Bruins vs Coyotes Preview: Upstart Coyotes Come To Boston



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins will try to bounce back from a flat performance on Thursday night when they host the Arizona Coyotes in a Saturday afternoon matinee at TD Garden.

The Bruins didn’t have it in a 3-1 loss to the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday night, as they were out-shot 19-4 in the first period and seemed to be dragging the rest of the way. They must find it from the opening faceoff and for the full 60 minutes against an upstart Coyotes team. While the Coyotes are coming off a 4-1 loss on Thursday at home to the Philadelphia Flyers, they have been one of the NHL’s most pleasant surprises this season.

Before the loss on Thursday, the Sabres had beaten the last five Stanley Cup champions consecutively. They enter today’s tilt with the Bruins in the top wild card slot in the Western Conference.
