KEY GAME INFORMATION
PITTSBURGH: LAST SEASON: 48-26-8, 104 points. Finished 2nd in Metropolitan Division. Beat San Jose Sharks in six games to win Stanley Cup.
COACH: Mike Sullivan (second season, fourth NHL season).
ADDED: D David Warsofsky.
LOST: G Jeff Zatkoff, F Beau Bennett, D Ben Lovejoy.
PLAYER TO WATCH: C Sidney Crosby. Less than a year removed from a prolonged slump, the two-time MVP is on a major roll as he enters his 12th season. Crosby won the Conn Smythe Trophy while leading the Penguins to the franchise's fourth Cup and followed it up by being named the MVP of the World Cup of Hockey while leading Team Canada to a title. He averaged 1.32 points after Sullivan took over for Mike Johnston in mid-December, a pace that would have won him the scoring title over the course of a full season.
OUTLOOK: The Penguins did little to tinker with a formula that led them back to the top for the first time since 2009. Crosby and teammate Evgeni Malkin remain the heart of the franchise and there's plenty of young legs (and a few older ones) in key supporting roles. The biggest question will be how the goaltending situation gets settled between Marc-Andre Fleury and Matt Murray, who backstopped the Penguins to the Cup after Fleury suffered a concussion late in the regular season.
OTTAWA: LAST SEASON: 38-35-9; 85 points; missed playoffs.
COACH: Guy Boucher (fourth season, 97-79-20). STORY FROM AMWAY Quiz: Tough or timid? This coaching style best describes you
ADDED: RW Mike Blunden, C Derick Brassard, C Chris Kelly, D Patrick Sieloff.
LOST: RW Alex Chiasson, D Mark Fraser, D Chris Phillips, D Patrick Wiercioch, C Mika Zibanejad.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Erik Karlsson. The two-time Norris Trophy winner has long been the subject of intense debate among hockey fans. Traditionalists argue Karlsson is a subpar defender, who yields scoring chances. Others counter that Karlsson's turnovers are overshadowed by his puck possession and the scoring opportunities he creates for his team. Karlsson is undoubtedly one of the league's top offensive stars.
PREVIEW
Pens aim to improve road record, starting in Ottawa

OTTAWA -- It would come as no surprise to see Matt Murray in goal for the Pittsburgh Penguins when they visit the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre on Thursday.

Murray, who has been sidelined with a lower-body injury since Dec. 28, was activated in time to serve as backup to Marc-Andre Fleury for Pittsburgh's 5-2 loss in Washington on Wednesday. Fleury, who gave up a tone-setting goal to Alex Ovechkin in the first minute, stopped 25 of 29 shots on the night, his first loss in four games since Murray went down.

Murray was off to an exceptional start this season with a 13-3-1 record and a 2.18 goals against average.

Meanwhile, the Penguins (26-9-5) remain only average on the road, where captain Sidney Crosby says they need to "pick up their intensity a little bit" to improve on record of 8-7-3.

"I think that on the road you have to have that little bit of extra desperation," Crosby said after the loss to the Capitals. "At home you kind of get that boost from your crowd. On the road you have to manufacture that within the group. I think we have to understand that we're going to get a team's best in their home rink. If we can elevate our desperation and our intensity, we've got to make sure we do that."

The Senators (21-14-4) haven't played since Sunday, when they were outshot 38-18 but still beat the Edmonton Oilers 5-3 at home.

The Senators haven't defeated the Penguins since a 4-3 overtime win in Ottawa during their miraculous run to the playoffs on April 17, 2015. They lost all three games between the teams in the 2015-16 campaign and were 8-5 victims last month, on Dec. 5 in Pittsburgh, their only meeting so far this season.

The Senators had a 4-2 lead near the midway mark of that one before the Penguins stormed back, with Bryan Rust capping the victory by putting the finishing touches on a hattrick with penalty shot and empty net goals in the third.

"When you get those types of leads you can't sit back on them," Senators winger Mark Stone said Wednesday. "They're going to just keep pushing. When you get leads, especially against the best teams, you have to continue to play your game and make them come 200 feet on you.

"We don't want to trade chances. I think when you watch teams that trade chances with them, they lose almost every night. You look at their roster and it's pretty deep.

We know that the only way to beat them is a structured game."

Mike Condon will be making his 17th consecutive appearance in goal for the Senators. Condon came on in relief of Craig Anderson in Pittsburgh, stopping the only two shots he faced in 7:08 of the third period.

"We saw that we can skate with them last time," said Senators coach Guy Boucher. "I think halfway through the game, we were exactly where we wanted to be. Then we got into a you know what contest with them. I don't think we want to do that again. They've got too much firepower on every line. If you're trying to be the best offensive team against a team like that you're going to lose. Want to make sure we're much tighter, especially in the middle of the ice.

"Hopefully we're able to reproduce what we did in the first half of that game."
