host the Eastern Conference leader Boston Bruins
. Mark it on your TV sports calendar for 12:30 ET on NBC.
As the Bruins make their playoff plans and anticipate potential home-ice advantage deep into the spring, their long-time rival New York is staggering after a quick start. Look for All-Star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist
to make an effort to stop the likes of Boston scorers Marc Savard
, Phil Kessel
, Blake Wheeler
and David Krejci
. Nine different Bruins appeared headed for potential 20-goal seasons. It will be Boston's first appearance on NBC this season.
