Since the Penguins have lost *OMG* two games in a row, it'll be interesting to see if they can bounce back today. A game at 5pm is weird. Season Series: 0-0-0 Last meeting that counted: March 24, 2012. Penguins lost 8-4. What we said in our recap: If this game demonstrated anything, it is how imperative it is to have solid goaltending.
