ABOUT THE PENS

Penguins make their second visit of the season to the MTS Centre. The first was a 4-2 loss to the Jets on Jan. 25 in Game No. 4 of the season. The Pens are 3-3-0 on the road.

Pittsburgh comes off a 4-2 home victory over Ottawa on Wednesday night, bumping the team to 9-5-0 and into the top four in the Eastern Conference.

Pittsburgh's top-four power play (15 goals already) is led by James Neal's NHL-best six power-play goals.

As of Thursday, Pens' penalty killing was exactly middle of the pack, 15th, at 82.5 per cent but a full 15 percentage points better than the 30th-ranked Jets.

C Sidney Crosby was tied for second in NHL scoring, with 20 points in 14 games. He scored twice in Winnipeg the last time here, and has just one of his six goals this season on the power play.
