Game Day Thread: Penguins at Bruins

Embed from Getty Images

The Penguins are the visiting team in what is being called a “measuring stick game” on the way to the playoffs. Tonight’s Bruins lineup will have some more of the pieces obtained by the trade deadline – Brian Gionta and Nick Holden – as they face the team that pulled off a complicated three-team trade to get center Derick Brassard. So there’s no better time to see how your team matches up against a perennial powerhouse that’s loaded up.

This is the last game of the season series between the two teams; the Bruins won the first one in November 4-3 and the Pens held on to win the second one in overtime in January.

The Penguins are currently missing their starting goalie, Matt Murray, who is out indefinitely with a concussion.

Tommy Wingels is definitely a kid who would have a crush on Clarissa (who, in fact, Explains It All).

There is no universe in which that’s a penalty by Krug, and even less of one where it’s interference.
Geez.

He skated near someone and apparently startled them. Apparently that’s a minor now.
