Bruins at Penguins: What Bettors Need to Know
By Covers.com

Boston Bruins at Pittsburgh Penguins (-180, 5.5)

Bruins lead best-of-seven series 1-0.

After losing their composure in the opener of the Eastern Conference final, Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins will look to keep their emotions in check on Monday as they attempt to even the series against the visiting Boston Bruins. Crosby openly questioned the officiating and reigning Hart Trophy winner Evgeni Malkin even dropped the gloves as the top-seeded Penguins suffered a 3-0 setback to the fourth-seeded Bruins on Saturday. "It's tough," said Crosby, who was penalized twice in Game 1. "They're letting a lot go out there, and the more it gets like that, the more it's going to escalate. You can only control and channel that stuff so much."

Tuukka Rask didn't have any trouble channeling his emotions as he turned aside all 29 shots he faced to record his first playoff shutout. David Krejci scored twice to increase his league-leading point total to 19 while Nathan Horton collected a goal and two assists in Saturday's triumph to improve to an NHL-best plus-17.

ABOUT THE BRUINS: Defenseman Andrew Ference didn't wait long to make a statement following a seven-game absence with a lower-body injury. Ference took an aggressive role by skating into the offensive zone before setting up Krejci's first goal at 8:23 of the first period. "Obviously it's nice, and it was very difficult to watch," Ference said of being a bystander. "It's a lot easier when you win and watch but you want to contribute, you want to be a part of it." Boston's defensemen have recorded 31 of the team's 110 points in the playoffs.

ABOUT THE PENGUINS: Tomas Vokoun didn't walk away with a victory in Game 1, but he did nothing the lose his spot as the team's starting goaltender in the eyes of coach Dan Bylsma. "We don't get this win, (but) the win and the loss isn't necessarily an indicator of what we're going to do with the goaltending situation," Bylsma said. Vokoun has posted a 6-2 mark with a 1.98 goals-against average and .937 save percentage since replacing Stanley Cup-winning netminder Marc-Andre Fleury prior to Game 6 of the first-round series versus the New York Islanders.

TRENDS:

*Under is 4-0 in the last four meetings.
*Bruins are 23-3 in their last 26 Monday games.
*Penguins are 1-6 in their last seven games following a home loss of three or more goals.

OVERTIME

1. Pittsburgh LW Matt Cooke was not subjected to additional punishment from the league following his hit on Boston D Adam McQuaid. Cooke received a five-minute major and a game misconduct after drilling McQuaid from behind at 1:32 of the second period.

2. Krejci is tied with Crosby and Penguins LW Pascal Dupuis with seven goals - one shy of Chicago C Patrick Sharp for the league lead.

3. Both teams went 0-for-4 on the power play in Game 1.
