Pens-Wild to be shown on VERSUS
The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to rebound from Monday's 2-1 loss at Winnipeg in front of a nationally-televised audience Tuesday night.
The Pittsburgh Penguins will look to rebound from Monday's 2-1 loss at Winnipeg in front of a nationally-televised audience Tuesday night.

Pittsburgh, which experienced a lot of trouble solving Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec, gets right back at it Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the United States and TSN2 in Canada.

Minnesota (2-1-2) has earned points in four of its first five games under rookie coach Mike Yeo. The Wild, who have benefited from the play of goalie Niklas Backstrom (2-1-1, 1.94 goals-against average, .928 save percentage), are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit on Saturday.

Canadian hockey fans will also be treated to a doubleheader Tuesday night. The Montreal Canadiens and Buffalo Sabres get things under way at 7 p.m. ET when they collide at the Bell Centre in a game that can be seen on RDS and TSN.

In the nightcap, the New York Rangers face the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. Opening faceoff for that showdown -- also to be televised on TSN -- is slated for 10 p.m. ET. New York, which is winless in its first three games (0-1-2), will visit four Canadian cities (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg) in a span of six nights.
Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
