Blackhawks-Pens to be shown on VERSUS, TSN2
Can the Blackhawks make it six in a row? Television viewers across both the U.S and Canada will have the opportunity to find out Tuesday night.

Can the Chicago Blackhawks make it six in a row? Television viewers across both the United States and Canada will have the opportunity to find out Tuesday night.

Chicago (21-8-4), which made it five in a row and moved atop the League standings with Sunday night's 4-2 victory against Calgary, faces arguably its biggest challenge to date as the Blackhawks visit the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Consol Energy Center. Opening faceoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET and can be seen on VERSUS in the U.S. and TSN2 in Canada.

Pittsburgh (18-11-4) will be without the services of captain Sidney Crosby, but Evgeni Malkin had a hat trick and a pair of assists in the Pens' 8-3 win against Buffalo on Saturday night. The highly-skilled Russian has a 5-game point streak, tallying 6 goals and 6 assists over that span.

Canadian viewers will be treated to a second game, as TSN will broadcast the showdown between the Sabres and Ottawa Senators from Scotiabank Place. That match is also slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. ET. With a regulation win, the Sens can move ahead of Buffalo and into a tie for second-place in the Northeast Division with Toronto.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
