The Penguins Western Canada road trip continues tonight as they make their first trip into the newly built Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta. In case you didn't know (before Steiggy tells you 94324239 times tonight), Connor McDavid is good and is leading the NHL with 74 points (4 more than both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin). Edmonton is actually good this year, and sitting in 2nd place in the Pacific Division. Currently, the Oilers would matchup with their Alberta rivals, the Calgary Flames in the First Round of the playoffs and we'd be 1093190 x for that. Marc-Andre Fleury will start for the Penguins tonight and Cam Talbot will get the start for Edmonton. Wayne Gretzky used to play in Edmonton so expect a bunch of Lemieux/Gretzky vs Crosby/McDavid references during the game. The Oilers are fun to watch so this game should be a blast. Also, did you know Justin Schultz used to play for the Oilers? This is Schultz' first game back in Edmonton since GMJR got him for a 3rd round pick last year (hehe).
Did you know Rogers Place is brand new this year?
Connor McDavid leads the NHL in scoring
Sidney Crosby still leads the NHL in goals
Despite being a trade rumor every year, Jordan Eberle is still in Edmonton.
Milan Lucic will probably do something and jam you up
Tom Sestito was suspended 4 games for his clean hit on Tobias Enstrom
Oskar Sundqvist was called up today by the Penguins
Pens play again after this in like 69 seconds
Getting really close to Game 69
Edmonton is fun so there's no reason to be mad
Im sure we'll find a way to be in the middle of the 1st period
