It's possible that the situation could have been more dire for the Penguins. It's just hard to imagine how. They were trying to protect a 3-2 lead over Carolina with a little more than three minutes left when their best defensive center, Jordan Staal, left the game after being struck in the face with a puck. That was bad.

Streaking Bruins will be a good measuring stick

Seems like almost every time the Penguins are preparing to play a game these days, a coach or player -- or both -- suggests that facing them will provide a good "measuring stick" for his club. Makes sense. The Penguins have hovered near the top of the league standings in recent years, won a Stanley Cup in 2009 and employ some of the game's most gifted individuals.
