In Pittsburgh, two struggling teams are on the ice tonight. The injury stricken Pens battle the inconsistent Columbus Blue Jackets. The last time these teams played, Dubinsky sustained a suspension by cross-checking Sidney Crosby. Tonight, there is no Crosby, Fleury, and Letang for Pitt; however, the Pens hired Mike Sullivan and acquired Trevor Daley from Chicago for Rob Scuderi. For Columbus, Nick Foligno is out and Rene Borque is in.

Players to Watch
1. Brandon Dubinsky. Duber likes playing against Pittsburgh. Expect a big performance out of him tonight.
2. David Perron. A talented winger that JK knows well from back in St. Louis; he can score and was on a role early in his Penguins career. Hopefully, he can find his grove.
Enjoy the games tonight. More to come.…
