The Penguins have — at times — looked like a better team than the Bruins in the Eastern Conference finals. The thing is, whenever that happens, the Pens have usually failed to score.

Boston seems to be holding the line against the Pittsburgh pressure early in Game 4, just as they have in previous games whenever Sidney Crosby or a teammate gets a little mojo going. Thanks to Tuukka Rask, the Bruins have been able to hang around while the Penguins play well — and then capitalize on the times when they don’t.
