Potent Penguins in action
(AP) — Pittsburgh takes its high-scoring act on the road to Winnipeg tonight as part of a 10-game NHL schedule.
The Penguins lead the league in scoring with 45 goals, and boast three of the NHL’s top six scorers. Defending scoring champ Sidney Crosby once again tops the league with 19 points, line mate Evgeni Malkin has 16 and Patric Hornqvist 15. Malkin has at least a point in all 11 games this season.
Pittsburgh enters the game with the top-ranked power play in the league and the Penguins have killed off 30 straight penalties.
The Islanders are back at it tonight, riding high after an overtime win at Anaheim last night. New York continues its Southern California trip at Los Angeles.
Two of the Western Conference powerhouses square off when Vancouver visits San Jose. The Canucks have won four of five heading into tonight’s game. The Sharks are coming off a road trip on which they earned five of a possible six points.
