Pittsburgh Penguins at Carolina Hurricanes Game Thread

Jamie Sabau

The Penguins are visiting the friendly city of Raleigh. Seriously, has anyone had a bad experience at a Canes game? Maybe it's because the Pens have a strong following in the South.

On the injury front, the Canes have Jeff Skinner, Tim Brent, Tim Gleason, and Jamie McBain all returning tonight. Pens will still be without Evgeni Malkin, though he did reportedly skate for 30 minutes this morning. Good sign, hopefully.

A slightly insane stat from the Pens Report:

Ten of the last 14 games between the Penguins and Hurricanes have been one-goal games (six overtime shootout games during that span).

However, we all know what the main story of the night will be: Jordan Staal will be proving he made the right decision. Brandon Sutter will be proving Shero made the right decision.

Go Pens.
