Bruins Vs. Capitals: B's Inch Closer to Home-Ice Advantage

The Capitals are fighting for a playoff spot, while the Bruins are going for their fourth straight win tonight with just six games left to go in the season. Play kicks off at 7 p.m. at the TD Garden.

The Bruins have just three regular season home games left this year, and they have some unfinished business in this next game against the Washington Capitals tonight at TD Garden in Boston.

The Capitals are still without one of their top forwards Nicklas Backstrom, but the alternate captain will be traveling with the team, which is a sure sign he could be back soon, though team officials have said he won't be back to play against the Bruins.

However, he wasn't there the last time these two teams met either.

Back on March 10, the Capitals took a 4-3 win away from the Bruins in front of their home crowd and have won two of the three total meetings this season.

Now, with just six games remaining, and the momentum building at the right time for the B's, tonight's game should be another one for the books, with Washington fighting for a playoff spot--a situation they haven't come across too often the past couple of years.

The Bruins third line of Benoit Pouliot, Chris Kelly and Brian Rolston is peaking right now, and are producing at a solid level. Rolston has a seven-game point streak heading into tonight, and his linemates are doing equally as well.

The puck drops at 7 p.m. and the game will be broadcast live on NESN and the NHL Network and aired on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
