2013-2014 Pittsburgh Penguins Regular Season Thread
 
The 2013-2014 Pittsburgh Penguins regular season begins tomorrow night at the New Jersey Devils.

Discuss the season here!

What goals would you like the Penguins to achieve this season? What would you like to see them accomplish?

Personally, I would like to see:

1. The Penguins playoff streak of 6 consecutive years in the postseason continue.
2. Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin or James Neal win the scoring title, most goals scored, and lead the NHL in assists.
3. Marc-Andre Fleury bounce back from a poor playoff performance, and become an elite goaltender (again).

and with Vokoun looking like he's done for the year - the rumors are flying

Just spoke with a very reliable source who made it clear that the Penguins are not currently interested in Bryzgalov.

Great game by the Pens for the opener, as they shutout the Devils 3-0! Looks like a trip to the sports psychologist has helped Fleury. I know it's way to early to say for sure, but he played a tremendous game and definitely got some confidence back tonight. Hopefully he keeps it up.

The defense, even without Letang, looks really good so far. Loving the addition of Maata, and of course Scuderi. No doubt having Jacques Martin as an Asst. is making a huge impact (better watch out Bylsma!).

Offense kept the pressure on most of the evening, and the team also seems to have found it's gritty edge again. Lots of good hits tonight, and Glass standing tall with Clowe.

Excellent start to the season!

Neal injury means shuffling for Malkin line
By Rob Rossi
Published: Friday, Oct. 4, 2013, 1:06 p.m.
Updated 10 hours ago

Right winger James Neal is out indefinitely because of an upper-body injury. A look at what the Penguins will be missing:

The real deal for Evgeni Malkin is he could be skating with a lot of different linemates for a while.

James Neal, the regular right winger on a second line centered by Malkin, is week-to-week with an unspecified upper-body injury, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said Friday.

Neal has not practiced since Sunday. He took only five shifts and played fewer than four minutes in the Penguins' 3-0 season-opening home victory over New Jersey on Thursday.

No opponent — certainly not the Sabres, who visit Consol Energy Center on Saturday night — will feel sorry for such a blow to the Penguins' offense.

Malkin, after all, is one of two former scoring champions (Sidney Crosby) on a roster that also includes wingers Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis — a top-line duo that combined for 133 goals the past three seasons.

Still, Bylsma conceded Friday that his Penguins lack any one player to replace what Neal can bring.

“I don't think a replacement or a guy next to (Malkin) should think about trying to be a James Neal,” Bylsma said. “He scores 40 and does certain things for a reason.”

A big reason — and this is a point Malkin and Neal repeatedly have stressed over the past three years — is an on-ice bond so strong that often one of Bylsma's biggest challenges is finding a left winger for his second line.

Jussi Jokinen had convinced coaches he was the fit for that opening, and the Penguins' lines during practice on Friday suggested he would remain to Malkin's left.

To Malkin's right at practice was Beau Bennett, who as a rookie last season occasionally was the left winger with Malkin and Neal.

Bennett, the Penguins' 2010 first-round pick, has progressed rapidly in the view of coaches, who had viewed him as offensive catalyst on a third line alongside center Brandon Sutter.

Bylsma did not commit to Bennett staying to the right of Malkin's in Neal's absence. He also said the opener against New Jersey likely provided a blueprint for how the Penguins will use Malkin while Neal is out.

After Neal left that game, Malkin skated four shifts as the right winger with Crosby and Kunitz. Malkin also centered a line with Tanner Glass to his left and Craig Adams on the right.

“That will probably continue,” Bylsma said

I was really impressed with his performance on Thursday night. Wow. What a great way to open the season. MAF is capable of turning in that effort every night. A great, confidence building W for the team, too. You never know what the Devils will bring.
