Pittsburgh Penguins at Boston Bruins - 10/20/08
From TD Banknorth Garden
Preview: MT mixed things up against the Leafs and Crosby and Malkin had 4 point nights. Dupuis is looking good so far this season, taking advantage of some opportunities he would have missed last year. Look for the Malkin-Crosby-Dupuis line to rack up some points tonight against Tim Thomas. Cooke is still hurt and did not make the trip, so Bissonnette will play on the fourth line. Dany Sabourin starts in net for the Penguins, giving Fleury some deserved rest after a stellar start to the season.
The Penguins have had some trouble with the Bruins in the past, especially stopping Marc Savard. On the plus side, the Bruins have generated very few PP opportunities this year, and the Penguins PK has been up to the task. The Boston D men like to play forward on the PP which could generate some SH opportunities for the struggling Jordan Staal.

Before you ask: Rene Rancourt is a man. He likes to fist-pump after the anthem. Whatev.
The only fist pump that matters:
