Their last game took place on November 19, 2022, and resulted in a comprehensive 3-0 win for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bryan Rust was one of the main reasons for the Penguins’ triumph back then. He played 14:11 and earned 2 points by scoring one goal and assisting his teammates once. The Penguins’ goalie, Tristan Jarry, finished with a flawless 1.000 save percentage, despite coming across 32 shots. Connor Hellebuyck was between the sticks for the Jets and parried 29 of all the 31 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. When it comes to the latest five encounters, the Pittsburgh Penguins won four and the Winnipeg Jets triumphed once.

On January 10, the Pittsburgh Penguins faced the Vancouver Canucks, and in the end, the score was 5-4 in their favor. Evgeni Malkin was the team’s leading player on the floor, scoring 4 points. He spent 20 minutes and 22 seconds on the ice and tested the opposition’s goalkeeper with six shots. Two of them found the back of the net, and Malkin also had two assists. Dustin Tokarski’s performance also needs addressing, as he saved 18 of the total 19 shots on goal. The Pittsburgh Penguins have won three and lost seven of their last ten meetings, but two of those losses were in overtime or shootouts, earning the team an extra point. They are currently on a streak of two back-to-back victories. According to the schedule, the Pittsburgh Penguins will play the Carolina Hurricanes on the road on January 14.
