Bruins have what feels like their millionth back-to-back game in the past two months and yet another matinee game which the team has been awful at (4-7-2 this year). It really doesn't bold well stats wise for Boston, especially against a hot Penguin team that still doesn't have Sidney Crosby.Speaking of Crosby, he won't be suiting up against Boston. There was talk of it and then Crosby's head cleared up enough to remember what happened last time he took on resident goon David Krejci.Big question is who will be in net for Boston this afternoon? Timmy has played in eight straight games. We were really expecting the Bs to rest Timmy yesterday so he'd be ready to face the Penguins today but that didn't happen. So do the Bruins make it Turco Time against a well playing Penguins team or does Timmy play back-to-back games, his ninth straight game (fifth straight start). At this rate TImmy's gonna burn out by St. Paddy's Day.Poo-Poo Pouliot status is question...

  • Hopefully Turko can pick up the slack..Thomas is obviously getting tired and needs more time of..doesn't look as sharp..but also B's need to tighten up defensively..tough week coming up.

Penguins Proving to Bruins How Dangerous They Are With or Without Sidney Crosby (Video)

The Bruins have struggled this year in matinee games, but "struggle" doesn't do the first period of Sunday's game against the Penguins justice.

But do they need Sid the Kid to contend...

We weren't sure heading into Saturday's game whether Tim Thomas or Marty Turco would get the call in net for the Bruins.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is glad to worry about the team's netminder...

Pick Six: Saturday March 10/Sunday March 11

Is a Sidney Crosby return finally around the corner? Perhaps, but one player who has nearly the pedigree of Crosby has his own concussion issues, but is not receiving the attention that Sid the Kid is. I’ve included both players in my Pick Six for the weekend. But first, here’s what you need to know heading into the weekend. A total of 22 teams are in action on Saturday, while...

Crosby linemate options should be clear

We all know it's any day now we will witness the second coming of Sidney Crosby. But when 87 returns, who will be on his wings?Obviously the line of James Neal, Evgeni Malkin and Chris Kunitz has been one of, if not the top line in the NHL. Adding a player like Crosby into a line like that sounds promising, but it's the wrong move.Why would you want to break up the chemistry...

March Madness Striking Bruins, Penguins in Completely Different Fashions (Video)

If the NHL playoffs had a selection show, the Bruins would be getting an invite to the dance thanks to their Northeast Division lead.

With the New York Rangers struggling to find the consistency that made them so successful for much of the season, tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks will be a big test for the Blueshirts.
