NBCSN’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs continues with Wednesday’s Game 3 matchup between the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals. Bruins-Capitals stream coverage begins at 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.
It was a much better performance from Boston’s top players, not long after head coach Bruce Cassidy said they needed to step up. Marchand and Patrice Bergeron found the back of the night and Taylor Hall continued to contribute by sending the game into overtime. That will need to continue Wednesday to break the deadlock in the series.
Game 3 will also feature former Bruins captain Zdeno Chara returning to TD Garden, which will feature 4,500 fans, for a playoff game.
One potential absence for the Capitals could be center Lars Eller. He was injured in the second period of Game 2 and his status is in question for Wednesday night.
“Lars is an important player for us,” said Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette. “He’s done a really good job, he’s handled big minutes against big opponents, and he’s played well for us, especially in the last month.”
“They’re out there and that’s a good sign,” he said.
