Preview: Jets at Penguins

“(Malkin is) a difference maker. He’s one of the elite players in the world,” coach Mike Sullivan told the team’s website. “He was playing really well when we lost him. To get him back will make us that much stronger.” While Pittsburgh has lost four of its last seven to teeter on the edge of the postseason picture, Winnipeg long has been removed from that discussion as the club embraced its selling mode by trading Andrew Ladd to his former team (Chicago) on Thursday. The Jets rebounded from seeing their captain depart later in the night as Mark Scheifele scored a goal and set up three others in their 6-3 victory over Dallas.<BR><BR><STRONG>TV: </STRONG>3 p.m. ET, RSN (Winnipeg), ROOT (Pittsburgh)
