The fourth-place Boston Bruins (18-9-5, 41 pts, .641 points percentage) will try to continue their home dominance against and gain points on the third-place Pittsburgh Penguins (23-11-2, 48 pts, .667 points percentage) in the first game of a two-game set (Saturday 1 PM ET) against Sidney Crosby and the Pens at TD Garden.
Can the Boston Bruins build off their 5-4 shootout win over the New Jersey Devils Tuesday?
To do that they will need more than just the veteran leadership core to step up and capitalize on a depleted Penguins team up the middle.
