication of which players will not dress this evening.

This is an opportunity for Ahcan, Bussi, and Steen to shine on the big stage while positioning themselves for a chance at a roster spot next season. The Flyers have been a subpar team so far this season; there will likely be plenty of opportunity for them to shine.

On the opposite end of the conversation, these players have been key pieces to the AHL Bruins being near the top of the league leading into the playoffs. Ahcan has tallied 31 points in 65 games, Steen has 31 points in 63 games, and Bussi has a 2.38 GAA and .925 SV% in 31 starts.

Oilers Game 22: Winnipeg Jets

Not the ideal way to win your third straight game, but they did it. Up until the last seven and a half minutes, when they blew a 4-2 lead, they were playing some pretty decent hockey. I don’t totally blame Stuart Skinner for the last two goals, but it makes the save percentage worse than […]
