Both teams will play their second game of the season Saturday night as the Penguins are coming off a big win over the Capitals, while the Canadiens dropped their first game to the Toronto Maple Leafs in overtime.
As mentioned, the Canadiens lost to the Maple Leafs Wednesday night by a score of 2-3. They allowed Auston Matthews to score twice in this game, which included the game winner in the extra period. The Canadiens will need to regroup as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on one of the best teams in the NHL in recent years.
In game one, the Canadiens saw a 1-0 lead in the first period fall to a 1-2 deficit in the second period before tying the game a minute and a half later. The Canadiens need to focus on their offensive attack because two goals will not be enough to take down the Penguins.
In an offensive shootout, the Penguins outlasted the Capitals 7-6 in overtime. This game saw six lead changes and ten different players score a goal, but it finally ended when Kris Letang scored his second goal a minute and twenty seconds into overtime giving the Penguins the win.
The Penguins will look to tighten up their defending after allowing six goals to Washington in their opener. They should be able to pick apart this Canadien defense and score a handful of goals.
