Bruins @ Penguins: Preview; Betting Odds And Picks



Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins will need to be in Stanley Cup playoff mode when they play Sidney Crosby and the Penguins in Pittsburgh tonight.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are in the midst of a late-season playoff push and pull three points ahead of the Washington Capitals for the final Eastern Conference wild card slot with a win and a loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning by the Capitals. The Penguins come into this game having not lost in regulation (7-0-3) in their last ten games. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby is making a late-season push into the Hart Trophy conversation with nine goals and 17 assists since the March 8 NHL Trade Deadline.

“We have to match their desperation,” Boston Bruins defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk said following the Bruins’ game-day skate in Pittsburgh on Saturday morning. “It gives us a good idea of what playoff hockey’s gonna be like in a couple of days. I think it allows us to hopefully get to our game and see that intensity level.”
