The radio broadcast on WNAW and WBEC-AM tonight at 6 pm and they are neck and neck with Philly for the top of the Atlantic Division.
The Bruins have also played a strong brand of hockey going 7 and 3 so far in March and 14 and 7 since February. With the acquisition of defensemen Hampus Lindholm, the B’s got stronger at the trade deadline. The NHL still has a good chunk of the season left. The Bruins will play 19 more games before the season is over and the playoffs begin. You can listen to the Bruins and Lightning Thursday night on WNAW and WBEC-AM. The puck drops at 7 pm.
