They gave up 20 shots in their first meeting, 27 in the second one, and 35 in the third one. That last one the Bruins were playing the second of back-to-back nights. I hope trends are made to be reversed as I don't like our chances if we give up 45 shots on goal.
If Marchand gets at least one game that will certainly help. He is (almost) a 40-goal scorer *and* he occupies people's attention in other ways. But even if he is out of the lineup we have to contend with Bergeron, Pastrnak, Krejci, Spooner, Krug, Chara, Backes, etc. Need Burrows to annoy the hell out of Rask (if he's in goal) because we certainly want to take advantage of what their D give us (which should be a lot).
