Game #35 - at New Jersey Devils

Pittsburgh Penguins (15-13-6, 36 pts) at New Jersey Devils (19-13-3, 41 pts)

The Eastern Conference is really bunched up right now. The Pens are third from the bottom of the conference (currently tied for 12th). However, they're also just three points out of the playoffs, and five points behind the division leader, who they happen to play tonight. They really need to rattle off a nice run as they head into the midway point of the season.

Unfortunately for the Pens, who aren't a bad road team, the Devils are the best team at home in the East. They are 11-3-2 overall.

Fortunately for the Pens, the Devils are 0-2-1 in their last three games at home.

The Pens are 1-2 against the Devils so far this year, and didn't look very good in the two losses. The game in New Jersey, which is the most recent, was the worst by far.

Devils blog - check out In Lou We Trust, which looks pretty similar in style to this blog.

I'm looking for a good road effort tonight, with the Pens managing to eek out (yes, that's a technical term) a slim victory. Army scores and the Pens win.

Let's Go Pens!

I'm curious to see how they come out tonight. Recently, they have been flat after a layoff so I hope Therrien has them hyped up. A slow start against the Devils can cost you.
