It’s been a while since the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers butted heads in the playoffs – Simon Gagne wore both teams’ sweaters since then – but it’s possible that these squads might duke it out for a spot this season.
As it stands right now, both the Bruins and Flyers are outside of the East’s top eight, but not by much.
That really sweetens the deal for hockey fans on Tuesday: two teams with history face off, yet they also have plenty to fight for in the present. They also boast the likes of Claude Giroux and Patrice Bergeron on each side.
This kicks off what should be a really fun doubleheader on NBCSN tonight. You can watch online or via the NBC Sports App.
