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.
There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
