The Pittsburgh Penguins, as the days and weeks keep passing, look more and more like they are a big time Stanley Cup contender, as they looked as if they were a bit of an afterthought in terms of the Stanley Cup just a few months ago, but they are forcing the NHL to be on notice with their recent performances, as they look like a well oiled machine.
The Boston Bruins were not at all bad in that last game against the Sabres, as they were dominant for large parts of that game, but were just not efficient enough in front of goal and that ended up costing them in the end.
Brad Marchand has been a central force for this team, as he is having one of his better season in recent memory scoring 25 goals and adding on 32 assists to bring his season point total to 57. Those numbers are likely to only keep getting better now that he has David Pastrnak back from injury and back on the Bruins first line.
The defense and goal-tending has also been quite solid this year only giving up 2.50 goals per game and if they are going to make a deep run this year it is likely to be because of their excellent blue line and goalkeeping.
The Pittsburgh Penguins are 6 and 2 in their last 8 games and although they are getting important points at a critical stage of the season, it may be a bit tough to decide just how good this team is, as they have beat up on seriously weak competition as of late and the Bruins represent a big step up in class compared to what they have been used to playing over the last couple weeks.
The Penguins are a little more offensively minded then the visitors here as they score 3.44 goals per game with a lot of that offense being created by their future hall of famer Sidney Crosby who now has 20 goals and 35 assists in what is already a very impressive campaign.

Free Boston Bruins vs. Pittsburgh Penguins NHL Prediction:
The Boston Bruins were just beaten by the Buffalo Sabres in what was a huge game for them, and I see the Bruins bouncing back here, as I think they are slightly better then the Penguins right now and I think they have the edge between the goalies as well.
