Pregame vs Pens: What's At Stake, Emotional Battle, Miller Filling In

BOSTON, MA - The Bruins host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight at TD Garden in the third and find matchup between the two Eastern Conference rivals this season.

The series is tied, with the Pens picking up a 3-2 win at home in October. The Bruins earned a 4-3 overtime win on November 25 at TD Garden, thanks to Torey Krug’s game-winner after Sidney Crosby had scored with just 0.3 left in regulation to tie it up.

"Obviously playing each other last year in the Eastern Conference Finals and the last couple of years, we’ve always been right up there together in the standings. So they always end up being close games, big games, tough games for both teams and we shouldn’t expect anything different here tonight."

Johnny Boychuk Cleared to Fly Back with Team

MONTREAL, QC - For the fourth time this season, the Bruins had to play with a defenseman down.

Johnny Boychuk left the game 4:28 into the first period on Thursday night at the Bell Centre, with the Bruins taking on the Canadiens.

After a collision into the boards behind the Montreal goal following a hit by Max Pacioretty, Boychuk was slow to get his bearings.

It wasn’t so much the hit, on which Pacioretty was assessed a minor penalty for boarding, as it was the way Boychuk went awkwardly into the boards.

“I don’t know exactly how much time and all that stuff but the good news is he’s coming back with us tonight and then he’ll be reassessed by our doctors back in Boston.”

Home Cookin' Helps Bruins Find Their Way

BOSTON, MA - Call off the search party.

With all of the talk around the Boston Bruins trying to “find their game” heading into a five-game homestand at TD Garden, it appears that the comforts of home have helped the cause.

The Bruins picked up nine of a possible 10 points and have won four straight heading on a three-game road swing that begins in Ottawa on Friday night.

"Nine out of 10 points is something certainly to be happy with. And now we have to bring our game on the road and we have three tough road games coming up."

Bruins Take "Step Forward"

BOSTON, MA - The Bruins snapped their two-game losing streak Thursday night, and a stretch of four losses in five games, with a 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers at TD Garden.

They didn’t necessarily have their strongest start, in which Head Coach Claude Julien was looking for their “identity” right from the drop of the puck.

But as the 60 minutes progressed, they began to find it.

"I think we have a really strong group. We have a lot of leaders on this team—guys that have been in similar situations. You know that the only way to get out of it is by taking small steps forward."
