Penguins Game Day 49 - vs. Carolina Hurricanes

 Carolina Hurricanes
7:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA

After a dreadfully boring game in front of like six people at The Rock. The trap got the best of the Penguins again. I guess when you don't turn it on until the third period there is going to be some problems.

Nothing that is going to get your mind off the AFC Championship like a Penguins/Hurricans game.

Over/Under is 50 for "the Staals are brothers" references. I would say this is going to be a drinking game but I don't want all five of my readers at the hospital halfway through the second period.

Bing and Geno will be out for a second game tonight so someone else is going to have to step up.

Hopefully the Penguins can pick up a few points tonight at home.
