Pittsburgh is a city that equals Boston in tougness, grit, and strength. It reflects in the rink. For the first time this season the Bruins go up against Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh is a top heavy team with elite NHL star power. Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are the centerpoint of the team and among the players that represent the league. Ask a band wagon fan or a "casual" fan who the best player in the NHL is and they'll riffle off Crosby almost immediately. Both Crosby and Malkin have faced injury though. Crosby has dealt with concussions and Malkin is out 1-2 weeks with an upper body injury.
So far this season Pittsburgh is where you would expecct them to be, first. At 18-8 the Penguins are first in the Atlantic Conference. In the Eastern Conference the Penguins are third, one point behind the Bruins, who are one point behind the Canadians. This is what makes this game so important.
