vs. Los Angeles Kings (29-30-10)
Other Previews:
  • HubHockey: "Backing him up is Erik Ersberg (8-10-5) whom I guess has decided to one up Manny Fernandez and not record a win since December 13th"
  • Stanley Cup of Chowder: "If I had the last name Quick, I don't think I would chose a college that calls its athletic teams the Minutemen."
  • The Bear Cave: "The last meeting on Causeway Street was back on January 12, 2006, when Mathieu Garon and the Kings blanked Boston 6-0. The Bruins' last home win over the Kings was also a shutout, as Byron Dafoe and John Grahame combined for a 5-0 victory on January 10, 2002."
  • Matt Kalman: "This Kings team plays with such structure and grit that it can beat anyone. Think of them as the hard-working New York Islanders, but with talent."
  • NESN First Shift: "Lately the Bruins penalty kill, (ranked 13th with an 82.2 percent success rate) has been a tired bunch, allowing opponents to go 10-of-38 (26.3 percent) in the last nine games."
