The Penguins returned to action last night by heading out to western Canada for a date with Mr. Five Goals himself, Patrik Laine and the Winnipeg Jets. In a game that was of the back-and-forth and comeback varieties, a total of seven goals were scored, but it was the Penguins who would come out on top with the wild 4-3 victory. [Trib Live Recap]
