Boston Bruins 26 pts (11-8-4)
Philadelphia Flyers 23 pts (8-10-7)
1 p.m. ET
Wells Fargo Center – Philadelphia, PA
The Boston Bruins will look to keep the Philadelphia Flyers losing streak alive and hand them their 10th straight loss during a matinee game Saturday in Philly.
While it could easily be a trap game for the B's, luckily it looks like they should have a couple of bodies back for this afternoon's game.
Head coach Bruce Cassidy said that Anders Bjork should make his return to the lineup while David Krejci will be a game time decision depending on how he feels when he wakes up.
Cassidy has also decided to go with Tuukka Rask against the Flyers while Anton Khudobin will get the start Monday in Nashville.
As mentioned the Flyers are struggling, going 0-4-5 in their past nine games. A 10th straight loss will match their longest in franchise history and despite the loses, Cassidy is aware the team is having no trouble putting the puck in the net.
"I know that their top line is doing a lot of their scoring, they've got a young defense that is playing well…try to keep that top line off the scoresheet which is a tall [task]," said Cassidy.
Here's a look at this afternoon's projected lineup, presuming that both Krejci and Bjork play.

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Anders Bjork
Danton Heinen - David Krejci - David Pastrnak
