Earlier this week I made mention of the fact that I felt preseason hockey marked the unofficial switch to "on" for the hockey season. Well, if Pittsburgh's two wins weren't enough to get you in the mood, then perhaps the ramped up media coverage will start to give you a good feel for it.

You know it's hockey season when you open up Google Reader and your "Penguins News" tab is flooded with more than one story about the team. This past summer it was the obligatory "Crosby Update," but in offseasons past you've seen everything from arena updates, "where are they now" vignettes and prospect features.

With that said, here's what's cooking around the Pittsburgh media today as the Pens head up to their 3:00 meeting today against the Minnesota Wild.
