Another bounce-back game for the Bruins tonight. Losses to Montreal always leave a nasty taste in one's mouth; what better way to wash it out than with a beatdown of another team we hate?
Johnny Boychuk, as posted previously, won't be out for too long, but his injury means Kevan Miller gets the nod tonight, again. On the Pens' side, Marc-Andre Fleury will be in net; Evgeni Malkin will remain out of the lineup. Andrew Ebbett broke his ankle against the Sharks on Thursday; he will be replaced by Harry Zolniercyzk. Pascal Dupuis, too, is questionable.
The Bruins lineup remains unchanged aside from Boychuk's absence and Miller's call-up.
Man this game was cool.
