First things first: Matt D'Agostini is now a Penguin. Matt D'Agostini used to be on the Blues. I once saw him at a Cardinals game. The Cardinals are now playing the Red Sox. INCEPTION.
The Penguins tonight are without Chuck Kobasew, Beau Bennett, James Neal, and Rob Scuderi. Scuderi and Kobasew were injured in the Penguins' most recent game, Scuderi with a broken ankle.
By all accounts, tonight should be a huge draw of a game. It's Eastern Conference Finals revenge for Pittsburgh, another change for the Bruins to beat the Penguins down after their laughable final hurdle to the Stanley Cup Finals last year. Instead, they're playing second fiddle to the Red Sox, who are in a game six against the St. Louis Cardinals tonight, don't you know.
The Bruins are icing the same lineup as they did against New Jersey, and Tuukka Rask will face off against Marc-Andre Fleury. This is going to be a fun game - It's Iginla's return to Pittsburgh, it's the Bruins' chance to break a six-game regular season losing streak against the Penguins, and a chance to leapfrog the Penguins into a higher berth in the Conference.
this is the best.
