Tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET, the Boston Bruins (52-17-6, 110 points) and Detroit Red Wings (36-26-14, 86 points) faceoff live from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit for the fourth and final meeting against each other this season. The game can be live streamed here. Boston fans can hear all of the action on WBZ 1030 while Detroit fans can do the same on 97.1 The Ticket.

Boston has won nine of their last ten including three games in a row and sits atop the race for the Presidents' Trophy while Detroit has won two straight and owns the first wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. The Red Wings have beaten the Bruins two out of the first three times these teams have met, including the last time with a 6-1 triumph on Nov. 27 in Detroit.

The Bruins are in such a good position that they have considered resting some of their top stars for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, which start two weeks from tonight's game.

"It's hard to watch games, and I just really enjoy playing the games," Jarome Iginla told the team's website. "With the standings and where we're at right now, I think it's pretty cool, too, that we're being able to play these games that mean stuff down the road or currently, whereas some teams that clinch, you can't move up or whatever in the standings. It's like all of our games may be meaningful, and I think that's a good thing going into the playoffs."

Iginla is second on the team with 61 points off of 30 goals and 31 assists while David Krejci leads the way with 63 points off of 16 tallies and 47 helpers and Patrice Bergeron ranks third from lighting the lamp 27 times and adding 29 assists for 56 points and is on a seven-game goal scoring streak.

Pavel Datsyuk (knee) may return against Boston, but the team remains without Henrik Zetterberg (16-32-48)

"It's great to see him out on the ice skating and being part of practices," forward Daniel Alfredsson told the team's website. "We feel that we're playing pretty consistent hockey right now and getting a guy with his experience and his offensive abilities, among other things, will be a big boost for this team." 

David Legwand (13-36-49) and Gustav Nyquist (27-18-55) leads the Red Wings in scoring. Nyquist has scored in eight of the last nine games.

Jimmy Howard will likely suit up for Detroit after going 18-18-11 thus far this season with a 2.71 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. He'll likely be countered by Tuukka Rask, who is 34-14-3 with a 2.02 GAA and a .931 save percentage.

The Bruins and Red Wings take the ice against each other tonight when the puck drops at the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.
