8 a.m. ET: The Bruins continue their five-game road trip on Sunday, and they will have to do so without arguably their best player in this young season.
The B’s are in Winnipeg for the second of five on this roadie, and they’ll be going at it without Milan Lucic. The bruising winger made the trip back to Boston for personal reasons, and Boston will be without his services for its matchup with the Jets. Lucic’s absence likely means Jay Pandolfo will make his Bruins debut.
Boston is looking to bounce back following a crushing loss to the Sabres on Friday night. The Bruins held a 2-1 lead and were dominating through two periods in Buffalo, but they fell apart in the third en route to a 4-2 loss.
They’ll try to get back on the winning track against the Jets, but winning in Winnipeg isn’t easy. The Jets were 23-13-5 at home last season, and they were able to win both meetings against the Bruins at MTS Centre.
The Bruins earned a shootout win over Winnipeg on Jan. 21.
