San Jose Sharks (32-21-8, 72 pts) at Pittsburgh Penguins (35-21-6, 76 pts)
Quick preview today. The Pens should be anxious for the chance to finish up their slate of games against the Western Conference. They are 8-1 against the West so far this year.
San Jose, by comparison, is just 2-5 so far against the East.
The Sharks own the best road record in the NHL, even though they'd lost three straight on the road before beating Philadelphia on Thursday (who hasn't beaten the Flyers lately?)
This is an important game for the Pens. They have a bunch of road games coming up, and this is a quality opponent at home. No word on the starting goalie yet.
Let's Go Pens!
