It’s going to be a tough one Thursday night.
The Boston Bruins welcome the Winnipeg Jets to TD Garden as the two teams clash for the first time this season. Boston is coming off of one of its most complete performances of the season in a 6-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday. Winnipeg also enters the contest after winning its last game, taking down the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday in a shootout.
One of the biggest keys to Thursday’s game for the B’s is slowing down the Jets’ odd-man rush. Winnipeg currently sits in third place in the NHL at 4.52 rushes per game, while Boston is 29th with just 3.12.
