The Bruins are coming back into action tonight at 7 pm when they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bruins are currently 1-3-1 in their last 5 games, including the 4-1 to Pittsburgh on Monday. Although Tuukka Rask did travel with the team, he is still out due to injury. Jaroslav Halak played yesterday in the Bruins 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh so, Dan Vladar will be getting his first NHL career start. Jake DeBrusk will not be suiting up tonight since he is on the covid protocol list. Ondrej Kase, John Moore, Brandon Carlo, Kevan Miller, Jeremy Lauzon, and Zach Senyshyn remain on injured reserve. The Bruins defense will have to step up with them missing so many pieces and their offense will have to be a little more creative than last night.
This will be a big game for Dan Vladar, we got to see a little action from him in the playoffs but with him getting the start tonight, we can truly get a better view on how he can play at the NHL level.
