    PHOENIX -- The Bruins are set to finish off the second game of a Western Conference back-to-back, taking on the Coyotes at the Jobing.com Arena at 6 p.m. local time.

    They have already done their part, clinching the first playoff spot in the NHL on Friday night with a 2-0 win over the Avalanche in Colorado for their 11th straight win. They'll try to make it 12 tonight, further extending their lead in the East.

    Boston has already beaten the Coyotes once during the streak, taking a 2-1 win on March 13 at the TD Garden.

    Game time: 9 p.m.

    TV/Radio: NESN/98.5 The Sports Hub

    Records: Bruins 47-17-5, Coyotes 34-25-11

    Projected lineups:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
    Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Reilly Smith
    Chris Kelly-Carl Soderberg-Loui Eriksson
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Dougie Hamilton
    Matt Bartkowski-Johnny Boychuk
    Torey Krug-Kevan Miller

    Tuukka Rask
    Chad Johnson

    Notes: The 11-game winning streak for the Bruins is their longest since a 13-game streak in 1970-1971. ... The team has earned a point in each of its last 13 road games, going 10-0-3. That's their longest such streak since a 14-gamer in 1975-1976. ... They are now tied with the Blues for the league lead with 101 points. Both teams have played 70 games, with St. Louis losing earlier today. ... The Bruins have outscored their opponents 43-15 during the streak, and have allowed two or fewer goals nine times. ... Boston has also killed 29-of-31 power-play chances in that time. ... The referees are Gord Dwyer and Mike Leggo. The linesmen are Jonny Murray and David Brisebois.

    hoping to see Boychuk continue his solid play, suffering no lingering effects from the other night

    after reading a post here about Marchand not passing to Smith (trust issues?), I watched for this last night and noted that he made at least two choices to bypass solid shooting opportunities in order to feed the puck to Reilly, with neither resulting in a scoring chance ... will see what happens tonight

    Looking for hard work and consistency straight on through until Boston lifts the Cup (and no injuries!)

    Cocyotes have really come back strong since the Bergeron goal... Bruins need to pick it up

    Bruins seem a step slower than Phoenix so far.

    4 games in 6 days is pretty brutal... March is a tough month but Boston banked the points already

    It looks like they're pushing the game towards the Coyotes.

    Bruins looked much better as the second went on... but the damage is done and we need to get at least one now!

    we might see an end to the streak folks... can the Bruins find the energy to come from behind?

    Just need a typical Bruin 3rd period and we can all go to sleep happy. If not -- it's been a good run..... 

    Only have Yotes feed on Center Ice. Announcers freaking out over non call on the Iginla hit claiming should have been a PS or at the least -- a penalty. Replay clearly showed it was a good call. Iginla -- just a solid body check on a player with possession -- no stick, no trip, no hook.

    What did they say about the too-many-men non-call in the first? That was pretty obvious.

    There it is! Chara! Didn't even seem like he gave that big of a windup. Iginla deserves a medal for bravery for screening in front of Smith with that shot coming. NESN replays show the puck hit Iginla on the way.

    Iggy is such a great Bruin... legal hit but he didn't like it and he shows the home ice what Ek-Larson is made of

    The Bruins don't look like a team that's played 4 games in 6 nights. They're playing with energy right now.
