Jets Vs. Penguins: Pittsburgh Can Approach Playoff Spot With Win On Tuesday

The Pittsburgh Penguins will host the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night with the chance to clinch a Playoff spot.


The Pittsburgh Penguins are coming off their first loss in almost a month against the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. They'll have a chance to get back on track when they host the Winnipeg Jets at the CONSOL Energy Center on Tuesday. The game starts at 7 pm and can be found on ROOT Sports.

The Pens can't quite clinch a playoff spot Tuesday with a win over the Jets, thanks to tie-breakers, but they can come close. The Penguins have 94 points so far this season and would be in first place in every Eastern Conference division besides their own, where they trail the Rangers by three points.
