8 a.m. ET: The Bruins exorcised the demons of one third-period meltdown on Saturday, and they’ll get the chance to do the same on Sunday.
The Bruins are back in Pittsburgh for a matinee tilt with the Penguins, less than a week after blowing a two-goal lead in the third period en route to losing 3-2 on Tuesday night. It won’t be easy, though, as just like Tuesday night, the Bruins will have to take down one of the NHL’s best teams on short rest.
The B’s quickly vacated TD Garden on Saturday afternoon after beating Washington 4-1, as the second half of the back-to-back in Pittsburgh marks the start of a four-game road trip for Boston. The Bruins have been very good in the first half of the dreaded back-to-backs, now 4-0-0 in the first games. The second, as you might expect, has given Boston some issue. The B’s are just 1-2-0 on the back end entering Sunday’s game.
Puck drop for the St. Patrick’s Day matinee in Pittsburgh is scheduled for 12:30 p.m.

BOSTON — Sometimes in sports, a celebration tells you more than just a bunch of grown men are happy to do have done their jobs. In some cases, it gives you an inside look as to how much pressure those same grown men can be under to do their job.

Thereâs no way for the Boston Bruins to exact revenge on the Washington Capitals for bouncing them out of the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs in overtime of Game 7 last spring, but Anton Khudobin the Black-and-Gold took to the Garden ice with the chance to continue the misery thatâs plagued Adam Oates and company in his first year behind the bench.
Sitting in relatively unfamiliar...

The Canadiens and Blackhawks are both atop...
