ROOT, FS-F, RDS2 – 7:00 pm/et
Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA
*Insert text that attempts to make a game against the Panthers seem really exciting and important here.*
Season Series: 0-0-0
Last meeting that counted: March 9, 2012. Penguins won 2-1 [SO].
What we said in our recap:
Is there a term for the Penguins under Bylsma in March? The last couple of years it has been cruise city in March. Really remarkable. Last night was no different. The Pens didn't play their best, but they trucked onward. A lot of talk about this game being an example of clutch and grab old NHL shit. Honestly, didn't think it was that terrible. Refs let both teams play, in our opinion.

What they're saying:
Florida completes the Pennsylvania back to back tomorrow in Pittsburgh when they face the Penguins, who lost to Philadelphia on Wednesday. Triangles are fun! If Dan Bylsma knows anything about beating the Florida Panthers, he'd know to play Tomas Vokoun in net. On the Cats side, expect Jacob Markstrom to get the start, meaning a possible showdown of the tandem-that-would-never-be. Penguins vs Panthers, 7:00pm.
