The Pittsburgh Penguins have lost two games in a row and their Atlantic Division is currently seeing a three-team dogfight for first place. The Philadelphia Flyers have won four straight, sitting atop the division with a one-point lead over the Pens. Hot at their heels are the New York Rangers, who are 6-3-1 over their last 10 games.
It's with this battle in mind that the Penguins head into the weekend. On Saturday, the Penguins will visit the New York Islanders, their 9-11-6 division rival that is currently residing in the cellar. Pittsburgh is hoping to get back on the winning track against a lesser opponent and hope to at least not lose any ground in the battle for first place.
The game against the Islanders will kick off at 7:00 PM EST on Saturday, December 10. The game will be televised on ROOT (HD). The Pens will return home on Tuesday to host the Detroit Red Wings.
