The Penguins had two games over the week, on Friday and Saturday. The Penguins played the best team in the league Friday night, the Anaheim Ducks. The game came off to a slow start, where both teams couldn't generate any plays and barely any shots on goal. The Penguins would go on to win
5-2, and the goals were scored by Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Blake Comeau, and Patric Hornqvist (2).
The Pens played the next night against the red hot Los Angeles Kings. This was also a low scoring game, where the only goal scored didn't come until overtime. Patric Hornqvist was able to snipe the puck past LA goalie Jonathan Quick on a great play by defense man Paul Martin. Penguin goalie Marc Andre Fleury was able to get his league leading 9th shutout of the season.
The Penguins play next Monday night at 10 PM against the San Jose Sharks.
