The Boston Bruins are heading into this game after picking up a big win over the Dallas Stars. The win was one that the Bruins were somewhat expected to get as they have a better overall talent pool on the roster, but the Bruins were not expected to have the game so close that the Stars were very close to tying the game up and bringing home the win.
During the game the Bruins were able to score 2 goals. However, the Bruins only converted on 1 out of the 4 power plays the team ended up getting. The Bruins did end up getting a total of 29 shots on goal during the game.
The Coyotes are coming into the game here after a loss to the Anaheim Ducks to open their season. Normally, this would not be a major issue, but the Coyotes have a roster that has had quite a few improvements compared to what they have had in the past. What else helps the Coyotes out quite a bit is the fact that the team has a nice defense that can help control the games this year.
The Coyotes did not have any power play goals in their opening game of the year. However, the Coyotes ended up putting a total of 29 goals in the game on the net with only 1 of them slipping by the net minder. The Coyotes were able to face 33 shots in the game, but 2 of those shots ended up making it past the goalie for a score.
