Pens Points Friday: Oilers Gameday. Gagner Showcased At RW?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Pens visit old foe at his new digs. RNH studies Crosby's game. Gagner switch to RW just on time for Pens - coincidence or showcase? Gibbons earning a decent look, while being picked as an AHL ALL-Star. Pens and coaches say Olli Maatta's work ethic and ability to learn are unparalleled.

In the absence of a Pens game, went surfing on CenterIce. Got bored watching the Devils-Stars game (because NJ) and switched to Leafs-Canes. We all expected the score was going to be something bad for the Leafs, but didn't quite expect 6-1. Anyway, here's what's up.

The Pens week in Canada continues with a game at Rexall Place in Edmonton tonight. []
