January's schedule ain't no joke.
The Pens play 12 times this month and by the end of the month we should get a clearer picture on where they stand.
The combined record for teams the Pens are playing this month: 188-149-46
Tampa Bay and Carolina are the only two losing teams the Pens will face this month. The fact that they are still without Crosby and Letang heighten concerns of a possible slump city month.
