What the Penguins need to do to win:Get the right match-ups. Try to keep Sidney Crosby away from Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara. Crosby leads the league in playoff goals and will help the Pens move on to the Stanley Cup Finals. However, a balanced scoring also led the Penguins to two huge wins over the Ottawa Senators in the last two games of the series.
What the Bruins need to do to win: Play the gritty game they can. The Penguins do not have an overly physical team that the Bruins do. The Bruins feature Chara, Milan Lucic, Shawn Thornton and Andrew Ference that will limit the Penguins’ time and space.
