TV: NHL Network
Preseason Series: 1-0-0
Last Meeting: September 22, 2011. Penguins won 4-1 [Preseason]
What we said in our recap:
Not much to say about the game except that the Pens won, 4-1, and Jordan Staal scored two goals in the same game. Cooke scored a goal. Kennedy scored a goal. The first two periods of this game rivaled a Rush concert as the most uneventful occurrence in the history of CONSOL Energy Center. Then shit started happening.

This may resemble a real hockey game. Carcillo still sucks.
It's starting to feel like actual hockey now. The actual season is less than a week away. It's time to burn it down!
