So, this game starts at 7:30pm because of The Night You Love to Hate™ “Rivalry Night on NBCSNPDQASAPOMGWTFBBQ”. Yes, this is such a natural rivalry, this Penguins and Bruins matchup.

Cool story, and I think Chaplin did a better job overall of covering the game. You can go straight to the YouTube video here.
