Wilderness Walk 6-4-2013: 2-0 Edition

A common sight in Pittsburgh last night. - Bruce Bennett

The Boston Bruins put the upset in full swing as they demolished the Pittsburgh Penguins 6-1 at the Consol Energy Center.

Good Morning Wilderness, and if your feeling somewhat like a doormat this morning I would suspect you are a fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Wow, the Boston Bruins just turned the Consol Energy over on its head. They beat up on the Penguins by a score of 6-1 and take a commanding 2-0 series lead back to Boston for game 3 on Wednesday.

Tonight the Chicago Blackhawks take their own 2-0 series lead to the West Coast as they take on the Los Angeles Kings. Tonight's game starts at 8 pm CST which should still allow you for ample sleep. I wouldn't count the Kings out quite yet, but they are going to need some serious love from the Staples Center.
