Preseason games are especially hard to watch. It feels even worse this preseason. But the Penguins are getting some good stuff from third liners and their young D. Some shit:
Minnesota Wild (0-1) @ Pittsburgh Penguins (0-2) 7:00 PM – No TV Broadcast Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA The Penguins have lost both of their preseason games thus far, but honestly who cares. At this point, it’s all about projecting the look of the team, and even that has been hard to grasp with guys […]
There was only a faint Internet stream available for this game. It was the Columbus feed, and they are horrible. Some notes on this one:
Pittsburgh Penguins (0-1) at Columbus Blue Jackets (1-0) Nationwide Arena – Columbus, Ohio Game 2 of the preseason takes the Penguins to Columbus to play a familiar foe in the Blue Jackets.

Pens had to kill a penalty, but they didn’t because Pavel Datsyuk was on the ice. Tatar was left wide open in the slot, and Datsyuk […]
Detroit Red Wings @ Pittsburgh Penguins The CW Pittsburgh – 7:00 pm/et Consol Energy Center – Pittsburgh, PA It feels like training camp started twenty minutes ago, but the Pens play their first preseason game tonight at home against Detroit.
It hasn’t sunk in yet, but the Pens play their first preseason game Monday night. Here’s the roster.
Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin both did not skate in today’s open practice. But everyone else did. And they skated hard. Here are some thoughts.
