Preview: Bruins at Blue Jackets

Boston had a six-game road winning streak halted Sunday in a 6-5 loss at Detroit, a game in which it coughed up an early two-goal lead. The Bruins squeezed out a 3-2 shootout win over the Blue Jackets on Jan. 23 to improve to 8-2-0 against them in the past 10 meetings. Columbus is in the midst of its best stretch of the season, extending its point streak to five games (4-0-1) with a 4-2 victory over Ottawa on Saturday. “We’re getting that feeling, excitement back in our game,” forward Brandon Saad said. “Anytime you string some wins together and the streak we have with forcing games to overtime and bouncing back like we do, it’s exciting for the team. We’re feeling good about ourselves.”<BR><BR><STRONG>TV:</STRONG> 7 p.m. ET, NESN (Boston), FSN Ohio (Columbus)
