Upcoming road stretch a good test for Bruins

WILMINGTON — The temperatures in Edmonton are not the only unfriendly aspect of the next week or so for the Bruins. While the Boston players will miss the lows in the negative-20s, they will have to cope with playing on the road, something they largely have avoided in the first two months of the season.

The Bruins have played the fewest road games in the NHL (10), which likely has had an effect on the team’s standing at the top of the Eastern Conference. Carolina (11) is the only other team with fewer than 12 road games in the East, though two teams (St. Louis and Colorado) in the West also had played 11 entering Monday night.
