Daily Primer March 21: Bruins go for 11 in a row

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The hottest team in the NHL goes for its 11th straight victory Friday, and possibly a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. To get it, the Boston Bruins will have to beat one of the best in the NHL.

The Bruins bring a 10-game winning streak into their game against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver. It's the first of a back-to-back set for Boston, which had a couple of days off after a 4-2 road win against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday.

Boston also has a chance to be the first team to clinch a playoff spot Friday. They can do so if they beat the Avalanche in any form, or if they get one point against the Avalanche and the New York Rangers lose in regulation to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Bruins have outscored their opponents 41-15 during their win streak and have won seven of the 10 games by three or more goals. They lead the Eastern Conference with 99 points.

Colorado is home after going 1-1-1 on a three-game swing through Canada that ended with a 5-4 overtime loss against the Winnipeg Jets on Wednesday. The Avalanche have 94 points, putting them seventh in the overall standings but third in the Central Division behind the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks.

Here's a look at all of the action Friday:

Super 16: Career year marks crossroad for Okposo

Friday, 03.21.2014 / 2:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

This has been a lost season for the New York Islanders, one that began with hope of building off a return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2013, but is ending with losses piling up and more question marks about the lineup built around superstar John Tavares than when the campaign commenced.

There has been one potentially big development for the future of the Islanders in 2013-14, and that is the play of Kyle Okposo. Long considered a gifted but inconsistent forward with potential, Okposo has put together the best season of his career with 69 points in 69 games.

Though he has spent a lot of his career with the Islanders on the second line, he moved into the spot next to Tavares and either Matt Moulson or Thomas Vanek, and that trio proved to be one of the most productive in the NHL. The question moving forward is simple: Will 2013-14 be remembered as a breakout season for Okposo, or a career year?

Wild gain confidence earning point in comeback

Thursday, 03.20.2014 / 11:16 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The Minnesota Wild trailed the New Jersey Devils by two goals in the third period, and it looked like they were certain to lose for the sixth time in eight games and score one goal or fewer for the third time in four.

But a comeback forced overtime, earned a point in the standings for a 4-3 loss, and gave the Wild a little swagger in their march toward the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"The points are important. We had an opportunity to get two," Wild forward Zach Parise said. "But I think given the way we came back a couple of times, this one could be important."

Quote of the Day

There was a lot of talk off the ice. From a player's standpoint, that's not the talk in the room. GMs make decisions, coaches make decisions, but as a team you have to come together and be ready to go, and we are.
