Here’s your Boston Hockey Now Boston Bruins Game Day Preview:

Boston Bruins (44-20-5, 93 pts) vs Detroit Red Wings(26-34-9, 61 pts)

TIME: 7:30 PM ET

TV: NESN, BSDET, SN

The Boston Bruins play the tail end of a back-to-back against the Red Wings at Little Caesar’s Arena in Detroit Tuesday night. The Bruins are coming off a 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets Monday night in Columbus and have now won three straight games after losing 6-4 to the Toronto Maple Leafs a week ago.

The Red Wings come into the final tilt of the season with the Bruins on a two-game skid and are 2-6-2 in their last ten games. This is the first game of a four-game homestand for the Wings.

Boston Bruins netminder Jeremy Swayman gets the start after Linus Ullmark stopped 20 of 22 Blue Jackets shots in the win over the Blue Jackets Monday. Swayman is 20-9-3 with a 2.23 GAA and .920 save percentage.

Alex Ndeljkovic is expected to start for the Red Wings. Nedeljkovic is 17-21-8 with a 3.31 GAA and .900 save percentage.

Betting: The Boston Bruins are heavy favorites on the money line at -200 but you can get good value on the puck line (-1.5) at +125. With David Pastrnak and Trent Frederic out and the Red Wings not exactly an offensive powerhouse, the under 6.5 (-125) is the play.

Prediction: Bruins 2 Red Wings 1 (SO)

Boston Bruins Notes

-Boston Bruins wingers David Pastrnak (undisclosed), and Trent Frederic will miss tonight’s game in Detroit after leaving the game Monday early.
