After an embarrassing 4-2 loss to Winnipeg, David Krejci and the Boston Bruins (35-19-2) look to find some much needed offense against the slumping Minnesota Wild (25-24-9) at the XCEL Energy Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota at 3:30 p.m. (TV/Radio: NBC/98.5-FM).
Event: Boston Bruins vs. Minnesota Wild
Date/Time: Sunday, February 19, 2012 - 3:30 p.m. EST.
Location: XCEL Energy Center (18,064)
Broadcast Info: Sunday's game between the Bruins and the Wild will be broadcast live on NBC. The game can also be heard on 98.5 The Sports Hub, with Dave Goucher providing play-by-play, and Bob Beers providing analysis.
Last Time Out: Boston lost a tough 4-2 decision at Winnipeg on Friday, while Minnesota was shut out at St. Louis yesterday.
Storyline: The Wild were the hottest team in the league out of the gate, but have cooled considerably of late, and are not even in the top eight in the Western Conference anymore. Meanwhile, Boston has been trading wins and losses almost every time out since early January.
Players To Watch: David Krejci is due for a big game after being held silent over the past two weeks.
Prediction: A tired opponent should give the Bruins the chance to get two easy points today, but the Black and Gold haven't exactly been the best early in games when they need to in order to take advantage of tired opponents.
