Today on Bruins Daily

After defeating the Carolina Hurricanes Monday night, the Boston Bruins have a quick turnaround as they travel to New York to face the Rangers for the first time since the B’s eliminated the Blueshirts from the Eastern Conference semifinals back in May.

Will the Black and Gold make it two in a row to close out this three-game road trip, or will the Rangers get a measure of revenge at Madison Square Garden? Be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates at @BruinsDaily and include #DailyLive in your tweets.

In case you missed it

Fellow Bruins Daily colleague Chris Chirichello chimed in twice in the last 24 hours. First, he names Brad Marchand as his player of the week and follows up earlier today with a post on Tuukka Rask bouncing back against the Hurricanes.

Know the enemy

It’s no secret that the Bruins had some turnover this off-season, but they’ve adjusted well in the early part of the season. The Rangers, on the other hand, are still working out some kinks under new head coach Alain Vigneault in his first year on Broadway.

Still, Vigneault carries a strong dislike for the Black and Gold after he guided the Vancouver Canucks to the Stanley Cup Final in 2011. And that bitterness is still visible in the bright lights of New York City.

“I don’t need to have played for New York to have a dislike for Boston,” Vigneault said after the Rangers’ morning skate.

At 10-10-0, the Rangers are still searching for some answers as they find themselves third in the lethargic Metropolitan Division. But they have some good news today as Rick Nash, who missed the last six weeks with a concussion, returns to the Blueshirts lineup tonight.

Despite the .500 record, New York is 7-3-0 in its last 10 and Nash’s return could add an extra spark against a Bruins squad playing their second of a back-to-back on the road.
