Here are your Pens Points for this Wednesday morning...
Last night, the Penguins returned home to PPG Paints Arena to do combat with the Coyotes. 59 seconds into the game, Justin Schultz, who was taken off of Injured Reserve earlier in the day, kicked off the festivities by giving the Penguins a 1-0 lead. By the end of the night, the Penguins had served up some more home cooking for a solid 3-1 win. [Recap]
Well, as previously mentioned, Schultz was removed from IR yesterday. As a result, Zach Trotman was sent back down to WB/S. [Penguins]
Before Trotman was sent down however, he was able to silence a Twitter troll who took aim at his wife. [Trib Live]
