The Week Ahead: Two Tests

November (15 games) is the Penguins' busiest month other than March (16 games.)

It gets off to a bit of a slow start:

First trip to MSG

The shithole, known as the "World's most famous arena, " got what seems like it's 500th renovation. The Penguins travel there Wednesday. The Rangers got off to a terrible start because they had to play 1,000 games on the road, but they are heating up. Should be a fun matchup. First time we get to see a non-Torts Ranger team.

St. LOLouis

Perennial choke city, the Blues are again having a good season. They are 8-2 and somehow only in FOURTH PLACE in the Western Conference's Central Division. Alex Steen somehow has 18 points. Just another player for David Backes to lean on, since he sucks.

By the Numbers

0- The number of goals Sidney Crosby has against the Blues

5- Number of games the Penguins have won by 3 goals. Second best in the NHL.

10- WIns by Marc-Andre Fleury already, leads the NHL.
