It goes without saying that this is a big game. EVERY GAME AT THIS POINT IS HUGE.
The Penguins are currently 25-8-2 at home. The more games they can play at Consol in the playoffs the better. And the fact that they are right in the thick of things for the number one seed just makes all these games that much more important.
This is the only game the Penguins play against the Predators this season, who are also having a great season.
Last season the Pens won their only meeting in overtime, 4-3.
Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby (2), and Kris Letang were your goal scorers.
