Pens Points: Black Friday in Buffalo

Brush off your holiday hangover with a new edition of Pens Points as the Penguins head to Buffalo for a Black Friday showdown.

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving (The one true Thanksgiving. Sorry, Canada). The Pittsburgh Penguins certainly didn’t give us much to be thankful for after being shutout on Wednesday night, but they can redeem themselves later this evening as they begin a back-to-back holiday weekend set on the road against the Buffalo Sabres. This will be the second meeting between the teams this month with the Penguins winning 4-0 back on November 11th in Pittsburgh.

Puck drop is scheduled for 6:00 PM and will be broadcast nationally on TNT.
