Boston Bruins vs. New Jersey Devils 3/29/16 NHL Picks & Predictions

After turning things around in his last start, Tuukka Rask will look to lead the Bruins to victory tonight when Boston visits the Devils at 7:00PM ET.

Bet Tonight's Bruins vs. Devils Matchup

Rask won his first game since March 12 when he saved 25 of 26 shots in a 3-1 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday night. He surrendered the first goal of the game to Ben Smith at 16:55 in the first period, but then was perfect the rest of the way. With the Bruins still in danger of falling into a wildcard battle, Rask needs to be sharp again tonight.

Scott Wedgewood will make another start for the Devils, who remain without starter Cory Schneider. Wedgewood has now dropped back-to-back games after winning the first two starts of his NHL career. The 23-year-old allowed three goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes and is now 2-1-1 with a 1.24 goals-against-average.
