After an impressive 4-1 win against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night, the 5X time Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins will face off against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night at 10 p.m. in Anaheim as the Penguins begin a five-game road trip.

The Anaheim Ducks just finished up a home game against the Ottawa Senators that ended in a 2-1 overtime loss on Wednesday night.

The Anaheim Ducks are now 19-17-8 and are in fourth place in the Pacific Division.

The Penguins just finished up a three-game home stand that began last Friday night with a 4-0 shut-out win against the Winnipeg Jets on Friday night, followed by a 5-3 loss against the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night, and ended with a 4-1 win against the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Now the Penguins begin a five-game road trip that begins in Anaheim on Friday night.

The Penguins are now 24-13-6 and are in second place and are two points behind the Metropolitan Division leaders Washington Capitals.

When Friday night comes around, the Penguins and Ducks will meet for the second and final time this season. These two teams last played in Pittsburgh on December 18 when the Anaheim Ducks defeated the Penguins by the score of 4-2.

It should be an entertaining game on Friday night in Anaheim where the Penguins look for their second straight win to begin their longest road trip of the season.

The Penguins will be without Zach Aston Reese and Patric Hornqvist, but head coach Mike Sullivan said that Justin Schultz will make the trip with the team.
