Long the Eastern Conference pace-setter, Boston appeared to go through some mid-season doldrums, going just 4-8-2 from February 7th to March 10th. Despite the tough times the Bruins are still in first place in the Conference and they've won their last two games.
Like the Penguins, this game will make 3 games in 4 days for the B's, so both teams ought to be equally worn out.
Manny Fernandez, who's been on a slump lately is expected to be in the nets for Boston. Manny is 0-3-2 in his past five starts--which dates back to Feb 7th, not coincendentally the beginning of Boston's slide--and has surrendered 4 goals in four of the five games. Fernandez's save percentage in those five games is a lackluster 86.7%.
