NHL Picks Parlay: All Points Go To The Boston Bruins Tonight
It's Coming Up All A's For B's
Everything, it seems, is going the way of the Boston Bruins, who've lost just once in regulation since Dec. 16 and face the Buffalo Sabres at home Saturday. In Thursday's 6-1 win over the New York Rangers, 14 different Bruins collected a point, including back-up goaltender Anton Khudonin. Boston's fourth line of Sean Kuraly, Austin Czarnik and Tim Schaller has posted 3-3-6 totals in the past two games. Even a suspension to top-line forward Brad Marchand couldn't slow them down.
The Minnesota Wild, who play host to the Chicago Blackhawks Saturday, are to home ice what the Bruins are everywhere. The Wild have collected a point in 11 consecutive home games since Dec. 27. And speaking of home cooking, who doesn't love a homecoming? That's what happens in Montreal on Saturday, as former Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and the defending Western Champion Nashville Predators face the Habs.
