Found March 23, 2013 on NESN.com:
While the Bruins won their last time out, it wasn’t the prettiest of victories. Then again, looking back at how this road trip has gone for the B’s, any victory is cause for celebration. Boston has a chance to wrap up that road trip in Toronto on Saturday night, and when they get home, the Maple Leafs will be waiting there to play again. That rare home-and-home should give the team a great opportunity to capitalize on their rival’s recent downturn in fortune and also could allow the B’s to finally regain the momentum they’ve lost in the middle stretch of this season. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is optimistic about the Bruins’ chances at a ninth straight win against Toronto. See why in the above video. Join NESN Nation: In-game home page | Twitter | Facebook
