The Boston Bruins tonight are in Raleigh, North Carolina to play the Carolina Hurricanes. The Bruins are winless in three attempts against the 'Canes and are looking to avoid a season sweep. The Bruins are in 8th place with 64 points, but do have the least number of games played in the league. With a win the Bruins could jump over the struggling Philadelphia Flyers into 7th place.
The Hurrricanes will be without Rod Brind'amour, who injured his leg last week, and their second highest scorer Whitney. The Bruins will probably be without Schaefer and the usual injured players (BErgeron, Fernandez, Alberts). According to FLuto Shinzawa, Julien mixed up the lines a little bit:
Reich (or Nokelainen if his flu subsides)-Sobotka-Thornton
The Bruins are now 1-0-1 on this five game road trip and need to finally take a win from Cam Ward and the Hurricanes. Go Bruins!
