Bruins vs Sharks Preview: Will Bruins Show Some Bite Again?



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins enter tonight’s game with the San Jose Sharks mired in a three-game losing streak. While a game with the worst team in the NHL would usually be a welcome sight on the schedule to snap out of their funk, the Bruins know they won’t do that unless they become harder to play against again.

“A lot of it gets back to checking. I think we’ve just been an easy team to play against. Not just the last three games, but probably the last six, seven,” head coach Jim Montgomery said on Wednesday.

Can they do that tonight?
