MORNING SKATE INFO

The Pens used the following pairs...

Pouliot-Lovejoy
Scuderi-Cole

And deployed these lines…
Perron-Crosby-Hornqvist
Kunitz-Malkin-Comeau

START ME UP
Good morning hockey fans. Tonight the Pens will battle the Colorado Avalanche in the Mile High City. Here are some game notes to get you ready for the action...
  • The Penguins begin a four-game road trip against the Colorado Avalanche (TV: ROOT SPORTS; Radio 105.9 The X) at the Pepsi Center.
  • Pittsburgh has won two straight games against the Avalanche and six of the last seven meetings.
  • The Penguins have a three-game winning streak against the Avalanche here in Colorado.
  • The last three games between the Penguins and Avalanche have featured two shutouts and a combined six goals in 187:24 minutes. Each team has three goals during that span.
  • The Penguins outshot the Avalanche, 48-29, in their 1-0 victory on Dec. 18. Pittsburgh’s plus-19 shot differential in that contest was its second-best total of the year behind a plus-29 (43-14) on Jan. 30 in New Jersey.
