Coming off a Sunday win against Buffalo, along with a major trade, the Arizona Coyotes head to Boston to take on the Bruins.
Boston, with wins in six of the last seven games, will look to continue the trend of wins against an Arizona team who’s personnel has gotten that much worse after Sunday.
Arizona’s season was lost regardless of Sunday’s trade, but getting rid of center Martin Hanzal to Minnesota all but solidifies the end of this season for the Coyotes. Arizona got picks and return and at this point will be vying for the top pick in the 2017 draft.
The Coyotes, losing Hanzal, lose a 16 goal and 10 assist center, a guy who was important for the team. With him gone, Arizona loses an important goal-scorer and the team isn’t exactly filled with them.
Captain Shane Doan has already expressed his displeasure with this trade and he’ll be called upon for eve more offense than he was already contributing. Doan has five goals and 15 assists this season, but just a single assist in his last five games.
Right wing Radim Vrbata will need to contribute even more as well. He has 14 goals and 30 assists on the year, including three goals and three assists in his last five games.
Boston has been a great team under new head coach Bruce Cassidy. The team is 5-1-0 since he took over for Claude Julien after he was fired and the Bruins have looked rejuvenated.
The team has been playing some great hockey and scoring the puck much better. Left wing Brad Marchand has played solid hockey all year and continues to do so. He has 26 goals and 35 assists on the season, including two goals and two assists in his last five games.
He has been helped out by right wing David Pastrnak. Pastrnak has 26 goals and 23 assists this year.
Over his last five, he has a pair of goals and an assist.
Tuukka Rask should get the start in goal on Tuesday night and he has looked even better since Bruce Cassidy took over. Rask is 28-14-4 on the year with a .912 save percentage and a 2.28 goals against average.
He is 3-1-0 under Cassidy with one shutout.
