Helllllooooooo everybodyyyyyy tonight the Penguins (28-19-6) look to snap their two game losing streak when they take on the Florida Panthers (21-22-8) in game one of their three game road trip. Puck drop is set for just after 7pm from BB&T Center.
The Penguins will see some similar faces on the opposing bench tonight when they take on the Panthers. Just five days ago, the Pens sent centers Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan along with three picks to Florida in exchange for Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann. I hope you're aware regardless of the final score, Derick Brassard will score multiple goals tonight. In fact, I'm going to predict that Brassard will score the game-winner.
The Penguins, winless over their last two contests take on a Florida team that despite a hot start, has cooled off drastically. The Cats are 4-5-1 over their last ten games and currently sit 13th in the Eastern Conference with just 50 points. Knowing this 2018-2019 Penguins team though, I expect Florida to give them a fit.
Speaking of fits, there are three guarantees in life: Death, taxes and Matt Murray injuries. Murray is day-to-day with an upper-body injury so expect Good Guy Casey DeSmith to start in goal for the Pens.
'Big Game Brass' Derick Brassard is going to score 9 goals tonight. Bet.
Matt Murray is day-to-day with another injury. Shocker, I know.
Expect Good Guy Casey DeSmith to start tonight. He'll go against Roberto Luongo.
Tristan Jarry was recalled on an emergency basis.
The Penguins are 10-1-3 in their last 14 games against the Panthers (per the Penguins).
Phil Kessel is two points away from 800. That's kinda good.
Sidney Crosby will tie Mario Lemieux in games played tonight with 915.
With a goal, 'Ris Letang will set the Penguins franchise record for goals scored by a defenseman.
Bjugstad tribute video?? He did play six years there.
Speaking of Bjugstad, he'll skate along Sidney Crosby on the top line tonight.
Evgeni Malkin could play tonight but I have no idea? I doubt it.
Justin Schultz could play on this upcoming road trip. All injured players made the trip so this is encouraging.
RIP Brian Dumoulin. Not sure if you saw, but he's playing with Jack Johnson tonight. Send Dumo your thoughts and prayers.
Honestly, this game is over.
What crappy weather.
