Bruins Vs. Flames: B's Face Back-To-Back Game Challenge

It'll be a quick turnaround for the Bruins after playing last night in New Jersey, but after scoring another six goals, people are beginning to think there are few who can stop them.

Tonight's matchup at TD Garden isn't going to be an easy one for either team. The Bruins came in last night after their 6-1 ousting of the New Jersey Devils and, 24 hours later, will play against the Calgary Flames.

But the Flames have been everything but hot. They have lost their last four games, including the most recent 3-1 loss against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday. And, to add even more bad news, Rene Bourque was suspended for five games after delivering an elbow to Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom's head on Wednesday.

The Bruins will take advantage of the Flames' misfortunes, especially with the run they have been on. Though they lost their last game of 2011 to the Dallas Stars, they rebounded last night and came up with six goals, including two goals from Patrice Bergeron.

Dennis Seidenberg and David Krejci extended their point streaks last night and have points in their last four and six games respectively.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask will most likely be in net for the Bruins and is running on his own four-game win streak and boasting a league best .945 save percentage.

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