After they won against the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 on Tuesday night, the 5X time Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins will play the Colorado Avalanche Wednesday night at 9:30 p.m. at Pepsi Center in Colorado.

The Colorado Avalanche had an unexpected 2017-2018 season as they made the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs and were eliminated by the Nashville Predators in five games. The Avalanche finished the 2017-2018 season with a record of 43 wins, 30 losses, and nine overtime losses, which equated to 95 points and a fourth-place finish in the Western Conference.

The Avalanche won 3-2 in Nashville Tuesday night and are on a two-game homestand with the Penguins on Wednesday night and Saint Louis Blues on Friday night. They are now 14-6-4 and are in second place in the Western Conference.

The Penguins are now 10-8-5 and are in sixth place in the Metropolitan Division. They are finishing up a brief two-game road trip before coming back home to PPG Paints Arena for a three-game homestand with the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night, Colorado on Tuesday night, and the New York Islanders on Thursday night.

When Wednesday night comes around, the Penguins and the Avalanche will meet for the first time this season, and then they will play each other one more time in Pittsburgh on December 4.

Even though Pittsburgh has injuries to Patrick Hornqvist, Matt Murray, Matt Cullen, and Justin Schultz, it should be an entertaining game on Wednesday night in Colorado as the Pens look to keep the momentum going.
