Bruins look to avoid skid against Blackhawks

Chicago (36-17-9) at Boston (42-14-9), 1:00 p.m. EST

BOSTON (Ticker) -- The Boston Bruins look to snap a three-game

losing streak when they host the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday.

Leading the Eastern Conference with 93 points, the Bruins'

recent swoon has caused them to cough off a healthy lead in the

standings. The second-place New Jersey Devils are six points

away from pulling even for the top spot.

Boston, which is coming off a 2-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on

Thursday, had dropped four in a row from February 7-14.

The Blackhawks, meanwhile, is hoping to build off their 3-2

overtime win over the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday and notch their

third straight victory.

After this contest, Chicago will play nine of its next 11 games

at home, where it is 17-5-6. The Blackhawks are 19-12-3 on the

road this season.
