Boston Bruins (29-23-11-69 pts) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (39-22-4-82 pts)
A few Penguins pregame notes as the team looks to make it four straight coming out of the Olympic break.
*Winger Bill Guerin will miss his third straight game with back spasms. Guerin is regarded as day-to-day but will not participate in warmups and try to play.
*Goaltender Marc Andre Fleury will make his third straight start and appear in back-to-back games I’m told. This morning there was speculation that Fleury’s former backup Dany Sabourin would start in goal for Boston but it has been confirmed to me that Tim Thomas will get the start.
Kunitz – Crosby – Dupuis
Ponikarovsky – Malkin – Fedotenko
Cooke – Staal – Kennedy
Rupp – Adams – Talbot
Eaton – Gonchar
Orpik – Letang
Goligoski – Leopold
