It will mark the third and final regular season meeting between the two teams this year. While the Bruins managed to take the first game on opening night, the Rangers exacted revenge in their second meeting with an overtime winner from Marian Gaborik.
Entering the season, both teams were expected to be Eastern Conference contenders.
Boston, has thus far lived up to that hype registering only one regulation loss this season. New York has struggled at times, but has won two straight and three of their last four.
The Bruins will also be entering Tuesday night on a winning-streak, as the club has earned victories in their last three consecutive games. Over that span, the team has held their opponents to one goal or less over that span.
In general, Boston has excelled in stifling their opponents offense as they are allowing an average of 2.10 goals against per game (ranked sixth best in the league). In addition, the club boasts the league's best penalty kill, which is operating at a 92.9 percent success rate (tied with the Chicago Blackhawks).
Ranked 17th in the NHL in average goals per game (2.64), the club's power play is the second worst in the league only converting on 10 percent of its opportunities.
However, the team could potentially be breaking out of that funk, as they have registered four-plus goals over the course of their current two-game winning-streak.
Tuesday night's game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m., ET and will be televised on NBCSN, MSG and NESN.
