Two of the top teams in the NHL and East Division will battle it out for the second time in three days Thursday as the Pittsburgh Penguins face off against the Boston Bruins.
Boston won a hard fought overtime battle 3-2 on Tuesday to keep the Penguins winless this season away from home.
The Bruins look to break their tie with the Penguins for the second spot in the East Division. Boston dominated the faceoffs Tuesday against Pittsburgh (44-66).
The Bruins have done a good job this season of killing and converting penalties. Boston was 6-for-6 in killing penalties Tuesday and allow just 32.8 shots on goal this season.
Boston also ranks fifth in the NHL in power play percentage and is first in the league in face off percentage. This has made up for them being 22nd in goals scored per game.
The Bruins have been receiving excellent goaltending from Tuukka Rask and Jaroslav Halak. Boston is giving up only 2.00 goals per game, which is third best in the NHL.
Pittsburgh is currently tied for second in the East Division behind the Capitals. Tristan Jarry turned in his best game of the season for Pittsburgh at the net, saving 33 of the 36 shots that came his way.
The Penguins will need more consistent production out of their defense and Jarry if they are to contend this season. The Penguins rank 28th in the league in goals against at 3.71 a game.

I like Boston to sweep this back-to-back. I’m not buying into this Pittsburgh team, especially with the inconsistent goalkeeping of Jarry. Boston has also played very well this year at home.
