Penguins Game Day 44 - vs. Boston Bruins

 Boston Bruins

7:30 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

Boston is quickly becoming a team that I hate. Along the lines of Montreal it is just comical that the Bruins think they are the toast of the NHL because they are one of the "Original Six". What a joke.

I guess Marc Savard is going to be playing against Matt Cooke tonight. I hope Cooke lays him out.

I continue to wonder how people complain when Savard has had numerous concussions, no kidding the more he gets the longer he will be out. Is it really that hard to grasp the concept that the more concussions you get the more likely you are to get another one.

I guess deadspin wrote an article about how it is convenient that Bing can speak out now, but not when Cooke made the hit on Savard. (I will not link the deadspin article because I will not support them getting page hits) A quick 15 second search of google should give you the links to where Crosby talks and gives quotes abotu the Savard hit. Glad the crack team over at that joke blog took the time to do ANY research. Hacks.

The Penguins have lost their last two and four of their last five. Not that great but you have these types of things with every team, lucky for the Penguins that they had that huge winning streak a little while back.

Tim Thomas is the best in the league, numbers wise, so it should be a good game. MAF should show up and he can down the Bruins.
