The Boston Bruins need to keep the momentum from last night's come from behind win in Pittsburgh going tonight against the Ottawa Senators at the TD Bank North Garden in Boston.

The Bruins need to come out flying and on a mission to win this 60-minute tilt.  The Bruins need to regain the Garden ice as a tough place for visiting teams to play with this four game home stand that is upon them. 

The Bruins are just 9-6-3 at home this season.  In the 2010 season, the Bruins ended the season 18-17-6 at home and 21-13-7 on the road.

The Bruins played very well in Montreal but not the full 60 minutes.  The Bruins then played very well and hung in there and played the full 60 minutes last night and got rewarded for it.  Two very positive, confidence builders that the Bruins can use to propel themselves into the Senators game tonight.

Writer's note:  

Patrice Bergeron earned two more assists Monday night, including a great pass to set Brad Marchand up with the tying goal. He has 14 points in the last 12 games and has two goals and three assists in the last three.

The Bruins will play with the same line up from last night with the change of Tim Thomas in net for Tuukka Rask tonight. 

Game No. 42 starts tonight at 7 p.m. from TD Bank North Garden.
