Boston Bruins

Ondrej Kase will make his debut as a Bruins after he was sent by Anaheim for David Backes and a draft pick on Friday. On the same day, they squeaked past Calgary, 4-3, to be the first team to reach 90 points in the season. Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand, and David Pastrnak ganged up on Friday as they continue to run riot of every defense to keep the Boston Bruins at the mountaintop of the NHL.

Players to watch: David Pastrnak (GP 62, G 43, A 43, PTS 86), Brad Marchand (GP 62, G 24, A 53, PTS 77), Patrice Bergeron (GP 53, G 29, A 24, PTS 53).

Vancouver Canucks

Tyler Toffoli, Vancouver’s newest acquisition, made a good account of himself in his debut with the Canucks on Wednesday, although it resulted in a 4-3 shootout loss to Minnesota. Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller welcomed Tofolli in their line and will try to put him in a more comfortable position when they face the Bruins. Miller credited Tofolli in one of his goals in the match, setting him up perfectly as he reached his career-high in scoring. 

Players to watch: J.T. Miller (GP 60, G 24, A 35, PTS 59), Elias Pettersson (GP 59, G 24, A 34, PTS 58), Quinn Hughes (GP 59, G 8, A 39, PTS 47).
