Bruins @ Coyotes Preview: Quick Turnaround For Bruins

Published

on

Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins continue their four-game road trip out west tonight as they play an Arizona Coyotes at the 4,600-capacity Mullett Arena.

The Bruins themselves are coming off a 4-3 shootout loss in a thrilling game against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver on Monday night. There won’t be any rest for the weary and a Bruins team that likely got into Tempe, Arizona, well past midnight (MT) last night. While the Bruins did a solid job of going toe-to-toe with a legit Stanley Cup contender on Monday night, they did struggle to keep up with the speed and tenacity of the Avalanche, and they will play a fast team again in the Coyotes on Tuesday night.

The Bruins beat the Coyotes 5-3 on Dec. 9 in Boston, but they will now face a hungry Coyotes team looking to snap a three-game losing streak and trying to get back into the final wild-card slot in the Western Conference. With the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Vegas Golden Knights, on the horizon this Thursday in Las Vegas, to say this could be a trap game would be an understatement.

Bost0n Bruins Notes

David Pastrnak leads the Bruins in goals (24), assists (32), and points with 56 in 37 games.

-Goalie Linus Ullmark is expected to get the start between the pipes for the Bruins. Ullmark is 13-5-2 with a 2.74 GAA and a .917 save percentage.

-Defenseman Brandon Carlo’s status is up in the air after he suffered an upper-body injury in the second period on Monday night. Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery is expected to give an update on Carlo when he addresses the media at 5:40 p.m. MT. Forward James van Riemsdyk (undisclosed, day-to-day) is also questionable, while defenseman Derek Forbort (lower-body, LTIR) and winger Milan Lucic (NHL/NHLPA Players Assistance Program) are out.
