This will be the Bruins' fourth Winter Classic appearance and first since 2019. They are 2-1 in these games, including a 2-1 overtime win against the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 Winter Classic at Fenway Park. The Penguins are 1-1 in this event, including an exciting shootout victory over the Buffalo Sabres in the first ever Winter Classic back in 2008.
This year's showdown features multiple future Hall of Famers on both sides, several players who've won the Stanley Cup and a couple of young, exciting stars. Both teams play a fast-paced, aggressive style of hockey that typically results in plenty of goals scored. The only other meeting between the Bruins and Penguins this season was a 6-5 Boston victory in overtime on Nov. 1.
The Bruins have been the NHL's best team since the start of the season and sit atop the standings with a 28-4-4 record. The Penguins have lost four straight games but still occupy the first wild card playoff spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
