The Boston Bruins will look to continue their winning ways then they play the Detroit Red Wings at TD Garden on Saturday.
Led by the impressive play of their young players and a resurgent Tuukka Rask, the B’s have won three in a row and have ascended to seventh in the Eastern Conference. The Red Wings, meanwhile, have struggled this season, but enter Saturday’s contest having won two of their last three games.
Boston once again is expected to be without the services of center David Krejci, but could get help on the blue from defenseman Adam McQuaid, who’s missed the past two months with a broken leg.
Rask will start in net for the Bruins, with Jimmy Howard between the pipes for Detroit.
Here are the projected lineups for Saturday’s Red Wings vs. Bruins game:
