Penguins face Bruins in Wednesday Night Rivalry
NHL.com's John Kreiser provides the tale of the tape as the Boston Bruins visit the Pittsburgh Penguins in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game.

The Boston Bruins make their only trip of the season to Consol Energy Center for this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game against the Pittsburgh Penguins (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, RDS2). The Penguins have won the past six regular-season games between the teams, but they're meeting for the first time since the Bruins polished off a sweep of the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final in June.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
