The Penguins hope the four-day layoff after Saturday’s win over Carolina won’t slow their momentum as the Christmas break ends and the NHL returns to action. The Pens take on the Detroit Red Wings tonight at PPG Paints Arena. Pittsburgh has won three straight to move into third in the Metropolitan Division with 42 points, five behind the first-place Capitals.
You’ll hear the Pens and red Wings tonight on 92.5 FM, U92 and the U92 Sportschannel. Airtime is 6 o’clock with faceoff just after 7.
