Boston hopes to keep its home points streak alive


Dec 22, 2022

The Bruins conclude their five-game homestand when they take on the Jets on Thursday night.

Boston is 17-0-2 at home heading into the matchup against Winnipeg, and the Black and Gold hope to continue their point streak at TD Garden.

The Bruins are coming off a thrilling 7-3 win over the Florida Panthers on Monday night, and the Jets are coming off a dominant 5-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators.

Craig Smith is expected back in the lineup after he was assigned to Providence on Tuesday. A.J. Greer and Jakub Zboril are the healthy scratches for the game.

Head coach Jim Montgomery did not name a starting goalie, but there is a guarantee someone will be between the pipes against the Jets.

Puck drop from TD Garden is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET on Thursday night. You can catch all the action on NESN, beginning with an hour of pregame coverage at 6 p.m.
