2011-12 Game 44
Pittsburgh Penguins (22-17-4, 48 points) at Tampa Bay Lightning (17-22-4, 38 points)
Expect to see Malone hanging out in the Penguins' crease.
Why does it matter?
It's a chance to build on something good as the Pens try to beat the Lightning for the first time in five tries.
What has been happening lately?
Pens - The ship was turned around with their 4-1 win against the Panthers on Friday night.
Lightning - 2012 has not been kind to the Bolts, who have lost six straight games (0-5-1).
Questions to be answered
Will the goal scoring continue? That's the big question - the Pens need to keep firing the puck. The Lightning have been flip-flopping between Garon and Roloson, though neither has been very good.
Can the Pens take advantage of the poor special teams play from Tampa? The PK and power play for the Bolts are among the worst in the league.
Any chance of a Brent Johns...
