This game is on every channel. </in-depth analysis>
Season Series: 2-1-0.
Last meeting that counted: March 11, 2012. Penguins won 5-2.
What we said in our recap:
This game was embarrassing for the Bruins. A few of their players injured themselves out of their own stupidity. Tim Thomas looked like a complete joke. The defending champions had no answer for the hottest team in the NHL.
Speaking of which, the Pens are like 21-4-something in their last however many games that stat is. That is unrealistic. The top seed in the Eastern Conference, seemingly unattainable when the calendar flipped to 2012, is easily with the Pens' grasp.
Or maybe not...

What they're saying:
Bruins and Penguins meet up for the 4th and final time tonight. Despite having locked up their playoff spots, both teams have something to play for tonight. Penguins are looking to gain home ice advantage in their near-guaranteed match up against Filthadelphia. Bruins on the other hand are just looking to carry some momentum into the playoffs after a lackluster couple of months. Good to see them return to form recently, you might say that they're BAAAACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIIIIIIIN!!
