Today on Bruins Daily

Your’s truly and Erika Leigh film the Halloween edition of Bruins Daily TV at Studio 73 at Suffolk University. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for pics and more updates from today’s show.

And of course, we’ll be tweeting updates from tonight’s Bruins-Penguins matchup. We may also provide some Red Sox updates, too.

In case you missed it

Jack Edwards’ call of David Krejci’s game-winner against the San Jose Sharks earned “Jack Edwards call of the week” honors.

Know the enemy

In case you haven’t heard, the Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for revenge on the Black and Gold after being swept in the Eastern Conference Finals just a few short months ago. Outside of Jarome Iginla’s departurem the addition of Chuck Kobasew and the emergence of Olli Maatta, the Pens roster mostly remains the same. Moreover, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is finding his groove again thanks to the arrival of assistant coach and former Canadiens and Senators bench boss, Jacques Martin.

At 8-4-0, the Pens sit atop the new-look Metropolitan Division. They are also the only team in the division with a winning record. Will Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and company get their revenge against the defending Eastern Conference Champions? Stay tuned.
