Pittsburgh Penguins (8-3-0) @ New Jersey Devils (6-1-3) ROOT, MSG PLUS, NHLN-US - 1:00 pm/et Prudential Center - Newark, NJ This is the quarter-point of the Pens' 2013 season (12x4=48). It's also the first game of a home-and-home against the Devils. The Pens are currently one point ahead of the Devils in the standings for the Atlantic Division and Eastern Conference leads. The Devils have played one fewer game. Season Series: 1-0-0 Last meeting that counted: February 2, 2013. Penguins won 5-1. What we said in our recap: The Pens were up 2-1 going into the third period. The Devils were piss all game but hanging around. Letang got the puck in the high slot, took his time, and sniped Brodeur. Pens rolled from there. The Pens are a strange case. They have some issues up front, but we will say this: the defense looks better with Bortuzzo and Despres getting some minutes. Once Niskanen gets back, we can feel a whole lot better. The...

Brodeur tumbles for acrobatic save

Report:  Penguins Recall Defenseman Prospect Joe Morrow

Too soon to make too much out of this.  Could very well be simply that Kris Letang's "lower body" (read: groin) injury is worse than originally anticipated.  Matt Niskanen has been skating the past couple of days, but may not be ready to return to the lineup soon.   Interesting: #Penguins have recalled 2011 first-round pick Joe Morrow, a defenseman. ...

ehhhhhhhh

Home and homes are like torture.  If we wanted to spend this much time with people who live in New Jersey, we'd just kill ourselves and go to the laundromat in hell.  Alas, hockey makes us see terrible things sometimes. At least we're getting it out of the way. Hope you are out of the snow and in your pajamas this Saturday afternoon. BEST HANGOVER CURE ...
