Slowing Down the Tuukka Train. - Justin K. Aller

Seems like every game these days is a "lovely" afternoon start, meaning I can't watch thanks to work. Who needs a career anyway?

Boston will be playing the second game of a back-to-back. They lost away to the Pittsburgh Penguins last night in regulation by a score of 3-2.

Numbers for Nerds: 6- Position in the division the Boston Bruins would be if they played in the Pacific, 4 points out of a wild-card spot.

Team Records: Ducks: 10-3-0, 20 points (2nd in Pacific Division); Boston: 7-4-0, 14 points (5th in Atlantic Division, 2nd Eastern Conference Wild Card holder)

Team Leaders: Anaheim: Points- Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry (13); Goals- Perry (6); Assists- Ryan Getzlaf (8); Time on Ice- Cam Fowler (22:49/gm), Plus-Minus- Hampus Lindholm (+10). Boston: Points- David Krejci, Milan Lucic (12), Goals- Milan Lucic (6), Assists- David Krejci (10), Time on Ice- Zdeno Chara (23:31/gm), Plus-Minus- Dennis Seidenberg (+10)

Goaltenders: Anaheim- Jonas Hiller: 5-2-0, 2.56 GAA, .913 Sv. %, 1 SO; Fredrik Andersen: 3-0-0, 1.50 GAA, .944 Sv. %, 0 SO. Boston- Tuukka Rask: 6-4-0, 1.71 GAA, .943 Sv. %, 1 SO; Chad Johnson: 1-0-0, 2.00 GAA, .875 Sv. %, 0 SO

Power Play: Anaheim (as if you didn't know this by now...)- 7.8%, 30th in NHL; Boston 14.7%, 22nd in NHL. Not a real barn-burner here.

Penalty Kill: Anaheim- 75.6%, 29th in NHL; Boston- 75.8%, 28th in NHL.

Clearly on paper special teams are not going to be a factor tonight, which logically can only mean they will be the single most important part of the game.
