It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for the Penguins to play, and surely coming off a bad game the wait has been even longer.
Here’s what you need to know, lines are as follows:
Jake Guentzel - Sidney Crosby - Patric Hornqvist
Carl Hagelin - Evgeni Malkin - Phil Kessel
Dominik Simon - Derick Brassard - Bryan Rust
Matt Cullen - Riley Sheahan - Daniel Sprong
Brian Dumoulin / Kris Letang
Jack Johnson / Justin Schultz
Juuso Riikola / Jamie Oleksiak
In net, making his season debit will be Casey DeSmith as Matt Murray is officially now day-to-day with a concussion. At the other end it will be backup Malcolm Subban between the pipes for the Golden Knights, replacing a tired Marc-Andre Fleury who has played two of the last three nights.
The Pens look to get above .500 in the third game of the season and their third game at home. They head up to Montreal on Saturday before returning home for the friendly confines of PPG Paints Arena to host Vancouver next Tuesday as this slow schedule moves along a quiet October.
But, first things first, it’s Vegas. Talk about the game with Pens fans here.
