The seventh and eighth teams in the Metro Division will meet up on Tuesday and the fall of the two-defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins is one of the surprises of the season.

The Penguins are 1-3-0 in their last four and 3-7-0 in their last ten. The fatigue and depth factors appear to be catching up. Number one goalie Matt Murray has been back for eight of the games and started seven of them. He’s allowed 22 goals over that span or 3.14 GPG.

The offense has scored has scored 16 goals during those games or 2.0 GPG.

Last time out Detroit beat Pittsburgh 4-1.

Philadelphia had a strong first half of December, winning six straight to get back into the playoff race. But they are just 2-3-1 since then and have fallen to 16-14-8 which is good for eighth in the division.

Last time out they beat league leading Tampa Bay 5-3. This is one of the younger cores in the league and they are clearly going through some growing pains. They’ve scored 36 goals (2.77 GPG) and allowed 30 (2.31 GPG) since December 1st.
