It is Wednesday Night Rivalry on NBCSN as the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins square off and NHL Live, at 5 p.m. ET on NHL Network, will preview this rematch of last season's Eastern Conference Final. We'll check in at Consol Energy Center and talk to analyst Pierre McGuire who will be "Inside The Glass" for the game. NHL Network insider Darren Dreger will also join the program to provide the latest buzz around the NHL.
Also, we'll begin our celebration of #HockeyHalloween with a pumpkin carver live in the NHL Store and give a spooky edition of the EJ5.
