Bruins Hope To Continue Dominance Over Coyotes

Published December 7, 2017 at 12:50

The Bruins will look to get back into the win column as they go for the season sweep of the Arizona Coyotes tonight. 

The Bruins beat the Coyotes 6-2 in Arizona back in early October with goals from Zdeno Chara, Brad Marchand, Jake DeBrusk, David Pastrnak, Anders Bjork and Tim Schaller.  Anton Khudobin made 29 saves in the victory.

Khudobin will not be in the lineup for the rematch as Tuukka Rask will get the start tonight.

Speaking of not being in the lineup, Ryan Spooner will be out of action with a lower-body injury.  Jake DeBrusk will return to the lineup, so we should expect to see Spooner to be placed on injured reserve at some point this afternoon.

Torey Krug, who missed practice on Wednesday is also good to go for tonight's contest.

The Bruins have been dominate over the Coyotes/Winnipeg Jets with a 48-20-7-1 all-time record against them.  The Bruins are 26-6-4-1 in 37 games in Boston and have 156-104 scoring advantage in those games. 

The Coyotes come into tonight's game with 19 points, the fewest in the Western Conference.
