Ahhh today's the day, its last match up of the preseason, Jackets vs Pens. I know you're sad because the preseason is over ...but don't be! You know why you shouldn't be? Well in five days the Pens will #RaiseIt vs Washington.
There's not a whole lot to bring up with today's game other than Carl Hagelin will be making his preseason debut. The lineup will consist of the whole team minus Sidney Crosby, who is apparently a late scratch. Forward Tom Kuhnhackl was originally scratched from today's lineup, however he will be in due to Sid's absence. Tom Sestito will also slot in today's lineup. Finally, today is the annual "Free Game for Kids", so it's going to be very loud.
Penguins lineup: (via the Penguins website)
Blue Jackets Lineup:
(We have no idea what that lineup is, but Brandon Dubinsky is trash, Dalton Prout sucks, Jack Johnson is poor, and John Tortorella is a joke of a human being and coach).
WHO ARE THE STRIPES?
*No stripes available because it's the preseason so cool it*
Per Seth Rorabaugh of DK Pittsburgh Sports, Sidney Crosby was not on the ice for warmups.
Tom Kuhnhackl will likely play in place of Sid.
Crosby was originally supposed to play today, so now we're officially on #CrosbyWatch.
Dalton Prout sucks IAH.
Jack Johnson is still one of the poorest players in the league.
Jake Guentzel and Carter Rowney were sent to WBS yesterday.
Marc-Andre Fleury will get the nod in net.
ROOT Sports is celebrating the #Pens50 before the game today as they are playing Mario Lemieux's comeback vs Toronto in 2000.
It's going to be loud because of Kid's Day so good luck trying to listen to the broadcast.
