Five days after the Pittsburgh Penguins
came to the Air Canada Centre and left with a 6-5 shootout win, they're back to try again on Wednesday night.
In an odd bit of scheduling, the Penguins in Toronto for back-to-back games. The Penguins have been off since their win on Saturday, while the Leafs went to Atlanta on Sunday and lost 3-2 in overtime.
The game, one of five on Wednesday's NHL schedule, can be seen on Versus in the United States and TSN in Canada, beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
Two other games also begin at 7 -- both in the New York area. Minnesota will try to bounce back from Monday's 4-2 home loss to Chicago when it makes a rare visit to Long Island, and Tampa Bay visits New Jersey. Both teams have been off since road wins on Sunday -- the Lightning beat the Rangers 2-1, and the Devils edged Florida by the same score.
The Blackhawks, winners of five in a row after beating the Wild, try for six straight when they visit Calgary at 9 p.m. ET. In Wednesday's other game, Detroit goes for two in a row in Southern California when it visits Anaheim. The Wings won 7-4 at Los Angeles on Monday, one night after the Ducks edged Colorado 3-2 at home.
