After an impressive 4-1 win against the Philadelphia Flyers in Philly on Monday night, the 5X time Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins face off against the Edmonton Oilers to begin a three-game homestand on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh.

The Oilers just finished a home game against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday, Feb. 9 in which the Sharks won by the score of 5-2; and now the Oilers begin a three-game road trip that faces off Wednesday night in Pittsburgh against the Pens.

The Oilers are 24-26-5 and are in sixth place in the Pacific Division.

The Penguins now come back home to begin a three-game homestand that begins on Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers on Feb. 13; continues with a match-up against the Calgary Flames on Saturday afternoon on Feb. 16; and ends with a match-up against the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon on Feb. 17.

The Penguins are now 29-20-7 and are tied for third place with the Columbus Blue Jackets and are four points behind the Washington Capitals for second place, and are seven points behind the Metropolitan Division leaders the New York Islanders.

When Wednesday night comes around, the Penguins and Oilers will meet for the second and final time this season. These two teams last played in Edmonton on Oct. 23, 2018,  in which the Penguins won that game by a score of 6-5 in overtime on an impressive goal by Sidney Crosby.

Even though the Penguins still have injuries to Zach Aston Reese and Justin Schultz, it should be an entertaining game on Wednesday night in Pittsburgh as the Penguins look for their second consecutive win as the team wears their gold “thirds” jerseys on Wednesday night.
