PITTSBURGH, PA - The B’s will be back at it tonight against Pittsburgh at the CONSOL Energy Center, following their 3-2 come-from-behind shootout win over the Senators. They did not skate this morning and will head to the arena later today before the second game of their back-to-back.
Pittsburgh is on a five-game winning streak and hold an 18-8-0 record this season. During the run, the Penguins have scored an NHL-best 26 goals (tied with Montreal), putting up a 5.2 goals-per-game average in March. The B’s will have their hands full with Pittsburgh’s steady offense, that sees Sidney Crosby (3-11=14), Chris Kunitz (8-4=12) and Kris Letang (0-11=11) as the top three leading scorers in March among all NHL players.
The Pens lines during morning skate rushes are listed below, in the absence of Malkin (who is out 1-2 weeks with an upper-body injury), though Evgeni did skate on his own today.
Projected lineup for Pens:
Pens Head Coach Dan Bylsma said his lineup will be a game-time decision, but confirmed that Marc-Andre Fleury will be in goal against Boston.
