Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
NHL action is heating up and fans are buying in. Two of the league's toughest teams face off for the second time this Saturday night in what could well be a teaser for the conference title come spring.
Last Monday night left hockey fans salivating. The first meeting between these two squads since last season’s playoffs was a thriller. Boston challenged the Penguins at home and edged Pittsburgh 4-3, riding defenseman Torey Krug’s game-winning goal in overtime.
The Penguins are looking to settle some things in Boston Saturday night. A win would give them a strong foothold on first place and even the series against their bitter rivals and the conference favorites.
After a heated November, the Bruins and Penguins are face-to-face atop the Eastern Conference standings, and first in their divisions. The teams are on a collision course for a playoff showdown once again this year.
Both teams are the best in their respective categories. The Penguins are statistically one of the league’s best offensive teams, led by Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, while the Bruins have the lowest goals-against average in the Eastern Conference.
“Saturday’s game offers hockey fans one of the hottest rivalries in the game at a time when both teams are at their peak,” said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com. “Both teams are also in strong contention for the Stanley Cup this year, making this weekend's matchup more impactful than ever.”
“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of sports tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” added Ault.

Pittsburgh thought they had assembled a championship-caliber lineup last season before the Bruins crashed the party. Penguins’ hopes crumbled as the Bruins marched in and swept the Eastern Conference finals, erasing what had been a promising year for the Pens. After a busy off-season, the Penguins have improved, and once again pose a worthy threat for the defending conference champion Bruins.
Boston, meanwhile, is hungrier than ever for another shot at the cup. The Bruins enter the month of December with an impressive record of 18-7-2, just one point behind Pittsburgh for control of the conference.
After a crippling defeat at the hands of the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup finals last June, the Bruins are aching for a return to the championship series and the opportunity to prove that they are the best team in the league. Pittsburgh has other ideas.
Other key matchups this week include Anaheim Ducks against St. Louis Blues on Saturday while the San Jose Sharks take on the Minnesota Wild Sunday night.
