The Penguins are very likely going to shake their lines up tonight for game 3, so these lines will be updated before game time.

So here we are.

Remember the last Eastern Conference Final game at the TD Garden? Remember that sweet, sweet Krejci-to-Horton goal to make it 1-0 that sent Guy "James Bond Villain" Boucher and his team of merry minions packing home to Florida? Remember how explosively loud the Garden was for that game?

How amazing it is that we get to do it again two years later. It's been no time at all, it seems.

The Bruins have to just keep doing what they did in Pittsburgh. Keep the pedal to the metal, don't let up even the slightest, all those cliches. Continue shutting down Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin and Jarome Iginla -- those two top Pens lines which have no points through 120 minutes of play. It's a beautiful thing.

Game in 10 hours. Who's ready? First goal predictions, anyone?
