Nashville Predators

The Predators were caught in an off night by the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday. Nashville looked to continue riding its scorching win streak, but the visiting Sabres went out to spoil their intentions. Team captain Roman Josi blamed the Predators’ slow start to the loss, implying that the team should not have the same kind of performance, otherwise winning would be tough. Calling their showing as “flat,” Josi reiterated that they have to be at their best, especially with the Bruins next in their assignment. Nashville continues to rule the Western Conference despite the loss, chalking up 50 points in 38 games. 

Players to watch: R. Josi D (G 12, A 26, PTS 38), M. Duchene C (G 17, A 17, PTS 34), M. Granlund C (G 5, A 28, PTS 33).

Boston Bruins

The Bruins are rolling. Boston notched four wins in a row after escaping the Flyers on Thursday via a 3-2 win, which is also their seventh win in the last eight games. It was an emotional night for the Bruins given that it was also the first game for veteran Tuukka Rask since June where he underwent an offseason hip surgery. Rask, who signed a one-year deal as a free agent in the offseason, made sure to make his presence felt in his return, stopping 25 shots to contribute to the win. And as the team sets its sights on keeping the streak alive, home fans can expect the Bruins to launch fireworks in the TD Garden this weekend. 

Players to watch: B. Marchand LW (G 19, A 21, PTS 40), D. Pastrnak RW (G 16, A 14, PTS 30), P. Bergeron C (G 11, A 17, PTS 28).
