The Pittsburgh Penguins headed to Boston to take on the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins in the hopes of picking up their ninth win in their last eleven games. The teams were tied up with no goals after the first period, but the Penguins struck early in the second period when Evgeni Malkin picked up his 28th goal of the season on a power play, assisted by Chris Kunitz and James Neal.
After two periods of play the Penguins enter the final period with a 1-0 lead over the Bruins. Boston leads the game in shots on goal with 20 and have 6 take aways, but they haven't been able to get a puck past Marc-Andre Fleury so far on the day.
