After a disappointing weekend, losing two straight games to the Blues and Flyers, the Penguins (39-24-10) head to Carolina to take on the very fun Carolina Hurricanes (39-25-7) to kick off a four game road trip. Puck drop is set for just after 7pm.
Honestly we hope the Pens lose so we can see the Hurricanes do some incredible celebration and make more people mad. The Hurricanes currently hold the 1st Wild Card spot one point ahead of the Columbus Blue Jackets and four points ahead of the Montreal Canadiens. In Carolina's last game they beat Buffalo 4-2. The last time the Pens played Carolina the Canes won 4-0. Unfortunately that game was in Pittsburgh so we couldn't see a Hurricanes celebration. Truthfully more teams should celebrate like "a bunch of jerks". Anything that would make Don Cherry mad, we are all for. Oh and if you haven't heard, Evgeni Malkin is out week to week so that is fun thanks to a cheap hit from Blues defenseman Robert Bortuzzo.
Expect Petr Mrazek vs Matt Murray in goal tonight.
Carolina is fun.
We honestly don't know what to make of the Penguins this season. They are world beaters one week then the next they lay eggs in back to back games.
Kris Letang could return to the lineup tonight. He's been out since February 23rd because Shayne Gostisbehere is an asshole.
Holy shit. Phil Kessel has dressed in 765 consecutive games and is set to pass Forward 27 tonight when he skates in his 320th straight game for the Penguins. This will make him the franchise all-time leader for consecutive games played.
Jake Guentzel is one point away from 69 on the season. #nice.
Thank God Michael Ferland isn't a Penguin.
The Pens have earned points in seven of their last eight road games going 5-1-2 during that stretch.
Don Cherry sucks.
Ryan Votash ruined the Penguins season. Tell him he sucks and tweet him on twitter at @CouldinBe_RyanV
Bryan Rust returned last game so yay!
Matt Cullen also sucks.
