Saturday matinees are a hockey tradition in Boston, so it’s not surprising that the Bruins and New York Rangers
have an early call this Saturday.
The Original Six rivals meet for the third time this season when the Rangers come to TD Garden for a 1 p.m. ET faceoff, the start of a busy 12-game day of NHL hockey. Both teams are coming off home games on Thursday -- but while the Bruins played perhaps their best game of the season in a 7-0 wipeout of Montreal, the Rangers looked sluggish in a 2-1 shootout loss to Ottawa.
In Saturday's other afternoon game, Colorado visits Los Angeles at 4 p.m. ET. The struggling Avs lost 4-3 at home to Toronto on Thursday, the same night the Kings beat San Jose 4-3 in a shootout at home.
