The longtime rivals face off in the Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, RDS, TSN2). The Bruins clinched the Atlantic Division title last week and are battling for the Presidents' Trophy; the Red Wings are in a clutch of teams battling for the two wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
