Hockey Roundup: Monday Night Preview – Bruins Go For Ninth-Straight and Blues Go For 100 Points

Your daily shot of hockey to go with your coffee
Monday, March 17th, 2014

No picks from Friday but here are some quick highlights of the weekend:

-Canadiens overcame three-goal deficit in the third the down the rival Senators 5-4 in OT. The game-tier came with one second left in regulation

-Ben Bishop set Lightning franchise record: He recorded his 5th shutdown Saturday against the Devils

-Bruins extend their streak to seven with a big 5-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday. Jerome Iginla sniped twice, one of them being assisted by Berkshire alum Kevan Miller. Go Bears.

Thundercrew Coverage:

The Flyers played a home and home with the Penguins Saturday and Sunday. The Flyers won both games, 4-0 and 4-3 respectively, I have the coverage in my Flyers section.

The Devils hit the road down in Florida Friday and Saturday. On Friday, they fell to the Panthers 5-3 and were, as stated above, shutout Saturday in Tampa Bay, 3-0. Iceman will have a full recap up soon.

GAMES TONIGHT:

Four games tonight around the league: Wild @ Bruins at 7:30 (NBCSN), Canucks @ Lightning at 7:30, Jets @ Blues at 8, Coyotes @ Kings at 10:30. Bruins over Wild: Despite being a playoff team, Minnesota is horrible on the road. The Bruins have the most wins at home in the NHL. The Bruins have outscored their opponents 33-11 in their eight-game winning streak and only three over their last three games. Lightning over Canucks: Vancouver barely beat the Panthers yesterday. No chance they are beating the Lightning at home tonight. Blues over Jets: St. Louis will be the first team eclipse the 100-point mark tonight against the horrible defense of the Winnipeg Jets. Winnipeg has a decent offense but it won’t get by Ryan Miller and the St. Louis offense will blow out the Jets’ defense. Kings over Coyotes: Phoenix desperately needs to win to move into the second wild card spot. However, they have the second-lowest number of wins on the road. LA has hit a bump after their eight-game-streak having lost their two game, but Phoenix is a good time to bounce back against.

All home teams tonight, let’s go. #puck
