Pittsburgh have been on a run that has them leading the race in the East for the final playoff spot, winning 5 of their past six games. Sidney Crosby has 4 goals and 10 points during that time and has been leading his team in the push to secure a wild card spot in a contest that will go down to the final game of the season.

The Bruins are in the hunt for the President’s Trophy but they need another couple of wins to secure their spot as the number one seed in the Atlantic Division. For Boston the importance is form and health heading into the playoffs though and the desperation of Pittsburgh will prevail in this old rivalry match. 

Sidney Crosby will keep his form and the dream of a place in the 2024 playoffs alive with another big performance for the Pens who will get the win.

  • Pittsburgh have won 9 of their past 12 games at home.
  • Pittsburgh 28 goals in their past 6 games, 4.66GF/G which ranks first in the NHL.
  • Crosby has 4 goals in his past 6 games.

Boston Bruins Form


Boston's chase for their second President’s Trophy in as many years took a hit, losing 4-1 to Carolina at home last time they were on the ice. The loss broke a four-game win streak that took the Bruins to within 3 points of the Rangers who lead the race with a 53-23-4 record.

The focus for the Bruins this season will not be claiming the President’s Trophy though, they will want to make sure that they are fully fir and in form heading into the postseason, after bowing out in the first round of the playoffs last season.
