Bobby Farnham will return to Pittsburgh for the first time since being placed on waivers October 25.
Farnham has been a revelation to the Devils since acquiring him off waivers as he has seven goals and eight points in 28 games with 49 penalty minutes. The Penguins have not been getting a lot of scoring from their bottom-six forwards and to see Farnham doing so well has to hurt. "I don't know. Maybe a mixed reaction," Farnham said with a big smile when asked how the crowd in Pittsburgh would react to him. "I think some people liked me a lot there and I think some people thought otherwise. I liked playing in Pittsburgh and Wilkes-Barre (AHL). It was awesome." Jan 24 - 9:35 AM

Farnham said that he had jumped to try to avoid a collision with Erik Karlsson and he ended up getting a bit of a Charley horse.
