NHL.com @NHL
The Consol Energy Center will be rocking Tuesday night, as the Pittsburgh Penguins return home after earning five of a possible six points on their successful three-game road trip.

VERSUS will be in the building as the Pens host the Florida Panthers at 7:30 p.m. ET. Florida got its season off to a solid start Saturday night, when it blanked the New York Islanders in a 2-0 victory at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Pittsburgh nearly made it three straight victories on the road, as it opened up its season with wins at Vancouver and Calgary. The Pens then held a 1-0 lead going into the third period on Sunday night before suffering a 2-1 shootout loss at Edmonton.

Kris Letang is off to a tremendous start for Pittsburgh, as the offensive defenseman has 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) in the club's first three games. Marc-Andre Fleury is 2-0-0 with a 2.88 goals-against average.

Jose Theodore, Florida's new No. 1 goaltender, stopped all 21 shots he faced against the Isles on Saturday night.

Tuesday's game will also be broadcasted nationally in Canada on TSN2.
