5 Blue Jackets players Bruins fans should know before second-round playoff series

Share

The Boston Bruins probably didn't expect to host Game 1 in the second round of the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs, but the series opener will be played at TD Garden thanks to the Columbus Blue Jackets upsetting the Presidents' Trophy-winning Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round.

The Blue Jackets and Bruins played three times in the regular season, and Boston won two of those meetings. Not much can be taken from those games, however. Columbus is much improved, and the pieces it added at the trade deadline, most notable Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel, are really starting to fit well in the lineup.

The Blue Jackets are a dangerous team, and the B's must not take them lightly or another upset could unfold.
