New York Rangers (7-6-3) at Pittsburgh Penguins (11-3-1) 7:00 – ROOT Sports CONSOL Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA
Another check mark for Mike Johnston. Good teams bounce back from bad losses. The Penguins bounced back in this game over a tough Leafs team playing the best hockey of their young, stupid season. Brief thoughts:
The Penguins were coming off their worst defeat. The Leafs coming off their best win. Something gave, and as usual it was the Maple Leafs goaltending.

Oh no the Penguins lost a game in November! Game was over within the first 15 minutes. There is no chance anyone ever references this game ever again. Only thing to get remotely jammed up about was Tanner Glass saying he was bitter about his time in Pittsburgh. What is he bitter about? Getting paid […]
