The Pittsburgh Penguins return home to Mellon Arena on Sunday at 3 p.m. to take on the New Jersey Devils.
The unique start time marks the Penguins’ only afternoon Sunday game this year.
The Penguins are hoping for a repeat the last time the two teams met in Pittsburgh on March 11. The Penguins scored six goals on 16 shots against Martin Brodeur en route to a 6-3 triumph. Brodeur rebounded, though, on March 16 when he stopped 13 of 14 shots in a 2-1 victory in New Jersey.
Pittsburgh looks to sustain momentum gained from Friday’s 4-0 road shutout of the New York Islanders. Rookie Sidney Crosby had three points (1+2) and Sergei Gonchar scored two power-play goals. It ended Gonchar’s power-play drought that had lasted since Oct. 29.
Following the contest, the Penguins embark on a four-game road trip – their second-longest journey of the season. The Penguins return to Pittsburgh April 13 to take on the Rangers.
