The streaking Boston Bruins kick off a four-game week Monday night with a highly-anticipated meeting against Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., NESN).
The Penguins have won five out of seven games since Crosby's return from injury, and their superstar has picked up where he left off, as the NHL's most dangerous forward. The Penguins currently lead the Atlantic Division. With 36 points, they are also the only Eastern Conference team with more points than the Bruins (33). The Bruins have played three fewer games.
Boston's week continues Tuesday night in Winnipeg against the Jets (8:30 p.m., NESN). The Bruins return home Thursday to face the Florida Panthers (7 p.m., NESN), then conclude the week Saturday against the Blue Jackets in Columbus (7 p.m., NESN). Florida currently leads the Southeast Division with 32 points, but Columbus has fewer points (17) than any other NHL team.
