ESPN NHL Pick Pittsburgh Penguins vs Boston Bruins
The Boston Bruins seem to be the obvious choice in this match-up. They are on a seven game winning streak and have more momentum coming into this game as opposed to the Penguins who lost their encounter against the Penguins yesterday. The Bruins also have played leagues better than the Penguins this season which is also another factor in favor of the Bruins. Additionally the weak Penguins defense should not pose much of a threat to the offense heavy Bruins unit. This is an easy one, expect the Bruins to take this one.
