The Pittsburgh Penguins will have a relatively quiet weekend as they play only one game, a matchup with the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have not been playing their best hockey so far this season. That's understandable of course because Sidney Crosby (their best player) has yet to suit up, and Evgeni Malkin (their second-best player) has missed a significant amount of time. While they could be playing better, they have weathered the storm early in the season pretty admirably. They are 5-2-2 with plenty of room for improvement, which is pretty good if you ask me.
They'll have a chance, albeit a mild one, to improve their record when they host the the New Jersey Devils on Saturday; the only game they will play this weekend. The Devils currently stand at 3-1-0, but they will host the San Jose Sharks on Friday before they head out to Pittsburgh for their matchup with the Penguins.
We'll be following this game all weekend, so keep checking back to SB Nation Pittsburgh for complete coverage. For more info on the Penguins head on over to Pensburgh.
