REMINDER: The Pensburgh gang is meeting up tomorrow night before the Penguins host the Canadiens! All information can be found HERE. And with that out of the way...

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

The Penguins traveled to New Jersey to battle the Devils for the second time in six days. The Pens got the win, with two big points, but the real story of the game came when both teams went into OT tied at 3. [Recap]

Yesterday morning also saw the Penguins announce the passing of Jim Rutherford’s mother, Dorothea. [Trib Live] We here at Pensburgh certainly send Jim Rutherford and his family our thoughts and condolences during this time.

News and notes from around the league...

Look, it’s great having the Penguins win the Stanley Cup every year. And I wouldn’t be opposed to it happening from now on until the end of time, but some may say the league is in need of a “forever” moment. [The Comeback]

We had an emergency goalie make an appearance for the Chicago Blackhawks during last night’s game against the Jets. For real. [Second City Hockey]
