The Pittsburgh Penguins traveled to the Motor City to clash with their old Stanley Cup rivals, the Detroit Red Wings. Ex-Penguin David Perron highlighted the game, scoring a hat trick to help the Red Wings power past Pittsburgh, 7-4. [Recap]

On Tuesday, the Penguins reassigned defenseman Taylor Fedun to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. In turn, the Pittsburgh club welcomed the return of veteran righty Jeff Petry. [Trib Live]
