Coming off a 3-0 shutout loss, the Penguins of Pittsburgh will look to get right back on that horse and grab a win at TD Garden in Boston.
The Bruins are coming off a win that broke a four-game losing streak, and the team will look to grab a second win in a row before the All-Star break hits.
The Penguins continue to sit atop the league in goals scored with 169 and are averaging 3.60 goals per contest. That average has propelled the team to 30 wins and, as long as that goal-scoring continues, many more wins in the future.
Sidney Crosby is continuing his amazing season by posting some fantastic numbers through 47 games. Crosby has 28 goals and 26 assists this season, including two goals and six assists over his last five games.
Center Evgeni Malkin has been wonderful this year, as well. He has 22 goals and 32 assists on the season, including four goals and four assists over his last five games.
Left winger Connor Sheary has come along nicely this season and has been a big contributor for Pittsburgh. He has 17 goals and 17 assists on the season, including six goals and three assists over his last five games. He has three multi-goal games over that span.
There’s nothing to nit-pick when it comes to this Pittsburgh offense and it’ll look to overwhelm the Bruins and pick up another win before the All-Star break.
With just four wins out of 12 games to start 2017, Boston is reeling and starting to be in danger of slipping out of an Atlantic Division playoff birth. Boston has to get things back on track and stay in the playoff hunt over the final 31 games.
The offense has had its struggles to start 2017 and currently sits 20th in the NHL in goals scored. The Bruins have 127 goals on the season.
The good news is that the Bruins have guys who can really score and get on hot streaks. Winger David Pastrnak has 20 goals and 16 assists. Over his last five games, he has a goal and two assists for Boston.
Fellow winger Brad Marchand has been playing great hockey as well. He has 19 goals and 28 assists this season. Over his last five games, he has two goals and two assists.
