Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,
Boston humbled the mighty Pens last spring, and Zdeno Chara pushed Sidney Crosby around the ice like a bully kicking sand on the 98-pound weakling. Key offensive players like Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin were all bottled up by the Bruins defense, and Pittsburgh had no answer to Boston’s physicality once the puck dropped for Game 1.
So it’s safe to say the Penguins will have a little vengeance on their mind in tonight's highly anticipated “Rivalry Night” on NBCSN. (You'll be able to watch a livestream of the game right here on CSNNE.com.) There’s no Matt Cooke to rattle the Bruins' cages, but they’d better brace for whatever storm the Penguins are capable of creating.
“It always enters your mind, but it’s not up to us,” said Bruins coach Claude Julien. “It’s up to them in how they approach that game. . . . We lost our last game and we need to be better, so we need to bounce back. I have a feeling it’s going to be an interesting game to watch.”
