Boston Bruins (16-7-1, 33 points) at Pittsburgh Penguins (16-7-4, 36 points)
Wow - what a year Tyler is having so far. His rookie card has been selling for north of $60 ungraded.
Why does it matter?
On October 29th, the Bruins lost the back end of a home and home with the Habs, falling to 3-7. Since that time, they are 13-0-1. That's right - no regulations losses during the month of November. This is the biggest challenge the Pens have faced all season.
What has been happening lately?

Bruins - They just completed a home and home sweep of the Leafs, winning the games by three goals each time.
