8 a.m. ET: The Bruins opened their four-game road trip in less-than-ideal fashion with a 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday night, and they didn’t have long to dwell on things. The B’s are back in action in frigid Winnipeg on Tuesday night where they will look to complete a season sweep of the upstart Jets. Winnipeg actually enters this game ahead of the Bruins in the Eastern Conference standings as the Southeast Division leaders, although the B’s have nine more points in two fewer games this season. Boston is coming off its busiest week of the season, at least in terms of the calendar. But it probably doesn’t feel like much of a break, as the Bruins are in the midst of a stretch in which they’ll play 15 games in 26 days. They have survived thus far, but they have evened off some as of late. The B’s are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games. To put that in perspective, the Bruins didn’t suffer their third regulation loss of the season until the 19th game of the season. The Bruins may also be a little shorthanded on Tuesday night. It’s unclear whether or not David Krejci will be in the Boston lineup after the center left Sunday’s game after taking a Johnny Boychuk slap shot to the leg. It looked pretty bad at first, but Boston coach Claude Julien revealed Monday that the center will be day-to-day. We’ll obviously know more as gametime approaches. These two clubs will get things under way in the Peg beginning at 8 p.m.
