The Pittsburgh Penguins (30-19-5, 65 points) will get a welcome return to the lineup when they host the Winnipeg Jets (26-24-6, 58 pts) Saturday afternoon at the CONSOL Energy Center. After missing 15 games with a knee injury, center Jordan Staal will return for the Penguins, as Pittsburgh looks to avoid their fourth loss in five games. In his last nine games against the Jets, Staal has five goals and three assists.
The Penguins are coming off a four game road trip in which they went 1-2-1. The Jets, on the other hand, rallied in improbable fashion Thursday night in Washington, defeating the Caps 3-2 in a shootout.
