A big Saturday night game as the Penguins visit the Bruins in Boston. At this point, the team looks more like WBS than Pittsburgh.
Pascal Dupuis, Brooks Orpik and Harry Zolnierczyk all skated with the team today. Sidney Crosby and James Neal did not skate, but they're healthy. Dupuis will be a game-time decision and Dan Bylsma says that Dupuis will decide if he can play tonight. We already know that Evgeni Malkin won't be playing, as he didn't travel with the team.
For the Bruins, Johnny Boychuk has a back sprain and will be out for three to seven days. Adam McQuaid will be out as well.
The lines will depend on Dupuis playing or not, but here are the Pittsburgh Penguins lines via Daily Faceoff without Dupuis. It's not pretty.
Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Joe Vitale
Jayson Megna – Jussi Jokinen – James Neal
Chris Conner – Brandon Sutter – Zach Sill
Craig Adams – Harry Zolnierczyk – Chuck Kobasew
Deryk Engelland – Brooks Orpik
That's a little depressing.
Boston Bruins lines via Daily Faceoff:
Milan Lucic – David Krejci – Jarome Iginla
Brad Marchand – Patrice Bergeron – Loui Eriksson
Carl Soderberg – Chris Kelly – Reilly Smith
Daniel Paille – Gregory Campbell – Shawn Thornton
Zdeno Chara – Dougie Hamilton
Dennis Seidenberg – Torey Krug
Matt Bartkowski – Kevan Miller
