NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins at Carolina Hurricanes James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

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

The Penguins met the Carolina Hurricanes last night in Raleigh, North Carolina with hopes to quell the storm surge of their divisional foe. And for 58 minutes of the contest, it looked like the Penguins were on their way to doing just that. You may already know where I’m going with this. They blew another game. [Recap]
