It wouldn't be a Boston Bruins vs. Washington Capitals game without a controversial Tom Wilson hit.

Sean Kuraly on GHS: Bruins 'so excited' to play in front of fans for first time this weekend

On Friday night, the Bruins will do something they haven’t done in almost a full calendar year: Play in front of fans. The Rangers will host roughly 2,000 fans at Madison Square Garden for the Bruins’ games there on Friday night and Sunday afternoon, marking their first home games with fans this season and the Bruins’ first games anywhere with fans since they played in Philadelphia last March 10, their last game before the season was put on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Bruins' Sean Kuraly: Unlikely hero Friday

Kuraly scored the game-winning goal in Friday's 2-1 victory over the Flyers. Only 27 seconds after Brad Marchand had tied the score midway through the third period, Kuraly wired a puck from just inside the blue line that beat Brian Elliott glove-side and rattled in off the post. It's only Kuraly's second goal and third point of the season, but all of that production has come in the last five games. Given his career highs of eight goals and 23 points over a full campaign, however, the 28-year-old grinder isn't likely to maintain that pace for long.

Bruins' Sean Kuraly: Tallies first goal

Kuraly recorded his first goal of the season in the Bruins' 4-1 win over the Penguins on Thursday. Kuraly's goal, his first point in seven games to date, came off a deflection from his leg, but nonetheless capped a strong shift by the Bruins' fourth line. The trio also included Anders Bjork and Chris Wagner -- who scored Thursday -- and given its strong play versus Pittsburgh, the combo should stick together for the time being.

Sean Kuraly on GHS: 'We think we've got the team we need to compete for a Stanley Cup'

At least among fans, expectations for the 2021 Bruins don’t seem to be as high as they have been in recent years. That’s understandable. After a great regular season last year, they went out with a whimper in the playoffs, losing in five games to the Lightning in the second round. Then they lost Torey Krug and Zdeno Chara in free agency and didn’t bring in anyone to replace them. Their biggest “splash” of the offseason was signing third-line wing Craig Smith -- a very good value signing, to be fair, but not exactly one that got fans fired up.

Boston Bruins: What to expect from Sean Kuraly in 2021

What can we expect from Boston Bruins’ center Sean Kuraly for the 2021 season?. Over the past few years, center Sean Kuraly has solidified himself as the Boston Bruins‘ fourth line center.

Bruins' Sean Kuraly: Left off injury report

Kuraly (groin) was not included among Bruins President Cam Neely's injury report Monday, per Conor Ryan of Kuraly ended the season with a groin issue but didn't require surgery. The 26-year-old center garnered 23 points in 69 games last season but may be hard-pressed to reach the 20-point threshold given the shortened 2020-21 campaign. The Ohio native will almost certainly start the year in the bottom six, making him a mid-range fantasy option at best.
