Boston Bruins @ Pittsburgh Penguin

The Boston Bruins come to town tonight to face the Penguins. Hal Gill is set to be back in the line up tonight. That mean the Pens will dress 7 defenseman. The Pens will be putting Alex Goligoski in a forward position at time tonight to ensure everyone gets equal playing time, so the Parents don't riot in the stands after the game.

Sidney Crosby will be playing in his 250th game and Jordan Staal will be playing in his 200th game tonight in Pittsburgh.

General Manager Ray Shero along with the players have no complaints about Coach T according to the Post Gazette. "I have a lot of faith in this coaching staff, as I have since we grew together the first couple of years," Shero said. It's easy to blame the coaching staff for the way a team plays, just look at all the coaches that last no longer than a season, if that even. But I think coach T is the right man for the job.

The Pens just can't play very well in the month of December. It has been this way for a few seasons. January is usually the turn around month for the Pens.


The Boston Bruins have been the team in the East so far this season. They have been putting up impressive numbers so far this season. The Bruins have won 8 in a row and are coming off back to back road wins. Beating Carolina on Saturday night and Atlanta on Sunday night.

This team will be a good test for the Pens tonight, even though the Pens have been failing most of their test lately.

Lets see if the Pens can steal one tonight against a Bruins team that is tied for the league best with San Jose.

Go Pens
