The fans at TD Garden will be treated to a game between the Washington Capitals and the Boston Bruins when they take their seats on Thursday.

ABOUT THE CAPITALS (19-12-1): Evgeny Kuznetsov recorded three assists Tuesday to take over the team lead with 34 points – one better than captain Alex Ovechkin, who shares the NHL’s top spot with 21 goals. “Pretty deceptive guy and he’s pretty creative,” defenseman Matt Niskanen told reporters of Kuznetsov. “When he’s wheeling and dealing and feeling like that, get to the scoring area and get ready.” T.J. Oshie, who is tied for fourth on the team with 23 points, is expected to miss his fifth straight game due to an upper-body injury.

ABOUT THE BRUINS (15-9-4): Pastrnak (28) and Marchand (25) lead the team in points while defenseman Torey Krug tied Patrice Bergeron for third with 18 after registering four assists over his last two contests. Noel Acciari scored his second goal of the season Wednesday while Tim Schaller recorded an assist for his first point since posting two on Nov. 6 against Minnesota. Tuukka Rask has turned around his season by posting a 5-1-0 record and .958 save percentage in his last six games, but backup Anton Khudobin (7-1-2) is expected to start on Thursday.

Oddsmakers opened the Bruins as -115-moneyline favorites versus the Capitals, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Washington Capitals look to continue their dominance in the all-time series and climb into first place in the Metropolitan Division when they visit the surging Boston Bruins on Thursday. The Capitals have won eight of 10 overall to tie Columbus for the top spot in the division and will go for their 11th consecutive victory over the Bruins, a streak that includes a 3-2 win on Nov. 4 in Boston.

Washington, which is averaging 3.8 goals over its last 10 contests, rebounded from Monday’s 3-1 loss to the New York Islanders with a 5-2 triumph over Colorado the following night, and coach Barry Trotz told reporters, “I think we have a pretty prideful group that wants to respond.” The Capitals start a stretch of five of six games on the road against the red-hot Bruins, who rallied to beat Detroit 3-2 in overtime on Wednesday for their ninth win in 11 contests. David Pastrnak tied the affair with 1:26 remaining in regulation to extend his point streak to nine games (five goals, six assists) and Brad Marchand tallied in the extra session to complete a two-point effort and give him 10 in six games. The Bruins have allowed 22 goals in their last 11 contests and four during their three-game winning streak.

In their last action, Boston was a 3-2 winner on the road against the Red Wings. Bettors on Boston at -140 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Washington, they were a 5-2 winner as they battled the Avalanche at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Capitals at -182 were rewarded, while the 7 combined goals moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
