TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS (1-0-0) vs PITTSBURGH PENGUINS (1-0-1)
MELLON ARENA IN PITTSBURGH @ 7:30
Still no word on Sergei Gonchar, although speculation across the media believes it to be a separated shoulder. Official diagnosis from team docs is pending.
If you are tuning into a radio feed or watching the game on TSN, keep an eye/ear on Will Thomas tonight. He survived the cut and is making a real push for the team. The Tribune-Review published an article on him in today's paper. The Fox Chapel native may eventually fit the bill of the hometown hero a la the likes of his predecessor Ryan Malone. The Penguins signed Thomas back in July (Pensburgh coverage here).
For those in the Pittsburgh region, PittsburghPenguins.com is offering a live feed of the game. Those crazy, if not stupid broadcast regulations will only make it available to Pitt residents (IP blocking I suppose). UPDATE - PPP from Pension Plan Puppets suggested a Proxy server to view the games. Give it a shot.
Sidney Crosby will sit tonight with a sore groin. Rest of the lineup after the jump.
Take a look at that blue line tonight. Chances are we may be seeing this one for the start of the season.
