Bruins' schedule gets busy, with Senators up first

BOSTON -- The condensed schedule will finally catch up the Boston Bruins starting Thursday night, when they host the Ottawa Senators.

To date the Bruins have played the fewest games in the NHL with 16 (they're 12-2-2). After putting their season-high four-game winning streak on the line against the Senators, they'll play 17 games in March.

"I think rest is definitely going to be a big thing, making sure you're not too active away from the rink," forward Chris Bourque said after the Bruins' morning skate at TD Garden, "kind of taking it easy, whereas in a regular schedule you might go out with the family, hang out, go to the mall or something or go for a walk. You'll spend a lot more time on the couch, that kind of stuff. Just getting the proper rest and hydration all that sort of stuff is going to be key, I think."

Here's what the Bruins' lineup should look like vs. the Senators:

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
