The Penguins are looking to snap a two-game losing streak. After shutting out the New York Islanders, 4-0, last Friday, the Penguins dropped consecutive games to the New Jersey Devils – 3-2 in overtime Sunday at home and 6-4 in New Jersey on Wednesday.
Penguins defenseman Sergei Gonchar saw his five-game points streak come to an end Wednesday. However, rookie Colby Armstrong extended his points streak to five games. He had one assist against the Devils and how has three goals and three assists in his last five contests. It is another lengthy rookie scoring streak for Armstrong. He had an eight-game points streak earlier, which tied for second-most among NHL rookies this season with Boston’s Brad Boyes and Washington’s Alexander Ovechkin.
