NBCSN - 7:30 pm/et
Madison Square Garden - New York City, NY
The first of a home-and-home between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New York Blue Jackets. The Pens look to start a new streak tonight while New York is fighting for its playoff life.
Mark Eaton is sick and won't play. Also, the Pens traded Patrick Killeen for future considerations presented by Walgreens.
Season Series: Pens lead 3-0-0
Last meeting that counted: March 16, 2013. Penguins won 3-0.
What we said in our recap:
If Dan Bylsma started a meth lab in the bottom of Consol, the Pens wouldn't have half the problems the Rangers do.
In the past, the Rangers were tough to play against. They are laughable now. The Pens shut them down with ease on Saturday afternoon.
Marc-Andre Fleury was solid, and the Pens defense was as good as it has been all season.
