8 a.m. ET: Another night and another struggling opponent awaits the Bruins. After steamrolling the lowly Hurricanes on Monday night, the B’s head out on the road Wednesday to take on the Devils. New Jersey is still in the playoff hunt, but they’re on the outside looking in at the moment. That’s thanks to a recent skid that has seen them go just 2-4-4 in their last 10 games. The Devils’ issues continue to stem from the offense. Only two teams have scored fewer goals than Jersey, and they enter Wednesday’s game having scored just six goals in their last five games, a stretch that has produced a 0-3-2 record. Among those games was a 1-0 loss to the Bruins last Thursday in Boston. The Devils peppered Tuukka Rask with 40 shots, but he was able to turn away all of them in a game that featured Jaromir Jagr scoring the game’s lone goal in his Bruins debut. The B’s have had some offensive issues of their own lately, but they took a big step forward in curing those ailments Monday night again...

Bruins’ Combination of Jaromir Jagr, Brad Marchand Looking Too Good to Break Up

BOSTON — The Jaromir Jagr experiment in Boston has been pretty successful thus far, aside from the whole trying to figure out where to put him part.

He was once again strong on the puck, and he created space for his new linemates...
