Penguins Vs. Senators Preview: Pittsburgh Looks To Knock Off Struggling Ottawa

The Pittsburgh Penguins face the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night at Scotiabank Place.

The Pittsburgh Penguins travel to Ottawa to play the Senators tonight in a battle of two teams heading in opposite directions. The Penguins are the hottest team in hockey. Pittsburgh has won 13 of their last 14 games and has been revitalized both by the return of star center Sidney Crosby and the inspired play of Evgeni Malkin.

Malkin has been a terror on opposing teams lately. During Pittsburgh's 13-0-1 streak, the center has 13 goals and 11 assists. Crosby has been good too, though he's yet to score a goal since his return to the ice from a concussion.

Ottawa is struggling. The Senators have lost five of their last six games, and were defeated 5-1 by the Montreal Canadiens on Friday.

According to a report, Brad Thiessen will start in goal for the Pens tonight.

Game date/time: Saturday, March 24, 7:00 p.m. ET

Location: Scotiabank Place, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

TV: CBC, ROOT(HD)
