"Its a hockey night in Pittsburgh!!!" Tonight your Pittsburgh Penguins take on the New Jersey Devils, OK OK your Pittsburgh (50% baby pens) take on the Devils. After a long, tiresome, injury prone west coast trip the Penguins will try to bounce back against one of the greatest goaltenders of all time, Martin Brodeur.
It has been a rough stretch for your Penguins. Injury after injury, a long goal scoring drought and a hard time for all in the organization. Now to our unofficial Geico Quote of the day. Pens Captain Sidney Crosby.
"We've got to find a way to score some goals, that's the way it's been going the last week or two for us. It's been a long road trip, longer when you don't win. We've got to find a way to play better."
Now for some good news on the Penguins front this Gem from off the Pens website! Evgeni Malkin and Maxime Talbot both returned to practice this morning wearing their black practice jerseys instead of the red "no contact" ones. Malkin stated that he hopes to be back for Saturday's game vs. Boston and Max said he is still out for another ten days or so.
Tonight's probable starting lines from the Pens website show head coach Dan Bylsma is shaking things up a bit.
