7:00 PM PPG Paints Arena TV: NHL Network, ROOT Sports Radio: 105.9 'The X'
The Penguins will play their first ever home game at PPG Paints Arena tonight against the Detroit Red Wings. The Penguins have pretty much dominated the preseason so far, going 3-1. Don't look too far into that though because once again, it's the preseason. The Penguins will be going with what may be as close to their opening night lineup as possible, with Sidney Crosby being the only notable Penguin missing tonight.
Scott Wilson will skate alongside Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist tonight, as he is in the running to be a top six winger this season. Also newsworthy, Carter Rowney and Jake Guentzel will appear in their fifth straight preseason game tonight. Both are in the running to break camp and start with the Penguins, as they have obviously not been reassigned to Wilkes-Barre yet. Stay tuned because with Bryan Rust still injured, things may indeed happen.

WHO ARE THE STRIPES?
Scouting the Refs is still slacking so we don't have the stripes for you, stay tuned*
8 days away from tonight, the Penguins will raise their 4th Stanley Cup banner against the Washington Capitals.
As mentioned above, Carter Rowney and Jake Guentzel are still battling for a spot on the Penguins roster.
Marc-Andre Fleury will play all three periods tonight, so like I said earlier, this is as close to a regular season game as possible.
Still don't really know who's playing for Detroit tonight, despite seeing their roster. (Ignore the Dylan Larkin graphic, I made this prior to seeing the starting lineup).
Phil Kessel is a Stanley Cup champion and will be starting tonight.
The game is on ROOT Sports and NHL Network so there's really no excuse for not watching this one.
I don't know what else to write.
You're mad, aren't you?
