Pens - Blue Jackets

Before we get to the Blue Jackets, guess who's back?! Yinz Luv 'Da Guins! We've missed it too.

The Pens play the Blue Jackets in Columbus today at 7:00 p.m. The Pens played them February 6th at Mellon Arena and won 4-1. It's late and the game preview can tell you all you need to know way better than we could.

Petr Sykora skated before practice yesterday with Philippe Boucher. Sykora is getting better according to Dan Bylsma and he will travel with the team to Columbus and a decision will be made this morning as to whether he will play tonight or not.

The Chicago Blackhawks helped out the Pens last night by beating the Carolina Hurricanes in a shootout 3-2. There are plenty of games to keep an eye on tomorrow night as well. We'll update then.
