Boston Bruins Notes

-This is the second game of a three-game season series between the Blue Jackets and the Bruins. The Bruins took the first game 4-0 back on Oct. 28. Linus Ullmark made 30 saves in his first of two shutouts this season.
-The Boston Bruins will look to avoid their first losing streak of the season after losing to the Los Angeles Kings 3-2 in a shootout on Thursday night. The Bruins still haven’t lost a game in regulation at home nor have they lost lost two straight on home ice.
-Boston Bruins veteran winger Brad Marchand snapped a four-game goalless streak on Thursday. Marchand now has nine goals and 13 assists in 21 games.
-With a goal in the loss on Thursday, Bruins winger Taylor Hall now has six goals and four assists in his last eight games.

Columbus Blue Jackets Notes:

-Since being activated off of injured reserve on Dec. 2, Blue Jackets winger Patrik Laine has six goals and three assists in eight games.

-Former Boston College star winger Johnny Gaudreau is tied for the team lead in goals with 10 lamplighters and leads the team in points with 31.

-Blue Jackets goalie Elvis Merzlikins is 4-8-0 with a 4.68 GAA and .864 save percentage. There has been increasing NHL trade chatter that he may be on his way out of Columbus by the March 3 NHL trade deadline.
