Gameday With Dan - Carolina Hurricanes

When: 7:00pm
Where: Consol Energy Center

News and Information: Pittsburgh will be without Crosby and Malkin for the second straight game. Pittsburgh will be wearing the blue thirds tonight. Malkin also has a sinus infection. The Staals are brothers.

Player to Watch: Carolina Hurricanes
Eric Staal: He currently has 22 goals and 25 assists for 47 points on the season. His style of play will be handy against a Pens team hurt by injuries. He has also been named a captain of his all-star team along with Nick Lidstrom on Jan 30th at RBC Center.

Player to Watch: Pittsburgh Penguins
Chris Kunitz: Without Crosby, Kunitz has been one of the Pens better players recently. He was riding a three-game goal streak before the Pens loss to New Jersey. Pittsburgh is 10-2-1 when Kunitz puts the biscuit in the basket.
