BOSTON (Ticker) -- Despite a lineup that includes a Hall of Famer, the league's most talked-about rookie and some veteran newcomers, the Pittsburgh Penguins have yet to win a game this season.

The Penguins look to snap a franchise record for the longest winless streak at the start of a season Saturday when they face the Boston Bruins.

Pittsburgh is among the league leaders in goals allowed (33) and has led in just one of its seven games this season. That was the previous meeting against Boston on October 8, which the Bruins won, 7-6, on Glen Murray's overtime tally.

Rookie Sidney Crosby and first-year Penguin Mark Recchi have two goals and seven assists each to share the team scoring lead. Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux scored his third goal of the season in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Boston has lost its last three games, including Thursday's 4-3 defeat against Buffalo. Sergei Samsonov scored two goals and Joe Thornton had two assists for Boston after missing three games with a strained back.

Boston's Shawn McEachern, who is scoreless in seven contests, is listed as day-to-day with back spasms. Defenseman Jiri Slegr is also day-to-day with a back injury.

The Bruins are 4-0-1 in their last five encounters against the Pittsburgh and are 56-16-6 in their home meetings with the Penguins.
