By Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent / At the Rink blog

BOSTON – The Bruins will put their 10-game winning streak on the line today against Detroit with Tuukka Rask in goal at TD Garden.
   
Jimmy Howard will start for Detroit, which has won three in a row.
   
The Bruins will also be looking to avenge a home-and-home sweep by the Red Wings in February.

Here is the Bruins’ projected lineup based on pre-game warm-ups:

Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Tyler Seguin
Benoit Pouliot - Chris Kelly - Rich Peverley
Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara - Johnny Boychuk
Dennis Seidenberg - Joe Corvo
Andrew Ference - Adam McQuaid

Here is the Red Wings’ lineup based on pre-game warm-ups:

Johan Franzen - Pavel Datsyuk - Todd Bertuzzi
Valtteri Filppula - Henrik Zetterberg - Danny Cleary
Jiri Hudler - Darren Helm - Justin Abdelkader
Drew Miller - Cory Emmerton - Tomas Holmstrom

Jonathan Ericsson - Niklas Kronwall
Nicklas Lidstrom - Ian White
Jakub Kindl - Brad Stuart

Detroit outscored Boston, 10-3, last season in those two February meetings.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
