It's the the beginning of a five game homestand for the Penguins.
They went 4-0 on their recent road trip and are now returning home.

It's also the season debut of the blue third jerseys and another return home for Ryan Malone.

"The Tampa Bay Lightning, which arrived to Pittsburgh late Friday and held a dinner-time practice at Mellon Arena, conducted an optional morning skate Saturday. One of the players opting not to skate was former Penguin Ryan Malone, who instead caught up with some old teammates."

— The Penguins official site

"Pittsburgh South" is no more as Malone is the only former Pen playing with the Lightning now.

Is this song still funny?


The Pens lines are the same as usual:

Chris Kunitz – Sidney Crosby – Bill Guerin
Pascal DupuisEvgeni MalkinRuslan Fedotenko
Matt Cooke – Jordan Staal – Tyler Kennedy
Mike Rupp – Craig Adams – Eric Godard

Brooks Orpik – Sergei Gonchar
Mark Eaton – Kris Letang
Jay McKee – Alex Goligoski

Marc-Andre Fleury


Here's our best guess at Tampa Bay's lines:

Alex Tanguay – Vincent Lecavalier – Steve Downie
Ryan Malone – Steven Stamkos – Martin St. Louis
James Wright – Jeff Halpern – Drew Miller
Todd FedorukZenon KonopkaStephane Veilleux

Mattias Ohlund – Victor Hedman
Paul Ranger – Andrej Meszaros
Matt Walker – Lukas Krajicek

Antero Niittymaki

It's a shame Talbot isn't playing against Niittymaki tonight:


Steven Stamkos has seven points in six games this year.
Rookie Victor Hedman has four.

Ryan Malone has six goals, no assists.



Do It.

Go Pens.
