With a 12-3-5 record and 29 points overall, this season is shaping up to be one for the record books for the Boston Bruins. The Bruins travel to New Jersey to battle a struggling Devils team, but can ill afford to get complacent. The Bruins defeated the Devils by a score of 3-0 earlier in the year.

Tuukka Rusk has been outstanding in goal for the Bruins and is 8-2-2 on the year with a 2.14 GAA.
With a 7-8-4 record and 18 total points the rebuild has thus far been slow and painful for the New Jersey Devils. The Devils play host to the Boston Bruins and are hoping to pull off the upset.
