Quantcast

After an intense and emotional game against the Montreal Canadiens, the Bruins get ready to play the Pittsburgh Penguins for the second time this season.

The Penguins have continued their dominance as one of the best regular season teams in the NHL. Marc-Andre Fluery just isn't the same basket case in the regular season as he is in the post season. He can actually handle the game and so the Penguins can actually win.

But that didn't stop the Bruins from beating the Penguins the last time the two teams faced off. After the Penguins tied the game with 0.3 seconds left on the clock, Scorey Krug got the game winning goal in OT, and the Penguins left TD with their tale between their legs.

Keys:

1) Blue Blanc And Rouge: The Bruins are coming off of a bitter lose to the Montreal Canadiens. The B's were invisible through the second period and most of the third period. The offense wasn't producing and Tuukka let it one bad goal. That one bad goal was all it took for the Habs to win. If the Bruins offense doesn't start to produce, especially Marchand and Eriksson, then the Bruins won't be able to beat the Penguins. Its just that simple. Pittsburgh will jump all over them.

2) Boychuck And McQuaid Out: Both Adam McQuaid and Johnny Boychuck will be out for tonights game against the Pens. McQuaid re-aggravated his injury and Boychuck as we all know is out after a hit from behind from Max Pacioretty. That means both Matt Bartkowski and Kevan Miller will be in tonight and on the same light. The pair has been solid in the past but lets hope they don't make any mistakes tonight.
