The Bruins will look for their third straight win tomorrow afternoon when they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Penguins. The Pens have taken points out of their last 9 games (7-0-2), but have lost their last two contests in the shootout.

Just who are these Penguins you speak of?
Pittsburgh Penguins 36-26-8 (80 pts); 3rd in Atlantic, 6th in East
