Congrats, you've made it.
It's been a long offseason, complete with a series of ups and downs, but at last we've finally made it here together: welcome to the first day of the Penguins' 2011-12 season.
But hey, you still have a little further to go. After all, starting on the west coast against Vancouver tonight will require a little more time than expected to get this season under way. At least on the bright side we get some of these 10pm ET starts out of the way early on.
For those who may be new to the site or caught on during the summer, be sure to drop in for one of our many game threads. It's basically your online version of idle sports bar chatter, complete with pictures, quotes, comments and whatnot to really get you in the feel for the game. I suggest if you haven't done so already in the past, you jump on board tonight and get into the mix. What better opportunity than to watch the game on Versus and chat along?
We'll continue to roll some stuff out through the course of the day, I'm sure. Of course, the thread will drop around 10pm, so feel free to jump on board.
Only a few hours to go friends. Who's watching?
