The Bruins will begin their four-game road trip in the building they won the 2011 Stanley Cup in as they take on the Vancouver Canucks tonight. They will look to build off the momentum from Drew Stafford’s late game heroics on Saturday to win their third straight game and get one step closer to a return to the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Ryan Spooner made the trip with the team and took part in today’s morning skate, but he has still not been cleared and will not play tonight. Austin Czarnik also took part in practice today, but he is not expected to play tonight either.

Tuukka Rask was not on the ice today, but he is expected to start and will be opposed by Ryan Miller.

Former Bruin Loui Eriksson is not expected to play tonight as he continues to nurse a leg injury. The Canucks still have a pair of players out with the mumps after the virus spread through their locker room.
