93.7 'The Fan' Morning Show had TSN's Hockey Insider Darren Dreger on this morning and he believes the Penguins are zeroing in on Derick Brassard. Pls @god.
The Capitals lost last night after being up 2-1 with four minutes left, they somehow managed to lose 3-2. What a great evening.
The Penguins are 8-1-1 over their last ten coming into tonight's game.
Canes forward Sebastian Aho has six points in six games against the Penguins.
Expect Matt Murray vs Cam Ward tonight.
If the Hurricanes beat the Penguins tonight, it'll be their first season series win against them since the 2009-2010 season.
