The Boston Bruins visit the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night (preview) sitting three points out of the Eastern Conference lead with three games in-hand. They're 9-0-1 in their last 10 games; the Penguins are 5-1-1 since Sidney Crosby graced the NHL with his presence.
Patrice Bergeron of the Bruins is one of Crosby's friends and, as Michael Farber wrote for SI, a fellow member of the Brotherhood of the Concussion. Bergeron missed close to a year after a concussion on Oct. 27, 2007; he's been asked on a dozen occasions about Crosby's rehab and return to the NHL. Via Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com:

For years, Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin battled each other in a tense rivalry as the league's two best forwards. They entered the NHL in the same year and have been linked ever since. But Ovechkin isn't playing at the same level he used to, and Crosby doesn't appear to have a legitimate rival anymore to measure himself against and challenge him for the claim as the...
Tyler Seguin and Patrice Bergeron have the potential to combine for plenty of goals over the course of their careers. But few might be as textbook as their power-play tally on Monday night in Pittsburgh. With a 2-0 lead, Bergeron carried the puck into the zone. After splitting the defense, he delivered a pass that was right on the tape of Seguin's stick, and the 19-year-old didn...

...not really, but I have your attention, right?
Controversy is the fuel for hockey media in a day and age where the power that is Twitter blows every little thing up and out of proportion. "Zdeno Chara should be charged for murder!" Views. "The Montreal Canadiens are a joke!" More readers. "Sidney Crosby isn't that good!"...
Before I get into this, let me state that Jon is a big Pens fan, so I hope that writing this makes him hate me today. I also stole the preview from Pizz because I was challenged to drink my haterade. Consider it drank. Now, the Bruins are heading to Pittsburgh to face off against Sidney Crosby and the high-flying Pens. It's a shame that this game has to be on NESN because I was...
