Bruins vs. Oilers: Taylor vs. Tyler Headlines Important Matchup

The number one overall draft pick in last year's draft, Taylor Hall, will once again meet up with good friend, and number two overall draft pick Tyler Seguin.

The teams meet up, both coming off quite an impressive streak. Though the Oilers sit at a more impressive 9-3-2, while the Bruins haven't yet reached .500 (6-7-0), this game could prove to be more important than just another game.

Leading the Oilers this year is left winter Ryan Smyth, followed closely behind by rookie Ryan Nugent-Hopkins who already has twelve points this year--more than Hall at this point who sits at nine.

The Bruins hold three players with point streaks--Milan Lucic, Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron. All three have been huge parts in each of the last three wins, including a hat trick from Seguin earlier in the week.

The game will be aired live on NESN at 7p.m. at TG Garden in Boston, MA.
