Tale of the Tape: Bruins vs. Devils
They may not play in the same division, but just 200 miles separate the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils, who will take to the ice this week for NBCSN's Wednesday Night Rivalry.

The Eastern Conference rivals haven't met in the postseason in 10 years, but they could be headed for a first-round matchup when the Stanley Cup Playoffs get under way later this month. The Bruins have a good chance to finish either first or second in the conference, while the Devils, currently stuck in 10th place, will have to scramble to earn the seventh or eighth spot.

How do these teams stack up against one another? Let's have a gander:

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
