Notables

* The Penguins close out their 11th set of back-to-backs tonight against Boston. They are coming off a 4-1 setback to the Blue Jackets last night in Columbus. The loss ended Pittsburgh's streak of 6-straight games earning at least one point.

* Meanwhile, the Bruins - who defeated the Ottawa Senators last night in Boston - enter tonight having earned at least one point in 19-straight games, going 15-0-4 over that span. Their last regulation loss was to the New York Rangers on Jan. 19.

* The Penguins have a 4-game home winning streak against the Bruins and are 8-2-1 in their past 11 home contests against Boston. Meanwhile, the Bruins are 5-0-2 in their last 7 road games and 8-1-2 in their last 11.

* Evgeni Malkin, who needs 2 points to reach 1,000 for his career, has a 6-game point streak against the Bruins (3G-7AA-10PTS). His linemate Phil Kessel, who now owns sole possession of the 2nd-longest consecutive games played streak in team history (314), has a 7-game point streak against Boston (5G-4A-9PTS).

* The Bruins have found success despite being without forward David Pastrnak, who has missed the last 12 games due to injury. Linemates Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron have been stepping up offensively, as both players enter tonight on 6-game point streaks.

* With Tuukka Rask playing on Saturday, Jaroslav Halak will likely get the nod tonight. He is 5-0-2 in his last 7 games with a 1.77 GAA and .941 SVPT.
