Columbus Blue Jackets
7:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA
The Penguins look to bounce back froma really tough game against the Washington Capitals when they got shut out for the fourth time this season. Things have been rough, and it looks as if Bing isn't going to be back right away.
The Penguins played a "home" game in Columbus in December. They put seven in the back of the net. I hope they score 20 tonight.
Tough stretch here for the Penguins as they are playing three games in four nights and four in six nights. With a banged up team this is going to be a guy check grouping of games against the Jackets, Kinds, Islanders and Rangers.
