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.
The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
