Penguins Game Day 31 - vs. Detroit Red Wings

Detroit Red Wings

7:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


The Pens got on the winning track with a big win against the Islanders but the injury news has not been good since then. Since that time the Penguins have annoucned that Sidney Crosby has had some problems come up and he will be "out indefinitely" while we learned today that both Jordan Staal and Evgeni Malkin will be game time decisions. Staal is a "lower body injury" as he has been in the past so I expect him to play and Malkin actually missed the morning skate today and nobody is really sure what is wrong.

Other than that the Wings are in town so that should be fun. Hopefully MAF can bounce back after a shaky performance against the Islanders with a strong one against the Wings and bring hom a win.
