Penguins Gameday #21 (Hurricanes)

Penguins (10-8-2, 22 pts) (2nd Atlantic, 6th East)

Hurricanes (9-9-0, 18 pts) (3rd Southeast, 9th East)

Where: Consol Energy Center

When: 7:00 ET


The Pens are on a roll and hope to continue it tonight when the Canes come into town. The Pens played arguably one of their best games of the season so far against Carolina already, and shut them out 3-0.

Opponents to Watch:

-Jussi Jokinen: Speedy forward who knows how to put the puck in the net. Also quite deadly on breakaways and shootouts.

-Jeff Skinner: Surprise rookie of the year thus far, Skinner is in his first pro season after being drafted and putting up the numbers that one would expect from Hall or Seguin. It also may have something to do with his usual linemates, one of whom is Jokinen and the other is next on this list.

-Eric Staal: Hands down one of the best scoring power forwards in the league. Also team captain and leads his team in goals, assists, and points.


-Canes look healthy, and the only injury from the Pens is Jordan Staal.
