The Bruins look for their second win in as many nights as they return home from Philadelphia to battle the Ducks at the TD Garden.
The Anaheim Ducks head into Boston on Tuesday night looking to snap out of their offensive scoring slump and win their third game in a row but they know they’ll be in tough against a Bruins side that is climbing up the Eastern Conference standings. The Ducks head into tonight’s game sitting in fifth place in the Pacific division but are only two points back of the third place Coyotes are playing some of their best hockey of the season as they are on a 6-3-1 stretch that has them back in playoff contention. The Ducks still have the league’s worst offense and will likely finish with that claim thanks to a very slow start to the year but with their goaltending and defense they don’t have to score a lot to win games.

The Bruins got away with one on the road last night against the Philadelphia Flyers as they held on for a 3-2 victory and now sit just a single point back of the Red Wings for second place in the Atlantic division. Boston continue to impress on the road and as winners of two in a row they will look to claim their third straight but need to improve their play at home as they are one of the league’s worst when comparing home and away stats. Boston is in a good position here but the Ducks are coming in and with this being a back to back for Boston and both teams having trouble scoring this one looks like it will be an under all the way.
