STATS: January could be Judgment Month for the Pittsburgh Penguins

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.
