Bruins travel to Pittsburgh to take on Penguins

The Bruins are in Pittsburgh to face the Penguins tonight at Mellon Arena. This is the second time that these two teams have met this week with the B's shutting out the Pens 3-0 on Tuesday night.

The Bruins have not allowed a goal in their last 2 games and will try for their third consecutive shutout tonight. While the Bruins have played well defensively, they have struggled to score goals as of late. Despite outshooting the Florida Panthers 40-23 on Thursday night and controlling the play for most of the game, the Bruins could not manage to get on the scoreboard and ultimately fell 1-0 in the shootout.

Meanwhile, the Penguins have hit a rough patch and are looking to snap a 4-game losing streak. The Pens could get some help tonight though as Evgeni Malkin (shoulder) is listed as a game-time decision and could return to the lineup tonight.
