Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins takes place in the NHL Stanley Cup 2013 Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals Game 3 on Wednesday night with the Bruins looking to move within one more win of the conference title and claiming their spot in the Championship Game. The game is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Bruins have gone 2-0 winning both opening games in Pittsburgh, putting the Penguins on the verge of defeat in the series already.
The series now moves to Boston where the Bruins will be confident of turning the screw even more. Game 3 and Game 4 will take place at TD Gardens and if the Bruins can win both of their home games then they will win the Eastern Conference title without the need for traveling to Pittsburgh again.
Oppositely the Penguins now must win at least one of their two on the road games if they are to extend the series back to Pittsburgh. Ideally they can turn things around completely and win the next two games, but the likelihood of that happening is slim on the evidence of their performances in Game 1 and 2.
Game 2 especially will have been hugely damaging to the morale of the Penguins team, and the manner of their 6-1 defeat may have knocked their confidence completely. Game 3 is where they will have to rally and show their character, and if they are able to come back and win this series from here then they will probably fully deserve their conference title.
Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins should be a tightly contested affair and all the action will start from 8 p.m. ET, with the game available to watch online through free live stream by clicking here.
