Morning Skate: Red Wings at Bruins Preview, How to Watch, Projected Lineups

Another afternoon match-up against Boston. It worked for us last time so...

Time: 1:00pm ET
Place: TD Garden (Gah-den)
Radio: 97.1 FM The Ticket, 1270 AM
Bruins blog: Stanley Cup of Chowder

The Wings are coming off a disappointing loss in New Jersey after many penalties and four really, really bad minutes in the third period. Disappointing in that it seemed possible to win, not the usual brand.

The Bruins managed to defeat Montreal in the battle of teams with multiple losses to the Wings, cementing the Habs as the Worst Team Ever. Pastrnak had a hatty in the game and Chara was fined $5k for cross-checking Brendan Gallagher in the face.

ICYMI the Wings played Boston at home last Sunday and defeated them soundly on national tv and there’s nothing they can do about it. Fabbri was injured in that game, but was avenged and is already back in action. That was, of course, the Bruins’ second loss to the Wings this season, and both times by two goals. The Wings and Bruins will have one more shot at each other on 3/24.

It’d be a real shame if the Wings went ahead and won the season series…

Key to the Game: Don’t give up a bunch of goals really fast. Or really slow. Just try not to give up goals and try not to take penalties. Easy peasy.
