It's an exciting offseason day when you can wait for the 2009/10 season schedule to drop. But finally it is here, and over the next day or so I'm sure we'll talk it into the ground with ridiculous over-critical analysis. Or something like that.
Yesterday the Net was abuzz with a rumor that Pitt would open the season against the Islanders. As it turns out, the Penguins actual open the season up against the Rangers at home on Oct 2. First game of the season at home. Stupendous. And against a division rival no less. Perhaps the rumor was a bit misguided for Pens fans, because the Islanders actually open their season against the Pens. So it's going to be #1 team against #1 pick on October 3.
Quick glance at the schedule shows the Pens have 14 separate occasions in which they play back-to-back games, two of which come within the first week of the season.
Full schedule after the jump. See what you like/don't like and let's chat it up.
