The Bruins will head to Pittsburgh looking to bounce back from a terrible loss on home ice to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night. Boston led 3-2 with under two minutes to go and allowed New Jersey to score twice before the end of regulation and steal two points from them. It wasn't the type of loss you'd expect to see from a Bruins club that is stout in their own zone under Claude Julien. They've had a few days to wash that one off and now they get a huge test in the Penguins, a team whose number they've had in recent years. Boston has been able to bully Pittsburgh, much like they do to a lot of teams, and minimize their elite talent. Both these teams are off to great starts this year and will get to play in prime time in front of a national television audience. After three consecutive losses the Penguins finally got back in the win column on Monday night in Carolina. Chris Kunitz broke a 1-1 tie in the second period, Tanner Glass got Pittsburgh on the board, and Jayson Megna scored his first career goal as the Penguins went on to a 3-1 win. Marc-Andre Fleury had 20 saves in another strong outing. He'll need one of his best of the year to beat the Bruins on Wednesday night.
