Games 4 & 5 of the 2010-11 NHL season for the Boston Bruins will be their first real test on how they shape-up against the top teams of the Eastern Conference.
Tonight, in their first of two home-and-home games, the B’s will face last year’s President’s Trophy-winning team, the Washington Capitals at the Verizon Center at 7:00 p.m.
A few notes heading into tonight’s game.
You have no reason to be nervous with Neuvirth!
While many expected Michal Neuvirth to strongly compete for the starting role with Semyon Varlamov, few figured he would dominate as thoroughly as he had so far this season.
Not only has Neuvirth started every game this season for the Washington Capitals, including a back-to-back tilt in the Capitals first two games of the season, but he has been downright dominant in doing so.
