    Game Day Preview: Bruins at Jets

    Anthony Travalgia February 11, 2016

    The Bruins are coming off their worst loss in a long time where they were completely embarrassed at home Tuesday night against the LA Kings, 9-2. Milan Lucic made a successful return to TD Garden with a goal and an assist in the beat down.

    The Bruins enter play Thursday night with a one-point lead over the Penguins for the top wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Tonight kicks off a season-high six-game road trip for the Bruins.

    The Jets enter tonight dead last in the Central division and have won two in a row.

    Matchup to watch: Jacob Trouba vs. Bruins forwards

    After the Jets signed Dustin Byfuglien to a five-year $38 million contract, many started to begin to wonder what that meant for the rest of the Jets blue line. With the season just about lost and the Jets back into rebuilding mode, young defenseman Jacob Trouba may be on the block. If any team is in need of blue line help, it’s the Bruins.

    In their opening contest in Boston back in October, Trouba logged 21:09 of ice time where he was held pointless, but was a plus-three on a night that saw the Jets dominate the Bruins, 6-2.

    The Bruins have had some bad losses this season but none more embarrassing than the one suffered on home ice Tuesday night. As the Bruins embark on a season high six-game road trip, how the Bruins respond will be closely watched tonight. The road has been the Bruins bread and butter all season long and they hope to continue that trend as the Black and Gold continue to battle in the tight Eastern Conference playoff race.
