NHL Live previews Bruins-Penguins on Rivalry Night

by Matt Sitkoff /

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 joining us is the League's leading goal scorer, Alexander Steen of the St. Louis Blues. Steen has goals in nine of 10 games and 11 on the season after scoring eight in 40 games last year and added to the Blues' League-best power play Tuesday with his game-winning goal against the Winnipeg Jets.

Trailing Steen by two goals and sitting in second in the NHL in points is Phil Kessel, whose Toronto Maple Leafs continue their Western Canadian road trip in Calgary. We'll preview the matchup as Kessel looks to continue his torrid pace with 10 points in his last four games.

In addition, we'll begin our celebration of #HockeyHalloween with a pumpkin carver live in the NHL Store and give a spooky edition of the EJ5.
