After three games against the New Jersey Devils, the Penguins hosted the Boston Bruins in Pittsburgh this afternoon.
The host (65 points) will have a chance to win first place in the Eastern Region, which has a total of 66 points in the Washington Capital Region.
Penguin captain Sidney Crosby scored the 55th point of the season on Saturday. Therefore, he made sure to average at least 1 point per game this season.
For the Bruins, the team was deprived of captain Patrice Bergeron, who was evaluated daily due to lower body injuries.
Since the start of the season, the 35-year-old Quebec has participated in every game he trains. In his absence, the Bears lost to the Buffalo Sabres 6-4 on Friday.
The day before, Bergeron flinched after blocking a shot from defender Rasmus Darling.
The Eastern Conference ranked fourth with 60 points, and the Bears tried to get close to the New York Islanders as third (63). Taylor Hall was acquired during the trade deadline, and he has turned the points table black in five of his last six games.
The Bruins have a 4-2-0 record against the Penguins this season.
