Welcome back to Pittsburgh! After going into free hockey mode in Montreal, the Penguins return home tonight to take on the Panthers of Florida! After beating Montreal 3-2 in overtime with Matt Murray in net, the Pens have a short break as tonights game is at 5PM with Tristan Jarry starting in net.
Pittsburgh continues to be killed with injuries, but the good news, everyone else continues to step up to help win. Last night, it was Zach Aston-Reese, Bryan Rust (again), and Brandon Tanev. The question remains, what will GMJR do to supplement this lineup as the season wears on? The trade deadline should be interesting for Pittsburgh as we finally have some cap room to make a relatively major deal.
Pittsburgh currently sits at 25-11-5, 55 points in the East. It places them in 2nd place in the division and 3rd in the conference.
Florida, currently sits at 21-15-5. 47 points in the East. They are currently out of the playoff picture.
(Note: these standings are as of 12:30 am)
