After last night’s rainout, the Livian Hernandez/Jeff Karstens grudge is all set to go tonight at 7:05. Can the Pirates outscore the Penguins today? Can they outscore the Lightning? More importantly, can they snuff this three-game losing streak out before it gets too long and put together a strong home series?
Brandon Wood is officially a Pirate tonight, which means Pedro Ciriaco’s time in black and gold lasted all of about 24 hours with a rainout and no games in the interim. Wood’s not in the lineup tonight, but he almost surely will be before this series with the Nats ends.
