Looking to extend their winning streak to five in a row the Penguins ran into a brick wall named Carter Hutton and were blanked in 3-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues. The power-play was lifeless, going 0-for-6 on the night.

The Pens will look to get back in the win column and take some positive momentum in to the All-Star break when they travel to Beantown on Thursday night to face the Boston Bruins. Game time is scheduled for 7:00 PM and will be broadcast locally on ROOT Sports.
