Bruins Vs. Penguins: Pens Struggling To Find Offense

The Bruins visit CONSOL Energy Center and the Sidney Crosby-less Penguins tonight at 7:30. Crosby is out with a concussion and the Penguins have struggled to score in his absence. In an attempt to revive their offense and cover for Crosby and Arron Asham (who is expected to be out with illness), the Penguins have recalled Dustin Jeffrey, who has a goal and an assist in three games with the Pens this year.

The Bruins are tied with the Montreal Canadiens at the top of the Northeast Division, but they're 1-1-3 in their last five games, with overtime losses against the Thrashers, Sabres and Canadiens and a loss to the Wild. The two teams' last matchup featured the Pens' epic third-period collapse, in which the Bruins scored five goals. It might not be wise to expect such a high-scoring game tonight, though, and that goes for either team. The Pens haven't done much offensively in Crosby's absence, and the Bruins are struggling to get things done on the power play.
