2-minute Drill: Pens Look to Get Back on Track Against Wild

Your daily regional sports update.

  • Pittsburgh looks to avoid a fourth defeat in five games Tuesday night when it hosts a Minnesota Wild team seeking at least a point in five straight without one of its top scorers.
  • Pitt coach Jamie Dixon delivered on his promise to utilize his full roster this season. Eleven players received playing time in the first half of the Panthers’ opener against No. 10 Gonzaga on Friday before the game was halted because of hazardous court conditions.
  • Six District 9 athletes recently signed National Letters of Intent to continue their athletic careers at the next level.
  • The Steelers could have a dilemma on their hands if Landry Jones misses significant time.
  • Since joining the Big Ten in 1993, the Penn State Nittany Lions have produced the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year five times. They were LaVar Arrington in 1998, Courtney Brown in 1999, Michael Haynes in 2002, Jared Odrick in 2009, and Devon Still in 2011. That number should become six with the addition of Carl Nassib.
