Devils and Penguins meet in key clash

February 08, 2013 20:21:13 UK

The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to extend their lead in the Eastern Conference standings when they play the front end of a back-to-back home and home series with the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

Winners of five in a row including a 5-1 victory over the Devils last weekend, the Penguins had little trouble with the Washington Capitals on Thursday evening at the Consol Energy Arena in Pittsburgh as they ran out 5-2 victors.

Evgeni Malkin, Pascal Dupuis, James Neal, Matt Cooke and Sidney Crosby all struck in the second period as the Penguins spotted the Capitals a Mike Ribeiro goal and then took the visitors apart.

Crosby also added two assists and has 11 points during the winning streak. New Jersey, 2001.00 to win the Stanley Cup, comes into the game after doubling up the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-2 at the Prudential Center in Newark on Thursday.

It was the third win in a row for the hosts who have been a team of streaks so far winning their first three and losing their next four before the current run of success.

Weather permitting the Boston Bruins will welcome in the Tampa Bay Lightning to the TD Garden. With almost three feet of snow predicted for some parts of New England there’s a certain irony at the prospect of a hockey game being rescheduled.

The Bruins made news off the ice when they traded goalie Tim Thomas to the New York Islanders for a couple of draft picks. The best netminder in the sport when the Bruins won the Stanley Cup, Thomas and his self-imposed sabbatical had become expendable with the emergence of Tuukka Rask as a more than capable replacement.
