We’re here at the TD Garden as the Bruins take on the Senators this afternoon. This marks the final game for the Bruins before the Olympic break, and the second game without Zdeno Chara, who carried in the flag for Team Slovakia at the Olympic opening ceremonies yesterday.
For now, the Bruins will attempt to finish off the run that they’ve been on since taking on Dallas on Jan. 16. In those last 10 games, the Bruins have gone 7-1-2, earning points in all but the loss to Montreal. That’s 16 of the possible 20 points they could have earned.
