Pittsburgh has been up and down this season and is having trouble in goal. It makes for an interesting game to make an NHL bet on at the Sbg sportsbook on Wednesday.
Recent Series History
The Bruins and Penguins have split their last ten meetings. They have not played since last season when the Penguins won 3-0 at Boston. The last time the teams played in Pittsburgh it was a 2-1 win for the Penguins. Both of those two games went under the total.
The Bruins will be without Marc Savard and David Krejic so they are hurting up the middle. Krejic has filled in well for Savard but with him out the Bruins could struggle. He had combined with Nathan Horton and Milan Lucic to form a line that has 13 goals and 18 assists in 11 games. Patrice Bergeron will probably move into the middle and center that line.
The Bruins were rolling along with Tim Thomas in goal and he was leading the league in goals against average. He was pulled last time out after allowing three goals against Washington on Friday. Tuukka Rask led the league in goals against average last season and he could get the start against the Penguins in this game. Pittsburgh has even more problems. Marc-Andre Fleury was rotten on Saturday against Phoenix and was pulled. Brent Johnson came in and played well. He is 6-1-1 with a 1.63 GAA this season. Fleury has really struggled but Johnson has an illness and may not play on Wednesday.
