Two Eastern Conference playoff teams will clash on Tuesday night when the Pittsburgh Penguins hit the road to face the Boston Bruins.

The Penguins are hoping that the All-Star break will change their momentum. They rode into the weekend on a four-game losing streak, but now have a chance to reset and get back to their winning ways with a victory tonight.

Tonight will serve as the first of three meetings between these teams this season.

Let's take a look at the odds via WynnBET for tonight's matchup.

Penguins vs. Bruins Prediction and Pick

The Bruins have recalled goaltender Jeremy Swayman from the minor leagues and will start him in net tonight with Tuuka Rask still dealing with an injury. He's 8-6-2 in 16 starts for Boston so far this season, which makes the Penguins an attractive option as an underdog.

The Penguins have been averaging 3.58 goals per 60 minutes over their last 25 games, which is the sixth best mark in the NHL over that stretch. They've also only allowed 2.48 goals against per 60 minutes, which ranks fourth over each team's last 25 games.

Ignore the losing streak the Penguins were on ahead of the All-Star break. They've been playing some of the best hockey in the league and I expect them to get back in the win column tonight.
