In a game from NHL, we will see Boston Bruins at Philadelphia Flyers.
Boston fell to Montreal in overtime fashion last time out. They were trailing for the whole game but managed to tie the game in the third period. Tuukka Rask had his first loss in his last 6 games but he will most likely be replaced by Jaroslav Halak on Wednesday. Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand have some injury problems but they are expected to start on Wednesday.
The Philadelphia Flyers, on the other side, are coming off a 7-4 win over Minnesota Wild at home. The team showed great skills on offense but there is a lot still to be desired on defense. They will certainly be hoping to outshoot their opponents once again. The Flyers tend to start relatively fast and they almost always score the first goal of the games they play(22 out of 29 times).
The Boston Bruins are by far the better side but the victory in this game won’t come easy at all. They will want to bounce back with another impressive performance but their defense will need to be at its best if it is to keep this high-powered offense relatively quiet.
