Here are your Pens Points for this Tuesday morning...

It wouldn't be a normal day of the week without another Penguin becoming injured. Tom Kuhnhackl is hurt and is considered 'week-to-week.' Eric Fehr will presumably take Kuhnhackl's place and rejoin the team on the 4th line. [Penguins]

With an already-depleted defense, tonight's matchup with the Rangers and their potent offense will prove to be quite the challenge to the Pens. [Trib Live]

Matt Murray may not be a very good forward or defenseman. That may explain why he's a goalie. However, he, like his partner Marc-Andre Fleury, wants to score a goal. [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

One of the biggest question marks on the current Penguins team is the quality of play out of the left wingers. Will GMJR and coach Sullivan break and address the issue to prepare for a strong second half of the season? [Pensburgh]

News and notes from around the NHL...

In what could play a crucial part in tonight's game, it appears New York will be without Rick Nash. He has been sidelined with a groin injury. [Blueshirt Banter]

President-elect, Donald Trump, has nominated the owner of the Florida Panthers to be the Secretary of the Army. [Litter Box Cats]

Here is what the Atlanta Flames can teach the Golden Knights in year one. [Sportsnet]

Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00!
