The final game of the Detroit Red Wings road trip will be against the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

This will be the final meeting of the season between the two Atlantic Division teams. Boston has won all three of the previous three meetings during this campaign. They can complete the season series sweep at home.

In terms of the playoff race, the Bruins are six points out of first place in the Atlantic and three points ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs who are third in the standings. The Red Wings are still long shots to make the postseason and will be nine points out of the final wild-card spot entering this game.

Losing three consecutive games as put a damper on the Red Wings playoff hopes as the Bruins are in the opposite position having won their last three games. Additionally, they have scored a combined 14 goals in those three wins.

The Bruins will be without Tuukka Rask and Charlie McAvoy for this game. Rask is one of the top goaltenders in the National Hockey League right now but his backup Anton Khudobin has been a strong presence in net as well. Khudobin has a record of 14-4-4.

The Red Wings will go with Jared Coreau in net. This will be his first start since getting called up to the team following the departure of Petr Mrazek.

In terms of scoring leaders, the Bruins have continued to be led by Brad Marchand. Despite being suspended mid-season, the forward still has managed an impressive 61 points in 50 appearances. He currently has six points in his last five appearances.

Patrice Bergeron has led Boston in goal scoring with 27 goals in 55 appearances. Although, he has not scored a goal since Feb. 13th.

Dylan Larkin, per usual, has been the Red Wings biggest threat offensively. He has four assists in his last five games.
