BLUE JACKETS BLOG: THE CANNON

Welcome all to the 2009/10 season here at PensBurgh.

If you're new to PensBurgh, howdy, and I hope you enjoy this website as much as I did when I joined it a year ago. With all my contributions to the site during the Playoff push, and a bit into the offseason, there was a lot of speculation where I disappeared during summer time. Some say that I was busy trying to grow a bigger playoff beard than this guy. Others say that I was running the streets of South Eastern Wisconsin madly singing, "We Are the Champions," confusing many Milwaukee Admirals fans.

More to the point, I've been quite busy setting things up with my fourth year of college, where I'm starting a sports writing internship this fall. But, seeing as I'm currently listening to this as I play this, I imagine that college life won't tear me away from the fun of PensBurgh any time soon. That all said, let's get cracking on the new year shall we?

NOTES

Hooks provided a lineup earlier, as well as some notes and facts for tonight.

It was last year, in the first game of the pre-season, that Sergei Gonchar was injured for the better part of the season. While it's never a given, let's hope to avoid any serious pre-season snafus such as that.

While this week's games are a lock for being on WXDX.com(link), it's a bit unknown if there is any major TV coverage for the preseason. If there are any means of which to see, or hear the game, do indulge the rest of us. Though, listening to Mike Lange call a Penguins game, on WXDX.com, is something I wouldn't pass up.
