Here are your Pens Points for this Friday morning...
The Penguins played host to the Washington Capitals once again last night when both teams met in Game 4 of the series. It was essentially a must-win scenario for Pittsburgh, doing anything they could to avoid going back to Washington down 3 games to 1. The night belonged to Jake Guentzel, as the young winger scored two goals to propel Pittsburgh to a much-needed 3-1 win. [Recap]
