Berkshire Bank Hockey Night In New England: Projected Bruins-Red Wings Lines, Pairings

The Boston Bruins will look to win their fourth straight game Saturday afternoon at TD Garden.

The Bruins will host the Detroit Red Wings, who are looking for their first victory of the 2018-19 season. Boston has won three in a row after dropping its season opener against the Washington Capitals.

Tuukka Rask will get the start in net, his third of the season. Backup netminder Jaroslav Halak, who has looked impressive in the early going, will begin the game on the bench.
