Penguins (32-14-3) vs. Bruins (27-14-6)
PPG Paints Arena | Pittsburgh, PA
Tuesday, April 27 | 7:00PM Eastern
NESNplus | AT&T-PGH
The Penguins look to make it a perfect 5-game homestand in the homestretch against the Bruins on Tuesday night at PPG.
The Penguins took a trio of games against the Devils across 5 days, before predicating the back-end of a back-to-back with a stifling 1-0 dispatch of the B’s which was also the front-end of a 2-game series.
With the exception of the quagmire third period of the wild 7-6 win against the Devils last Tuesday, the Penguins have outscored their opponents 16-3 across those 3.66 (repeating of course) games.
The Penguins’ system the past few weeks:
The Penguins’ magic number to ensure a playoff berth is currently 4.

Congratulations to @PensJG and his wife Maddie on the birth of their first child!
Because Josh is on dad-duty, Hall-of-Famer Mike Lange will be stepping in to the radio booth to call tonight's game. Josh is expected to be back on Thursday.
