PPG Paints Arena | Pittsburgh, PA

The Penguins are back in Pittsburgh as they play host to the reeling Devils, kicking off a three-game series against them and a five-game homestand that could determine significant chunks of playoff positioning in the East.

The Pens are coming off a weekend split in Buffalo against a Sabres team that has shown some resiliency as of late. The Pens took a 3-2 win on Saturday but dropped a 4-2 decision on Sunday. A split ain’t bad considering that 3PM starts usually spell disaster for this club.

This is a big game for the Penguins, and a big chance to bank points against inferior competition. The Penguins have these 3 tilts to finish off their season series against the Devils, then close out the season with a pair of games each against Boston, @ Washington, @ Philadelphia, and Buffalo.

The Devils have lost 6 in a row, and 10 of their last 11. They’re next to last in the league, suddenly just 3 points ahead of the well documented shitpile that Buffalo has been for most of the year.
