After a disappointing 3-2 shootout loss against the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday, the 5X time Stanley Cup Champions Pittsburgh Penguins’ four-game road trip will continue with a stop in Nashville against the Nashville Predators on Thursday, March 21 at 8 p.m. at Bridgestone Arena.

The Predators are just finishing up a two-game homestand that began with a 3-0 shutout win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday, March 19; and ends with a matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, March 21.

The Predators are now 42-27-5 and are in second place in the Central Division.

After Thursday, the Pens will continue their four-game road trip in Dallas on Saturday, March 23 and end in New York on Monday, March 25.

The Penguins are now 39-24-11 and are in third place in the Metropolitan Division.

When Thursday night comes around, the Penguins and Predators will meet for the first time this season. These two teams last played in Nashville on November 11, 2017, which resulted in a 5-4 shootout loss.

Even though the Penguins still have injuries to Evgeni Malkin, Zach Aston Reese, Chad Ruhwedel, and Olli Maatta, it should be an entertaining game on Thursday night in Nashville as the Penguins look to end this three-game losing streak and to move two points ahead in the standings and be tied with the New York Islanders and be three points behind the division-leaders Washington Capitals and inch closer to winning the greatest trophy in all of sports, the STANLEY CUP.
