Sabres at Penguins Game Thread

With James Neal out, Beau Bennett is jumping up to Evgeni Malkin's line. Now is his time to really shine (get it?). Add Jussi Jokinen and you have a lot of handsy skill on the second line. That could be really fun to watch if/when they find a rhythm.

Interesting quote from Malkin after the morning skate.

I'm ready. I'm excited to play. The first game I was a little bit nervous. I played all right. I can play better and will

play better.

I guess no player, regardless of skill, is immune to butterflies the first game of the season.

Buffalo has had a bit of a rough start to the season. They're going to look to turn the tide with Jhonas Enroth in net.

Go Pens.
