Pittsburgh Penguins @ Columbus Blue Jackets 2/17/17

The Penguins hit the road to face the Blue Jackets and that damn cannon

Russell LaBounty-USA TODAY Sports

The Penguins hit the road tonight and play on the back-end of a back-to-back against a rested Columbus team. At stake is second place for the Metro division, both teams have 56 games played and 34 ROW, Pittsburgh is currently 2 points ahead. After tonight they could be 4 points ahead with a regulation win, tied with a regulation loss or anywhere in between with overtime/shootout factors.

Sports Club has Pittsburgh/Blue Jackets currently at 57.3% for a first round matchup and it looks likely that this could be the 2 vs. 3 matchup. A night like tonight could go a long way to determining which club gets home ice advantage.
