Boston Bruins (16-7-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (16-7-4)
TV: ROOT, NESN
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
The defending Stanley Cup champions roll into Pittsburgh for their first meeting with the Penguins this season. The Bruins are as hot as it gets right now. They have only lost once in their last 14 games. That included a 10-game winning streak. They've also won their last three straight. This will be two of the top teams in the East going at it and quite the test for the Penguins.
Both Kris Letang and Zbynek Michalek have concussions. Deryk Engelland is day-to-day. Alexandre Picard has been called up.
How many times will we hear about Matt Cooke tonight?
Season Series: 0-0-0.
Last meeting that counted: March 5, 2011. Penguins won 3-2 [OT].
What we said in our recap:
The Pens took the early punches from the Bruins. Then they punched back. Then they fell down. Then they got up and knocked the Bru...

Tyler Seguin was scratched for the Bruins game after missing a team breakfast and meeting. The Bruins also had their streak snapped.
Let’s get one thing straight before you complain about the title; I effing love Brad Marchand’s game. He brings something to the Bruins that they have lacked for years. The ability to combine legit skill with being an instigator and general pest on the ice is a quality that this team desperately lacked for pretty [...]
Each member of the Bruins is willing to step up for his teammates, so it isn't really too surprising to see Gregory Campbell step up in Tim Thomas' defense against the Penguins on Monday night. In fact, Campbell's second goal of the season, which came in the second period, is probably the more surprising feat. Either way, it goes to show just what kind of player Campbell...
It had to end at some point, and trekking to Winnipeg to face a hungry Jets team in front of a rabid Manitoba crowd less than 24 hours after an emotional win in Pittsburgh was hardly a surprising scenario to bring about the end of the Bruins' 15-game point streak. The Bruins dropped a 2-1 decision to the Jets in their first visit to Winnipeg in nearly 16 years, and no one in...
Don't enjoy that Pittsburgh victory for to long folks, the Bruins are back on the ice tonight as they take on the Atlantipeg Trashets. Before I get rolling, I want to make something clear. There are tons of people who are on the Twitter machine claiming they've been Jets fans "forever". If that's the case, then you're now a fan of the Phoenix Coyotes. The...
High-scoring defenseman Kris Letang missed three Penguins game with concussion-like symptoms. Finally the team got around to diagnosing him with a concussion and placed him under the league’s protocol for such injuries. As Pens fans learned with the long-running Sidney Crosby saga, Letang now faces an uncertain immediate future.So does defenseman Zbynek Michalek, who was also diagnosed...
The Bruins will face one of their biggest tests of the season as they take on Sidney Crosby and Penguins in Pittsburgh for a showdown of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference on Monday. "I think it's exciting to be able to play a game like this against a team that's extremely good," Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after his club's morning skate...
Penguins center Sidney Crosby did not skate with his teammates today at practice at Consol Energy Center after colliding with teammate Chris Kunitz in the third period of a 3-1 loss to the Boston Bruins last night.
In the third period of the Boston Bruins' 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night, Evgeni Malkin avoided a Zdeno Chara hit and then skated right into a helmet-to-helmet check by Daniel Paille.
Were this the National Football League, this would have earned a personal foul for unnecessary roughness. Thankfully, we're the NHL:

Yesterday wasn’t the first time Tyler Seguin has missed a team meeting. But being a repeat offender cost him a chance to play.
A friend passed this along. Pretty interesting read.

The Penguins and Bruins, who were separated by just 3 points at the top of the Eastern Conference coming into tonight, met at the Consol Energy Center in what was supposed to be an epic clash of two of the league’s best. Unfortunately for the Penguins they were never really able to get to their game and when they did, Tim Thomas was there to slam the door on them.
Boston improves to 14-0-1 in its last 15 games by dominating Eastern Conference-leading Pittsburgh.PITTSBURGH — Gregory Campbell, Benoit Pouliot and Tyler Seguin scored, Tim Thomas stopped 45 shots, and the surging Boston Bruins kept rolling with a 3-1 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night.

Whatâs the over/under on when Jordan Staal takes off the visor he wore during Mondayâs game-day skate? I think he'll get rid of it during the first period intermission.
Itâs great hearing that Staal took part in practice Monday. The Pens...
