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

The Pens are back in action tonight to begin the unofficial second half of the season. The Penguins will battle the Predators as they look to make up some ground on the Blue Jackets, who the Penguins just so happen to play against on Friday night, in what looks to be a fairly high-stakes divisional game. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:00!
