The Bruins look for two wins in a row when they take on the Pittsburgh Penguins in a Saturday afternoon matchup at TD Garden.

Boston is coming off a dominant 4-1 home win over the Toronto Maple Leafs in front of members of the 2011 Stanley Cup team. Jim Montgomery’s side set the tone physically as it continues its prep for playoff hockey.

Saturday’s matchup comes a day after the NHL trade deadline. The Bruins added Pat Maroon and Andrew Peeke, neither of whom will suit up against the Penguins. Michael Bunting will make his Pittsburgh debut after he was acquired in a trade that sent Jake Guentzel to the Carolina Hurricanes.

Hampus Lindholm is expected to make his return, and general manager Don Sweeney told reporters Friday that Derek Forbort is “more than likely” out for the season after he was placed on long-term injured reserve. Lindholm is expected to pair with Kevin Shattenkirk with Parker Wotherspoon getting scratched from the lineup.
