It’s Wednesday and the Boston Bruins are coming to town. You may remember the Bruins from such classics as game seven of the 2012 Eastern Conference quarterfinals. The Bruins are led into town by goal-scoring wizard David Pastrnak, who has 15 goals through 21 games this season.

Heads up: 8:00 pm game tonight and NBCSN has your coverage.
