Need to Know: Bruins at Sharks

by Chris Weyant @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BostonBruins.com - After enjoying a five-day bye week, the Bruins find themselves back in action on Sunday night against the San Jose Sharks. The B's currently sit in third place in the Atlantic Division, but are in desperate need of points to cement their playoff position.

 

Before their reprieve, the Bruins won three straight home contests. They now seek to bring that momentum to the West Coast on a four-game trek across California and Texas.

 

Sunday night's matchup against the Sharks will be the second of two meetings between the clubs this season. The Bruins beat the Sharks 6-3 back on February 9 at TD Garden in Bruce Cassidy's first game as interim head coach.

 

Puck drop is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST on NBCSN and 98.5 The Sports Hub
