With only 22 points in 19 games, the Boston Bruins are short of a playoff spot by a point and only 3 teams scored less goals than the B's in the East. Boston relied heavily on Tuukka Rask so far this season to win games. The Finnish goaltender is posting a 1.57 Goals Against Average and a 0.942 save percentage, recording every wins his team got so far this season.
Hopefully, David Pastrnak is back on track. After missing his team last 3 games, Pastrnak will be back tonight against the Ottawa Senators on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. The #88 has been the most consistent player for the Bruins alongside Brad Marchand, he scored 10 goals and added 4 assists in 14 games while Marchand has 17 points in 19 games. Their centerman, Patrice Bergeron is still struggling offensively, notching only 5 points in 16 games so far this season.
While the Bruins can count on Pastrnak's return tonight, they will be held without Zdeno Chara on the blueline.
