Preview:

Andrew Ference isn't cleared to play yet, so it's looking like we'll see the same defensive pairs from the Bruins as during game five against the Rangers.

The Bruins are the most serious challenge the Penguins have had to face this playoffs. After dispatching the upstart Islanders and the Senators -- two teams that definitely warranted playoff spots, but never really stood a chance against the juggernaut Penguins -- Pittsburgh is finally faced with the challenge of taking down a team that's playoff-hardened.

We all know the storylines; Iginla, Cooke, Crosby, Malkin, Jagr. We all also know that we're all tired of the storylines. Let's just watch our team play some hockey and hopefully kick some ass tonight.

First goal predictions, anyone?
