    Game 55 - Canknuckleheads at Bruins GDT

    BOSTON -- When the Vancouver Canucks visit the Boston Bruins on Tuesday at TD Garden, they will be hungry for a victory after losing their past four games in regulation.

    The Bruins, who have won five of their past six, will be ready for a team with everything to lose. "A team that's a desperate team is always a challenge," Bruins forward Chris Kelly said after the morning skate. "And we know that they're going to play desperate hockey. Whenever you lose four games in a row, and the expectations are extremely high like they are for that team, they're going to come out with their best game and we need to be ready for that."

    The Canucks did not hold a morning skate. They flew in late Monday after a 2-0 road loss to the Detroit Red Wings.

    Here are the projected lineups for both teams:

    CANUCKS

    Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alexandre Burrows

    Chris Higgins - Ryan Kesler - Zack Kassian

    David Booth - Zac Dalpe - Jannik Hansen

    Tom Sestito - Jordan Schroeder - Kellan Lain

    Alexander Edler - Jason Garrison

    Dan Hamhuis - Ryan Stanton

    Yann Sauve - Frank Corrado

    Roberto Luongo

    Eddie Lack

    Scratched: Raphael Diaz, Yannick Weber, Brad Richardson

    Injured: Kevin Bieksa (foot), Christopher Tanev (hand), Mike Santorelli (shoulder), Andrew Alberts (concussion)

    BRUINS

    Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Jarome Iginla

    Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Reilly Smith

    Chris Kelly - Carl Soderberg - Loui Eriksson

    Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara - Dougie Hamilton

    Matt Bartkowski - Johnny Boychuk

    Torey Krug - Kevan Miller

    Tuukka Rask

    Chad Johnson

    Scratched: Jordan Caron, David Warsofsky

    Injured: Adam McQuaid (leg), Dennis Seidenberg (knee)

    Notes: The Canucks won the first matchup of the season, 6-2, in Vancouver, a game that resulted in Ryan Kesler saying that Brad Marchand has "no class." ... This game marks the final one before for the break for Zdeno Chara, with the Bruins captain missing the games in St. Louis and at home against Ottawa to go early to Sochi, Russia, for the Olympics. He will serve as the flag bearer for Team Slovakia. ... The Canucks played last night in Detroit and did not skate this morning in Boston. ... The referees are Gord Dwyer and Wes McCauley. The linesmen are Andy McElman and Bryan Pancich."

    @NHLBruins

    "Looks to be #TuukkaTime tonight, with Tuukka Rask the first goalie off at morning skate ^CS"

    Burrows is in the lineup. Hopefully Bergeron will have his fingers bandaged up for protection.

    I think has matured a lot in the past 3 seasons. I don't call him that anymore, because he certainly didn't deserve the BS the Canucks put him thru. I was so hoping that he would've told the Canucks to take a p iss up a rope! But, he showed class & professionalism & I have to respec that. At the same time I do hope the Bruins light him up like a Christmas tree in Central Park!

    You don't have to Nite and for the most part he has played really well this year but he still has the ability to make an easy save and turn it into a goal, whether its a shot from behind his own net or a dribbler, he still springs the odd Leak. I just hope he doesn't spring any during the Olympics but tonight i hope its a flood.

    Interesting point by Elliotte Friedman tonight on THE FAN 590's Primetime Sports. He said the major difference he sees with the Caschmucks this year is they don't play weak former division mates like a poor Calgary, Oiler or feeble Colorado team as often any more like they did in their previous years when they ran the Northwest Division.

    Now they're in the Pacific lot along with stronger teams like Anaheim, the Kings, SJ and Coyotes which to him supports the idea their best shot at the Cup has passed them by.

    I havent't seen the clip yet but has anyone caught Tortorella's post-game presser last night after the Red Wings game? Friedman said he thought Tortorella's comments (I'm paraphrasing.) of "When David Booth is your best player, you know you're in trouble." were out of line and pretty much dumping the idea of a kinder, calmer coach.

    I think Torts bench rants will stop for now. But using the media to call out his players won't cease anytime soon. I don't agree with calling players out in the press but some coaches prefer using the media.
