    (14-7-4) :bruins
    @ :pens (17-9-1)

    PPG Paints Arena, 1001 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA


    7 p.m. ET; SNE, SNO, ATTSN-PT, NESN, NHL.TV

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Last time around - 28th January 2021 we lost 1-4 in Boston.

    We are on a 5 game winning streak whilst Boston are very up and down right now, 2 wins in their last 5 and only 4 wins in their last 10. So all that means we are probably going to get the shit kicked out of us :laugh:

    Geno is leading the way with 8 points from the last 5 games (3G 5A)

    Boston have FaceLicker scoring 7 points (2G 5A)

    I don't hold out much hope for our PP tonight (unless some miracle occurred and we will play to a position of strength in that department) as Boston is 1st in penalty killing @ 89.4% and we suck at 23rd @ 18.4% for the PP

    We are also going to need to be on point for faceoffs as again, Boston leads the way with 56.1% of all draws won. We suck @ 48.6%

    2 points tonight will give us a little breathing space in 3rd place (would take us to 4 points over Boston) We are also currently 6 points ahead of the orange shite to the east.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Projected line-ups:

    Boston

    Marchand - Bergeron - Pastrnak
    DeBrusk - Krejci - Smith
    Ritchie - Coyle - Bjork
    Frederic - Kuraly - Kuhlman

    Grzelcyk - McAvoy
    Zboril - Clifton
    Tinordi - Kampfer

    Halak
    Vladar

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Pittsburgh

    Jake - Sid - Rusty
    Krappy - Geno - Kappy
    ZAR - Teddy - Tanev
    Sceviour - Jankowski - Angello

    Dumo - Letang
    Matheson - Ceci
    Useless streak of piss - Ruhwedel

    Jarry
    DeSmith

    My favorite part about visiting Boston is always watching people pretend they like Sam Adams.

    Had the exact same thought myself. Hope we're both proven wrong, but not going to bet on it!

    Will be happy w/ a split, but the way Boston has been playing, we really should do better than that

    Boston 1) has much better special teams, both PP and Pk, than the Pens and 2) better goaltending...Halak has put up crazy good #s...he’s in the top 10 in GAA and save % among goalies who have started 10 or more games this season...if Boston outworks us again like they did in Boston, we can forget winning either of these two games...

    I got no beef with cheap beers. Sometimes you want to drink weird local swill with your dad. (Lookin' at you Iron City and Genesee Cream Ale!)

    But Sam just doesn't have anything going for it-- it's pricey, even in Boston, it's not particularly good, and the seasonal beers all taste like someone dumped a packet of cheap knock off Kool Aid into the vat at the brewery. And there's legitimately awesome beers in Mass, so I just don't get it. :dunno:

    Gotta get the two points tonight. We generally struggle on the 2hd of back to backs. Tonight is a must win IMO.

    Bad part is that they aren’t playing Buffalo again and Philly and Boston still have 2 games in hand on the Pens. For all the ground “made up” up on the 5 game streak, it can all fall to shit again with two losses in the next two nights...

    Boston is coming off a 4-0 loss. Generally speaking good teams that lose big (four or more goals) are ultra tough to beat next time out. We're gonna have to play our best to beat these guys.

    3-2 Penguins. Our L1 is going to cancel out their L1. Malkin is going to put this team on his back like usual.

    I’m not cocky. This is a make or break week. But Philly is in a similar situation if they blow a couple games.

    But who wants to squeak in to the PO field as the fourth seed even if Philly loses its shit? If they can beat a Boston team convincingly, it’s a big confidence boost because this team has been a struggle for us...

    I hate playing the Bruins. They're the one top end team that I always assume a loss is coming. I'd feel better even against Tampa than the Bruins.

    Well that's crazy. TB would destroy us both. I'm just concerned that Boston lost their last game big.

    Well keep in mind that Boston hasn't won in Pittsburgh since about 2014. So...the Pens at least have a shot.
