    Game 11: Bruins at Penguins - Gameday Thread

     

    Bruins, Penguins set for rematch

    "Maybe next time the refs will call more powerplays for you Sid!"

     

    By Amalie Benjamin, Globe Staff  PITTSBURGH – Rivalry Night.

    The Bruins are back in Pittsburgh for the first time since they won the first two games of their Eastern Conference Finals series against the Penguins en route to a sweep last season. It's obvious from what the Penguins have said in the last couple of days that they have something to prove tonight, even if a regular-season game can't quite make up for the Bruins costing them a chance to contend for the Stanley Cup.

    “I don’t think there’s anything we can do [Wednesday] to get back from last spring,” Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said on Tuesday. “I certainly didn’t want to look ahead in any way shape or form the past week or the road trip. But we knew we were coming home to play Boston, the first time we’ll be playing them again. Absolutely, it's a rivalry game.”

    Game time: 8 p.m. TV/Radio: NBC Sports Network/98.5 The Sports Hub

    Records: Bruins 7-3-0, Penguins 8-4-0

    Projected lineups:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Jarome Iginla
    Reilly Smith-Patrice Bergeron-Brad Marchand
    Carl Soderberg-Chris Kelly-Jordan Caron
    Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
    Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
    Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

    Tuukka Rask
    Chad Johnson

    Notes: The Bruins begin another back-to-back tonight, and have another three-in-four nights stretch, with the Ducks visiting Boston on Thursday and the Bruins heading to face the Islanders on Saturday. ... The Penguins have won the last six regular-season meetings between the teams, and the Bruins are 1-7-1 in their last nine regular-season games against Pittsburgh. ... The Penguins are 6-1 when scoring the opening goal of a game. They are 2-3 when they don't. ... Pittsburgh has lost its last two consecutive games at Consol Energy Center, but is 23-6 in its last 29 games here. ... Bruins wing Loui Eriksson remains out with a concussion."

     

    Marchand needs a big performance, he's just due for a pesty-multi-point night!

    Be playoff Marc-Andre Fluery LoL

    Re: Game 11: Bruins at Penguins - Gameday Thread

    The Pens will be a very hungry team and full of motivation for this game. Bruins have to stay out of the penalty box. If the Devils scored 4 powerplay goals on the Bruins, I would hate to see what the Pens powerplay will do. On the flip side, Im very curious to see how the Bruins respond after that disappointing loss to the Devils on Saturday in which they basically gave the game away.

    The Bruins are a mature team in the sense they know what they are capable of especially in light of the last game vs. NJ.  They win tonight.

    Pens injuries are worse. Bruins have had more rest and are motivated by a brutal loss last game. With sufficient effort, should be a win for Boston.

     

    GO BRUINS!

    Score first and place the weight of doubt in the minds of Fleury and his mates that he's gonna be shaky.

    Shots 13-6 in favor of the Pens. Not great but not terrible.

    The quality of the chances is what makes it bad... Malkin burned Krug and Seides for breakaways and only Rask saved us from being down 2-0 (and there were others!)
