Bruins Vs. Jets: B's Hope To Notch First Back-To-Back Wins In A Month

Consistency has to be key in order for the Bruins to take their first back-to-back wins since early January. However, they will have their challenges without Nathan Horton or Rich Peverley.

Back on January 10, the Bruins and the Jets met in Boston, where the B's managed to take a 5-3 win after falling to their Stanley Cup Final foe, the Vancouver Canucks.

Seems like forever ago, right?

That game against Winnipeg wasn't just the last time these two teams met, it was also the first of two consecutive wins for the Bruins. And it was also the last time that has happened since.

After defeating the Jets, the Bruins went on two days later to beat the Montreal Canadiens 2-1, and that would be the last time they saw back-to-back victories up to this point.

The Bruins most recent trend is winning one game in convincing fashion, only to fall on their face in the next. Granted, they have been without Nathan Horton for almost a month, but it doesn't explain all the inconsistencies they have been experiencing from game to game.

The puck drops at 8 p.m. and will be broadcast live on NESN and TSN and aired on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
