Phoenix Coyotes (33-23-9) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (38-21-5)
TV: ROOT, FS-A
Consol Energy Center - Pittsburgh, PA
We don't really know anything about the Coyotes, except that the current Jets keep trying to steal their history.
The Pens have won five-in-a-row and eight of their last ten.
Season Series: 0-0-0
Last meeting that counted: December 20, 2011. Penguins won 6-1.
What we said in our recap:
It was just a matter of time before Evgeni Malkin got going. That time has arrived. And with an already red-hot Crosby, some games could get ugly.
Malkin poured in 5 points, Crosby 3, while extending his 21-game scoring streak.
