The Boston Bruins welcome the second best offense in the league and a familiar face to the TD Garden tonight as the Dallas Stars and Tyler Sequin are in town. With travel bans in effect for the game tonight, the city of Boston is extending as many resources to assist fans with getting to the Garden tonight so attendance numbers could be impacted. Boston is coming off another lackluster performance against the Montreal Canadiens and is looking to bounce back as their hold on eighth place in the standings has shrunk to six.

Pre-Game Warm-Ups

Although there was questions earlier in the day as to whether or not Tyler Seguin would be in the lineup as he is reported to be suffering from the flu, Seguin commented earlier claiming “this was a game he had to play in”.

Kari Lehtonen will be in net for the Stars and will be facing Niklas Svedberg who will be getting his first start since January 8 against New Jersey.
