Home team Bruins are struggling with injuries. Long term absentee Zdeno Chara was joined by Marchand and McQuaid in the injury list. Also Krejci and Kelly are questionable after missing Boston's previous game. Pittsburgh come to this game with full roster and heavy offensive arsenal.
Only way Boston can achieve something from this game is through yet another great performance from their goalie Rask. Last week he single-handedly stole the victory from St Louis when Boston was outshot 33-17 at home. Those 17 shots were the lowest amount this season for Boston.
