Scouting the Bruins

This is the second and final meeting of the season between the Kings and the Boston Bruins. It follows the Bruins’ 3-0 win in Boston on Dec. 13. The Bruins have been all over the place of late. They were riding high atop the Northeast Division, then suffered a four-game losing streak in mid-March, in which they were outscored by a combined margin of 21-8. They followed that up with a nice 3-2 shootout win over Philadelphia, an 8-0 whitewashing of Toronto and a 2-1 loss at San Jose on Thursday, and are now back in first place in the division. The Bruins are 3-for-7 on the power play in their last four games. For the latest on the Bruins, check out the coverage from the Boston Herald and from ESPNBoston.com, followed by the possible linesups for the Kings and the Bruins…
