Talk hockey with Pens fans!

NHL: New Jersey Devils at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

It’s time for another hockey night in Pittsburgh! The New Jersey Devils come to town for the first Penguins/Devils matchup of the 2018-19 season. These two teams will meet up again next Tuesday night in the Garden state, so get used to seeing a bit of this team in the coming days.

It’s also Hockey fights cancer night in Pittsburgh with the boys wearing special purple jerseys to be auctioned off for the cause.

Expected Lines

Taylor Hall - Nico Hischier - Kyle Palmieri

Marcus Johansson - Travis Zajac - Miles Wood

Blake Coleman - Brett Seney - Drew Stafford

Brian Boyle - Jean-Sebastien Dea - Kurtis Gabriel

Mirco Mueller / Sami Vatanen

Andy Greene / Damon Severson

Will Bucher / Ben Lovejoy

Penguins

Jake Guentzel - Sidney Crosby - Dominik Simon

Carl Hagelin - Evgeni Malkin - Phil Kessel

Bryan Rust - Riley Sheahan - Patric Hornqvist

Derek Grant - Matt Cullen - Daniel Sprong

Brian Dumoulin / Kris Letang

Olli Maatta / Jamie Oleksiak

Jack Johnson / Juuso Riikola

Matt Murray in net for the Pens. It’s been confirmed that Riikola is back in the lineup at the expense of Chad Ruhwedel who will be a healthy scratch. We’ll see how this goes because Johnson-Riikola has been a very, very, very bad pair for the Pens.
