Busy day for sports in Pitt today. After today's game a bunch of fans will likely shoot over to Heinz Field for the Steelers vs. Ravens matchup. Winner goes to the Super Bowl. If you want to follow the action here on SBN then make sure you hit up BehindTheSteelCurtain.
On to hockey...
The Rangers squeaked out a win Friday night against the Blackhawks in overtime thanks to a Chris Drury goal. Given two points for the win, the Rangers moved back into first place in the division.
The Pens aren't doing all that well against the Rangers this year, as indicated by their 0-1-2 record. If anything we can at least find some salvation in the fact that Pitt has at least managed those two OT points. That's the kind of take-what-you-can-get hockey the Pens are playing right now.
Today though you'd better expect the Pens want two. An injury-ridden win over the Ducks the other night can say a lot for this squad. They're winning while down some of the big names. Maybe it's enough to ride out the week with.
Brooks Orpik is out. Sidney Crosby, Rob Scuderi and Kris Letang are game-time decisions.
