The Boston Bruins have been one the hottest teams in recent weeks. They have been dominating the Detroit Red Wings for much longer.
Boston goes for its third straight victory and fifth in six games overall when it meets Detroit on Wednesday night for the first time this season at Little Caesar's Arena.
The Bruins are 10-1-1 in their last 12 against the Red Wings, including four wins in Detroit. Boston (14-9-4) went 3-0-1 in last season's series, and killed off all 12 short-handed situations.
