Tonight’s slate:
Maple Leafs @ Rangers, 7:00 ET
Bruins @ Penguins, 7:00
Lightning @ Senators, 7:30
Capitals @ Panthers, 7:30
Coyotes @ Blackhawks, 8:00

Game of the night:
Boston Bruins @ Pittsburgh Penguins
7:00 ET… TV: Local Networks

Records:
Overall: Bruins (16-7-1) … Penguins (16-7-4)
Away/Home: Bruins (6-2-0) … Penguins (8-1-2)
Last 10: Bruins (9-0-1) … Penguins (6-3-1)
Season Series (10/11): Tied 2-2

Players to watch:
BOS- Zdeno Chara
Chara is a +7 in the last three games, but will be put to the test tonight against Crosby and company.
PIT- James Neal
Neal hasn’t scored in two games, which means he’s due. Neal has 11 goals in 11 home games this year.

Starting goaltenders:
BOS- Tim Thomas (2011-12 stats: 12-4-0, 1.93 GAA)
PIT- Marc-Andre Fleury (2011-12 stats: 14-4-2, 2.11 GAA)

Injury report:
BOS- None
PIT- Jordan Staal (face, probable), Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek (head/concussion, doubtful), Dustin Jeffrey (knee, out), Ben Lovejoy (wrist, out)

Game thoughts:
The red-hot Bruins enter the Steel City to take on the conference-leading Penguins. We all know the B’s haven’t lost in regulation since October, but they also grabbed wins in both road games last year in Pittsburgh. That adds on to the tough task at hand for Dan Bylsma, who will likely be without Letang and Michalek once again. Boston is just too good right now, even for the high-powered Pens. Nonetheless, it should be a great game.
Prediction: Bruins 4, Penguins 3 (OT)

The rest of today’s predictions:
Rangers over Maple Leafs
Lightning over Senators
Capitals over Panthers
Blackhawks over Coyotes
