Including Saturday’s matchup against the Capitals, the Bruins have four games in six days. They’ve reached a very difficult part of their schedule where they only have one two-day break left in late March.
This week, the B’s face the Caps, Penguins, Jets and Senators. Boston lost a three-goal lead to Washington on March 5, and the Capitals eventually beat them in overtime. The Bruins suffered a similar fate to the Penguins on Tuesday, losing 3-2. Boston takes on Pittsburgh again on Sunday, and even without Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins are still a tough matchup.
The Bruins will go for a season sweep of the Jets on Tuesday in Winnipeg, and then they travel to Ottawa, where they’ve won 10 straight, to take on the Senators. Check out what to expect from the Bruins this week in the video above.
