I thought Vanek isn't even playing anyway, right?

With the news of Buffalo possibly even moving Pominville will they risk him to play?

Lots of trades which they got weaker and no Vanek, this one actually seems like a dangerous one

let's go Pens

This will be a fun one to watch just to see how the lines work out, and Iggy's first game after a real practice etc.

Unfortunately I'll have to flick between this and the Jay's opener tonight :/

Well they finally retire these things? Or are they just moving the last game with them to another night?

I think they are contractually obligated to wear them one more time. Hopefully they can find a way out of it and hold a mass bonfire with them.

Should be 22 I think. The team was at the roster limit of 23 before Sid went down with injury.

Rossi says no blue uni's but the Penguins retweeted something about wearing them for autism awareness.

Jeffrey is useless on the 4th line. Joey V should be there.

Not only that but it would be smart to dress Vitale for faceoffs alone.
With Sid out, that leaves a big hole there.

Wow didn't even think of that Just found out Vitale is actually two years old than Jeffrey, too. That was literally the last thing that I thought DB was holding against Joey V. Vitale must have like eaten the last doughnut one morning or something.

I'd guess they want to have him available to step in to TK's current spot if need be

KEEP CALM AND PLAY D
The Penguins have shut out their opponents in three straight games, not allowing a goal in the last 208:24 minutes of play – establishing a new team record. The previous team record was 187:30 set between Jan. 31-Feb. 13, 1993 (Ken Wregget/Tom Barasso). The last goal given up by Pittsburgh was to Philadelphia’s Claude Giroux at 14:09 of the second period on March 24.

The Penguins have now held their opponents to two or fewer goals in their past 11 games. During that span they have allowed just nine goals and have recorded four shutouts – with top defensemen Kris Letang and Paul Martin, who lead the team in minutes played, missing a combined six of those games.

Their transition to playing committed defense happened early in the winning streak after allowing 17 goals in the first four victories. While they knew they could keep winning games outscoring teams, they also knew having that mentality and getting into habits like that wouldn’t get them anywhere in the postseason.
