For the first time this year we can officially say, "It's a hockey night in Pittsburgh!" Tonight the Penguins will play their first home game of the preseason against the Detroit Red Wings at 7:00PM.
The Penguins are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss to the Buffalo Sabres last night, and we can't tell you anything about it, considering it wasn't televised and we weren't going to sit around a radio for three hours. What we do know is that Zach Aston-Reese scored and that he's good at hockey. Apparently Jay McClement, who is vying for a spot as the team's 4th line center scored, as well as defenseman Olli Maatta, which I still don't believe. Apparently the Penguins had nine power play opportunities last night and they weren't playing our EASHL team on PS4. Impressive.
The Red Wings are coming off a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins last night. Apparently they were down 3-0 but came back to make it somewhat of a game. It's preseason, who cares. Either way, here's who's playing tonight.
Lineup (per the Penguin's website):
Lineup per Red Wings Beat Writer Ansar Khan:
-Ryan Reaves Penguins debut. I'm hoping he puts someone through a table.
-Greg McKegg is one of the best names in hockey, don't @ me.
-Tonight we get our first look at the NHL's best defenseman, Justin Schultz.
-Murray and Jarry splitting time in goal tonight. Can't wait to make a 'Fleury would have saved that' joke.
-Trevor Daley makes his return to Pittsburgh tonight after signing with the Wings this offseason.
-I know it's preseason, but who the hell are 75% of these Red Wings players?
-Oh God, the Red Wings have a Holmstrom again!??!
