NBCSN’s coverage of the 2018-19 NHL season continues with the Wednesday Night Hockey matchup between the Boston Bruins and Vegas Golden Knights. Coverage begins at 10 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

If the playoffs started today, both the Bruins and Golden Knights would be in the postseason. But right now – the two teams are headed in different directions – as the Bruins are among the hottest teams in the league, while the Golden Knights have struggled mightily over the last month.

The Bruins are on a season-high six-game winning streak and an 11-game point streak (8-0-3 record), which started immediately upon returning from the NHL All-Star break. Boston is currently 3-0-0 on their current five-game road trip, which concludes Saturday when they face another hot team – the St. Louis Blues.

Bruins leading goal-scorer David Pastrnak (31 goals) has missed the last four games after undergoing surgery on his left thumb. The 22-year-old superstar suffered the injury on Sunday, Feb. 10, after falling while walking to his transportation following a sponsorship dinner.

The Golden Knights have lost four of their last five games (1-4-0) and are coming off a 3-0 loss at struggling Colorado on Monday (The Avs had lost nine of their previous 10 games before defeating Vegas).

Since Jan. 21, Vegas has lost eight of their last 11 games (3-8-0), including five losses at home.

The Golden Knights are in the middle of a brutal stretch, having gone 5-10-0 since Jan. 10, which is the worst in the league in that span. Despite their recent struggles, they are still in a good position to make the playoffs, as they are third in the Pacific, nine points ahead of Arizona & Vancouver.
