Pittsburgh Penguins: Return Home To Face Montreal Canadiens

The Pittsburgh Penguins return home from their mini-road trip to play the Montreal Canadiens. On the ice, the road trip split a pair of games against the Winnipeg Jets and Minnesota Wild.

Unlike the Winnipeg game, the Penguins looked energetic and determined against the Wild. They managed to score four goals despite missing  the obvious assortment of injured players, plus Tyler Kennedy (concussion) and Kris Letang (suspension).

There were also a few moments of concern when fresh call-up Brian Strait went off with a hyper-extended elbow, Deryck Engelland took a puck to the dome, and Brent Johnson got twisted up in a Gumby impression.

Engelland and Johnson were okay and the team pulled of a nice road win.

Now that they return home to the Consol Energy Center, there is the potential to have a let down. Much like the road trip, the Penguins should look to keep things simple.

Here are four keys to victory.
