Bruins Vs. Islanders: Boston Looks For Third Straight Win

The Boston Bruins look for their third straight win Monday night against the New York Islanders.

The Boston Bruins will attempt to win their third straight game Monday night against the New York Islanders (7 p.m., VERSUS HD, RIS HD, NHLN-CA, TSN2, NESN HD).

The Bruins enter Monday night's affair on the heels of the team's most complete performance of the season Thursday against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Tyler Seguin scored his first career hat trick, Tim Thomas notched 24 saves to register his first shutout of the season and Milan Lucic added two goals and an assist in Boston's 7-0 win against the Northeast Division-leading Maple Leafs.

New York also enters the game with momentum after beating the Washington Capitals 5-3 on Thursday, snapping a six-game losing skid. The Islanders are led by John Tavares (12 points) and P.A. Parenteau (11 points).

Boston will be without the services of forward Rich Peverley, who is suffering from a minor undisclosed injury that kept him from participating in the team's last few practices. Peverley did skate during Boston's victory against Toronto, contributing an assist.

"He needs a few more days," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "He played the last game but it's not getting better, so we're going to allow him to take a few more days."
