Bruins forward Brad Marchand scored Boston’s lone goal on Tuesday night as the Bruins fell 2-1 to the New Jersey Devils, but a come from behind win by the Montreal Canadiens over the Detroit Red Wings kept the B’s afloat in the third Atlantic Division playoff spot.
Boston out shot New Jersey 40-15 on the night, but couldn’t find their finishing touch against second-year goalie Keith Kinkaid, who made a career-high 39 saves in the victory.
The loss keeps the Bruins at 88 points, while Detroit’s 4-3 loss to Montreal keeps them at 87 points. Both teams have five games remaining in their regular season, including a matchup at the TD Garden in the season’s 81st game which will more than likely prove to be pivotal. Tickets to that game are available HERE.
The Bruins will continue their four-game road trip on Friday night when they take on the St. Louis Blues. Detroit next plays at home on Friday night against the Minnesota Wild. The Philadelphia Flyers, who are tied with the Red Wings in the Wild Card standings but have two games at hand, take on the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Bruins Tickets for all remaining games still available.
