The TD Garden will host a Winter Classic preview this evening, as the Philadelphia Flyers (14-15-1) come to the Hub for a matchup with the Bruins (16-9-6).
Boston is coming off a disappointing 3-2 overtime loss at the hands of the New York Islanders, a team the B’s just can’t seem to figure out this year. Despite the loss, Boston still is on an impressive 8-1-2 streak in their last 11 games.
