Columbus Blue Jackets
1:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Pretty good win for the Penguins yesterday but as good as that win was it could be a wash if they don't go out and take care of business against the Blue Jackets. The last time the Pens were in this position was when they laid an egg against Buffalo.
I think the Penguins will be alright today as they were pretty upset about the loss to Buffalo. It will be interesting to see if Marc Andre Fleury is going to get the start in net or if the Penguins will turn to Brad Thiessen in net. I would assume that MAF isn't going to play today but you never know.
I will hopefully be able to watch the second half of today and will try to get a recap up after but I wouldn't bet my life on it.
