THE TEAM NEWS

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS

  • Pittsburgh Penguins had their five-match winning streak halted by Vegas Golden Knights in their last outing and the Penguins will be looking to respond quickly after a disappointing showing saw them shutout.
  • That was the first time this season that the Penguins have failed to find the back of the net with the Penguins needing to be better here if they are to get back on track and improve their 6-3-0 record.
  • The Penguins were not aided by injuries to several players who were forced to sit out against the Golden Knights and went into that game with just 11 forwards with Jared McCann again forced to sit out with an injury he cannot shake off.

FLORIDA PANTHERS

  • Florida Panthers picked up just their third win of the season as they edged Nashville Predators in a shootout on Saturday and they will hope that can act as a platform to improve their record as they host Pittsburgh Penguins.
  • The Panthers now sit at 3-2-3 after defeating the Predators and did well to not let their heads drop after blowing a two-goal lead in the third period before Vincent Trocheck’s goal proved to be decisive in the shootout.
  • Aleksander Barkov gave his team a scare when he suffered an upper body injury that forced him off the ice against the Predators and whilst the injury is not deemed serious, he may still miss some game time.

THE PREDICTION

Pittsburgh Penguins suffered their first loss in six games and will look to hit straight back against Florida Panthers. They have several injury concerns and will hope to have more forwards available as they head to Florida to face a team with just three wins all season. The Panthers made it three wins by claiming a shootout victory in their last game but will have to show further improvement against the Penguins, though they are likely to fall short with the team from Pittsburgh able to return to winning ways.
