The Boston Bruins will be in Florida against the Panthers on Thursday before heading toRaleigh Friday night to take the ice against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Boston will be looking to rebound from a 4-2 loss against the New York Islanders at home on Tuesday. Carolina will be in Buffalo on Thursday night after a 2-1 win in a shootout against the Sabres on the 17th.
The Boston Bruins will look to get things back on track after falling 2-4 to the Islanders. The Bruins were held scoreless throughout the first two periods and started the third down 3-0.
Anton Blidh was able to put the puck in the net for the first time of the year at 3:04 in the third and Dominic Moore was able to score his 8th goal of the season at 7:12. That would be all Boston was able to come up with as the game came to an end.
The Bruins will enter Thursday’s matchup ranked 25th in the league in scoring with an average of 2.3 goals per game. They have had some issues on the power play this year with a conversion percentage of just 12.7.
On defense, Boston is currently 8th in goals against, holding their opponents to an average of just 2.4 goals per night. They have been solid defending the net while skating a man down, only giving up a goal 13.4 percent of the time.
Carolina will be on the ice in Buffalo on Thursday looking for their second win in a row. They haven’t been on the ice since December 17th due to a game that was postponed last Monday against the Detroit Red Wings.
On the 17th, the Hurricanes were able to come up with a 2-1 win against the Sabres in a shootout. Joakim Nordstrom was able to lite up the lantern at 14:04 in the first period.
After a scoreless overtime period, both Lee Stempniak and Sebastian Aho were able to find the net in the shootout to deliver the win for the Hurricanes.
Carolina has been able to put the puck in the net for an average of 2.6 goals per game, good for 16th in the league. They have been sharp on the power play this season, scoring on 21.7 percent of their opportunities.
On defense, the Hurricanes have been allowing an average of 2.7 goals per night, but they are the best the NHL has to offer on the penalty kill, only giving up a goal 8.7 percent of the time.

They will be ready for some rest after playing in Buffalo on Thursday, but I think they will still be able to do enough with the puck on offense to come with a win at home.
