Boston Bruins Notes
–Jakub Lauko (upper body) is out for Tuesday night’s game against the Predators and is day-to-day after going down late in Sunday’s win over Carolina. On the good news side of things, Nick Foligno (lower body) and Taylor Hall (lower body) both returned for Tuesday’s morning skate at Warrior Ice Arena with no-contact jerseys.
-The Bruins have won seven games in a row and can clinch the President’s Trophy in March with a win of any kind and a little help from other teams in today’s slate of NHL games.
-Boston Bruins right wing David Pastrnak hit 50 goals for the first time in his NHL career with a pair of goals in Sunday’s win over the Hurricanes and has a shot at hitting 60 goals with a few week’s worth of games still on the calendar.
-Linus Ullmark is getting the start between the pipes for the Black and Gold and is capping off a month of March where he went 5-1-0 with a 2.17 goals against average and .929 save percentage for the Boston Bruins.
Nashville Predators Notes
-The Predators have recalled Michael McCarron and defenseman Kevin Gravel from AHL Milwaukee ahead of Tuesday night’s game in Boston.
-The Boston Bruins will be looking to finish off the regular season sweep of the Predators after dumping them by a 5-0 score at Bridgestone Arena back in February.
-Predators coach John Hynes opened up his comments ahead of Tuesday night’s game with some words on the unspeakable tragedy of another school shooting, this time in the Nashville area at the Covenant School.
-Matt Duchene was injured in a game over the weekend and is week-to-week with an upper body injury, necessitating some of the callups to Boston.
