The Boston Bruins will look to push their winning streak to six games in an Eastern Conference matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden on Wednesday night.

Boston’s currently amid a scheduling quirk that will keep them at home for 12-of-14 games, but this is the last home game before the two-game roadie that will split things up. The Bruins’ current process is working, but head coach Jim Montgomery still has a few changes on the docket.

Montgomery announced Matthew Poitras and Parker Wotherspoon would exit the lineup, with Oskar Steen and Kevin Shattenkirk returning following short absences. Linus Ullmark likely will return to net, with Jeremy Swayman making the start in Monday night’s victory.

Spencer Jones is expected to make his first start for the Hurricanes on Wednesday, as he was acquired earlier this week off waivers.
