The Bruins steamrolled over the Penguins, sweeping them in the Eastern Conference Finals, to advance to their second Stanley Cup Final in three years.

Boston will face the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 1 Wednesday night, a much different team than the Penguins. Though Pittsburgh boasted players like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Jarome Iginla and James Neal, the Bruins' defense shut them down, holding the Penguins to just two goals in the four games.

Because of the NHL lockout and the shortened season, the Bruins haven't faced a team from the Western Conference yet, and the Bruins will get their first look at a Chicago team that includes players like Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews and Marian Hossa.

Kevin Paul Dupont, Bob Beers and Michael Felger discuss on "Sports Sunday" if the Bruins can shut down the Blackhawks the same way they did the Penguins.
