Washington, which got back on track with a 2-1 win at Buffalo on Sunday, will visit the injury-depleted Pens the Consol Energy Center. Game time is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S., as well as TSN2 and RDS in Canada.
Canadian fans will also be treated to the matinee featuring the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues from the Scottrade Center. That game is set to begin at 2 p.m. ET. The Blues have won three straight games and are now just five points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
