RANGERS (6-5-0) at BRUINS (8-1-1)
TV: NESN, NBCSN (outside NESN coverage)
Season series: Third and final meeting of the regular season. Each team has won on its home ice. Milan Lucic, Daniel Paille and Johnny Boychuk all scored as Boston won 3-1 on opening night. Four days later, Marian Gaborik completed a hat trick with a goal 27 seconds into overtime for a 4-3 victory.
Big story: Highlighted at the start of the season as a potential Eastern Conference Finals matchup, the Bruins have lived up to the early hype with just two losses — one in regulation — over their first 10 games, while the Rangers seem to be rounding into form after a sluggish start. These teams won’t see each other again after Tuesday unless they meet in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
