Penguins Vs. Ducks – Dec. 17

The Penguins had a good weekend. They won both games on Friday and Saturday, beating the Bruins 5-3 and then the Kings 4-3 in OT. The Pens had 3-1 leads in both games and, although both of their opponents rallied to tie up their respective games, the Pens came away with all four points. A couple of weeks ago, the Penguins would have surrendered those leads and wilted, but it seems as though we’re seeing a more resilient bunch of Pens these days. The Pens take the ice tonight for the third time in four days, facing another Western Conference opponent, the Anaheim Ducks. Winger Daniel Sprong makes a quick return to town with the Ducks after being traded on December 3. The move has been a welcome one for Sprong who has scored 3 goals in his five games since joining Anaheim including 2 against the Blue Jackets on Saturday night. It’s Pens and Ducks tonight on Rocky 96.5!
