Following a 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, the Penguins (39-26-4) are back in action again tonight, this time from PPG Paints Arena where they will faceoff against the Dallas Stars (38-24-6).
Last night's game was weird. I'll be honest, I missed most of it, however I did see the goaltender 'interference' call on Brian Dumoulin, where they not only took away the goal, but they also assessed him a two minute penalty. No one knows the rules in the NHL anymore. That call was terrible and honestly makes me not want to watch hockey. Not saying that call won or lost them the game, but Toronto scored again right after the goal was disallowed. Didn't see it?

A lot of things went wrong for the Penguins last night, but that was just the icing on the cake. The Penguins had their three game winning streak snapped and with a Capitals victory over the San Jose Sharks last night, the Penguins are now back in second place in the Metrosexual Division. The Penguins are still without goaltender Matt Murray and forward Bryan Rust because of concussions. Dominik Simon is also out with a lower-body injury. Expect Kari Lehtonen vs Casey DeSmith tonight. Nothing else to really write about. Penguins look to start a new streak.
Zach Aston-Reese is still out with an upper-body injury, forgot to mention it.
It's game 70 of the season, which means it's no longer game 69.
Despite losing 5-2 yesterday, the Penguins outshot the Leafs 40-26, so it wasn't all bad.
Malkin is riding a five game point streak coming into tonight.
I miss Jagr.
Jamie Benn doesn't like going down.
National television tonight, NBCSN with those degenerate commentators, buckle up.
I hope Mike Milbury gets CTE at some point in his life.
Jamie Benn had some things to say about the goaltender 'interference' call last night.
