Bruins Vs. Hurricanes: Boston Looks For Revenge As 'Canes Come To Town

The Boston Bruins are looking for their third win of the year and a bit of payback against a Carolina Hurricanes team that picked up their first win of the season against Boston last Wednesday (7:00 p.m., NESN/98.5)

The Boston Bruins (2-3-0) will look for some quick revenge Tuesday night as they welcome the revitalized Carolina Hurricanes (2-2-1) into the TD Garden at 7:00 p.m. (TV/Radio: NESN/98.5 The Sports Hub)

Not even one week ago, the Bruins were in Raleigh, allowing the Hurricanes to pick up their first win of the season despite goals from Tyler Seguin and Brad Marchand. Those two goals allowed represented a season-low for the Hurricanes' Cam Ward, who has given up a remarkable 11 scores in his three other games this year.

For their part, the defending Stanley Cup Champions got back on track with a rare shootout win against a strong Chicago Blackhawks team. Nathan Horton finally picked up his first goal of the 2011 campaign, and was assisted by Tyler Seguin (his fourth of the year) who iced the game with a winning shootout goal against Chicago goalie Corey Crawford.

For the Bruins to walk away tonight with a couple more points, they'll want to take better advantage of Carolina's porous defense than they did last week. Tuukka Rask will likely be starting in goal for Tuesday's game, and his 2010-11 season didn't exactly inspire confidence in low-scoring wins. Hopefully the B's will not be looking to help the 'Canes tie or even set a new season low once again.
