Penguins vs. Blackhawks Open Thread

Blackhawks Blog: Second City Hockey

All right folks, we're almost there.  Just two more preseason games to get through this weekend and then we're well on our way to the regular season next Thursday.  I know we've all grown to hate Mondays with this whole work and school thing many of us do, but come Monday morning we're just four days away.  So maybe it won't be such a crappy day after all.

Looking ahead to tonight's game, the Penguins will be without (deep breath) Sidney Crosby (aforementioned hip discomfort), Ryan Craig, Evgeni Malkin, Mike Comrie, Dustin Jeffrey, Brooks Orpik, Zybnek Michalek and Dr. Ben Lovejoy.

Both Marc-Andre Fleury and Brad Thiessen will be splitting duties between the pipes tonight, so we can at least get a look/listen to that.  Full lineup after the jump.
