After a disappointing 4-0 shutout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night, the 5X time Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins will begin a three-game road trip that kicks off with a match-up against the Florida Panthers at 7 p.m. Thursday night at BB&T Center in Florida.

The Panthers are just finishing a five-game homestand that began with a 6-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Monday, Jan. 21; a 4-1 loss against the Nashville Predators on Friday, Feb. 1; a 3-1 win against the Las Vegas Golden Nights on Saturday, Feb. 2; a 3-2 loss against the Saint Louis Blues on Tuesday night, and now ends with a match-up against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night before the Panthers travel to Washington on Friday.

The Panthers are 21-22-8 and are sixth place in the Atlantic Division.

The Penguins begin a three-game road trip that starts Thursday night in Florida against the Panthers, continues with the Tampa Bay Lightning Saturday night and ends with the Philadelphia Flyers Monday night.

The Penguins are 28-19-6 and are in third place in the Metropolitan Division and are two points behind the Washington Capitals and are four points behind the Metropolitan Division leaders New York Islanders.

When Thursday night comes around, the Pens and Panthers will meet for the second time this season. These two teams last played in Pittsburgh on Jan. 8 when the Penguins won that game by the score of 5-1 in which Zach Aston Reese got into a fight and had to leave the game and did not return.

Even though the Penguins still have injuries to Evgeni Malkin, Zach Aston Reese, and Justin Schultz, it should be an entertaining game on Thursday night in Florida as the Penguins look to end this two-game losing streak and get back in the win column.
