Penguins Vs. Devils – February 27

The Penguins return home tonight to PPG Paints Arena to take on the New Jersey Devils with a different look. The Pens traded for Derick Brassard on Friday, giving them incredible depth at Center. In exchange for Brassard, the Pens sent Ryan Reaves to Vegas and Ian Cole to Ottawa. Cole was then promptly traded from the rebuilding Senators to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Devil’s front office, led by former Pens GM Ray Shero, also made moves at the trade deadline, securing Michael Grabner from the Rangers and Patrick Maroon from the Edmonton Oilers. Both teams will feature their new players when they face off tonight at PPG Paints Arena. Unfortunately Matt Murray took a puck to the head in practice yesterday and now will be forced to sit with a concussion. Casey DeSmith was recalled from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to compensate for the ailing Murray. Here’s your PuckDrop for tonight’s game:
