Bruins Schedule: Boston Travels To Pittsburgh To Take On Matt Cooke And The Penguins

The Boston Bruins return to action Wednesday night when they battle the Penguins in Pittsburgh, their fourth road contest in five games. Boston (7-3-1) will be looking to snap a mini two-game losing skid while Pittsburgh (7-7-1) is aiming for its first win at home since Oct. 18. 

 

The Boston Bruins return to action Wednesday night when they battle the Penguins in Pittsburgh, their fourth road contest in five games. Boston (7-3-1) will be looking to snap a mini two-game losing skid while Pittsburgh (7-7-1) is aiming for its first win at home since Oct. 18. 

Also on the Bruins' minds Wednesday night will be the Penguins' Matt Cooke, and the hit he put on Marc Savard last March. 

The hit left Savard with post-concussion syndrome which has never fully gone away -- Savard spent the summer with "a fog-filled brain and suffered from a crushing depression." And while Boston is saying a win is the most important goal Wednesday night, you can be sure they haven't forgotten, says CSNNE.com's Joe Haggerty

"It's always going to be there, for sure," said Lucic. "I know Savvy is going to be home watching [the game on TV] closely. He's going to want us to win that game more than anything."

And revenge on Cooke?

"It's a physical game," said Lucic. "Things happen. We're not going to go out of our way to get somebody back, but, like I said, it's a physical game.

Savard briefly returned during the playoffs last season, but he hasn't played this year, as the team placed him on injured reserve Sep. 19 with post-concussion syndrome. 

The Bruins are also currently without Savard's replacement, David Krejci, who's out with a "moderate concussion."

This will be Boston's first trip to Pittsburgh's new home, the Consol Energy Arena.
