PITTSBURGH PENGUINS VS BOSTON BRUINS
PPG PAINTS ARENA – PITTSBURGH, PA
7:30 PM EST. NBCSN
Welcome to another addition of Pittsburgh Penguins: Are they good? Who the hell knows! Let’s find out! Brought to you by JD Salinger.
Before I get into this one grant me a brief moment to again bitch about the schedule.
Somehow, in January, over 3 months into the season the Pens have somehow played 4 more games than the Bruins. Real bang-up job the NHL does over there. I know there’s a lot more that goes into this, but when you couple it with the the past couple of post-seasons the Pens have had, I dunno man, seems shitty.
Of all the years to skip the Olympics too. The Pens, more than anyone, sure could use that Olympic break to hit reset, get healthy, and double up for a stretch run. But, hey, Mark Arcobello. lol
Anyways, the Bruins scored a touchdown on the Canes last night. Bergeron did a thing.
700th career point ✔️
Second career hat trick ✔️
Club record-tying four goals ✔️
Career-high five points. ✔️

For the last two or three weeks the Pens have teased coming out of their funk and putting together a run. But every good sign was hastily followed by a turd sandwich. I’m really hoping the Pens don’t turd sandwich tonight. Even just a point, even one they don’t deserve would go a long way to starting to string something together.
There’s a lot of moving pieces right now. I’m willing to be a Sprong-Crosby-Simon line doesn’t exactly light up the post-season (or even make it to a post-season). But, the Pens played a good game on the Isle and reinforcements are coming…

Rooweedle was back today too.
I guess, I just want to start having fun with this team again. Friday night was fun. Make this one fun too Pens. Give us some hope.
