The Boston Bruins will continue their road trip Wednesday night when they take on the Calgary Flames.
The B’s will have their work cut out for them, as the Flames are riding a red-hot 10-game winning streak. A win against the Bruins would mark the longest winning streak in Calgary franchise history.
Boston is playing good hockey at the right time as well, as it will try to extend its winning streak to four games Wednesday night at Scotiabank Saddledome. The Bruins also are expected to get back Ryan Spooner, who has missed the previous three after going through the concussion protocol.
The Bruins will give goaltender Tuukka Rask the night off, as Anton Khudobin is expected to get the nod between the pipes. After a slow start to the season, Khudobin has posted wins in his last three starts.
Here are the projected lineups for both teams.
