Losing to the Habs always sucks, but seeing Johnny Boychuk is 100x worse. Beside being a great human being with dreamy eyes, he's a beast on the blue line, and can take hits that would make other men's bones crumble to dust. So when you see him laying on the ice being put on a stretcher, you shit your pants.
What Happened Last Time: November 25, 2013 – Pens lost 4-3 in overtime [Our Recap]
The Pens snagged a point from the depths. When this long season reaches those final days in early April, remember this point.
Meanwhile, the Pens still have some bad habits. Hopefully, in April, we’ll remember these, too, and not still be talking about them.
Penguins Player(s) to Watch: Marc-Andre Fleury. The depleted Penguins line-up will need another big game from him.
Bruins Player(s) to Watch: Gregory Campbell, because he inspires us all every single day while also defining the spirit of an entire city.
