The Boston Bruins will be back in action tomorrow night at the New Jersey Devils as they will look to extend their winning streak to three games.
Torey Krug and Brad Marchand did not make the trip to New Jersey, but Ryan Spoonder did and could play for the first time in 14 games.
The biggest decision left for head coach Bruce Cassidy is who he will start in goal. Anton Khudobin has started in each of the last two games, both wins in Los Angeles and San Jose, and has earned a third straight start.
Cassidy did not confirm who is going to start tomorrow night, but it sounds like he’s got his mind made up.
“Do you go with the hot hand and leave your No. 1 sitting where he’s beginning to wonder what the hell is going on? That’s the decision,” said Cassidy, per NBC Sports Boston. “We need to keep them both in a good place, and not lose out on [Khudobin’s] good run while keeping Tuukka focused and confident in his game. That’s what we’re battling and I talk to Goalie Bob [Essensa] about it every day. We’ll make our decision [on Wednesday] and we hope it’s the right one.
“It’s a long year so no matter who we use there are a lot of starts. I don’t think Khudobin is going to go ice cold if he use Tuukka tomorrow, and I don’t think Tuukka is going to blow a gasket if we go with the hot hand. For me I don’t think it’s that big of a decision.”
