The Pittsburgh Penguins fell to the hated Washington Capitals on Thursday, when will they have an opportunity to bounce back.
The Pittsburgh Penguins had a rough go of things in there last game against Washington Capitals, and they won't have very many opportunities to make things right over the weekend. They only have one game, against the Buffalo Sabres, this weekend.
The Sabres have played just two games so far this season and are 2-0 so far this year, beating the Ducks and the Kings. They've had just about a week off, but they face the Hurricanes tonight. The game with the Penguins will be the second of back-to-backs which should help the Penguins a little bit because they can rest on Friday.
We'll have complete coverage of this game on SB Nation Pittsburgh, but for more on the Penguins check out PensBurgh. For more information on the Sabres head over to the terrifyingly named Die By The Blade blog.
