Tale of the Tape: Bruins visit Red Wings
Tale of the Tape: Boston Bruins visit Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday Night Rivalry.

The Boston Bruins know they'll be in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the Detroit Red Wings are scrambling to get to the postseason for the 23rd consecutive season. 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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
