For the third time this season, these two will meet. Each have a win against each other. Who will prevail between the visitors who are 3-6-1 in their last ten against the home team who's 7-2-1 in their last ten? Let's learn a little more about this game.
What Happened Last Time: Noveber 16, 2013 – Pens lost 4-1. [Our Recap]
There is something going on with this team that isn't too great. Something seems off. It’s still too early to know exactly what or how big the problem is, but it is a little concerning. Yet another game where they gave the puck away more than their opponent (5-2). Another game where they didn't get goals from Crosby or Malkin.
Penguins Player(s) to Watch: Jayson Megna, because it looks like he'll see some time with Malkin.
Devils Player(s) to Watch: Jaromir Jagr, because he's Jaromir Jagr.
