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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
