Penguins face Bruins in Wednesday Night Rivalry'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

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
