The Pittsburgh Penguins won a thriller over the Maple Leafs on Tuesday night. Just 24 hours later, they'll face off again, with the Pens trying for their ninth straight win.

On Tuesday night, the Pittsburgh Penguins tied their game against the Toronto Maple Leafs with just seconds to go and ended up winning a thriller via shootout. On Wednesday, they'll hope to sweep the home-and-home, albeit perhaps with less theatrics this time around.

The Penguins will be looking to pick up more points tonight, as they are currently in third place, chasing both the Philadelphia Flyers and the New York Rangers in the Atlantic Division. They're also in search of their ninth straight win and hoping last night's stunner will have broken the spirit of the Leafs a bit.

Wednesday's game will begin at 7:30 PM ET at Air Canada Centre in Toronto. The game will be televised on TSN, RDSI and ROOT.
