Pens open against Flyers in Philly?
 
The Penguins will open the shortened NHL season with four of their first five games on the road, sources told the Tribune-Review Friday.

The home opener against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 23 will be sandwiched by a pair of two-game roadtrips.

The first will take them to Philadelphia (Jan. 19) and the New York Rangers (Jan. 20). The team will then head to Winnipeg (Jan. 25) and Ottawa (Jan. 27), the sources said.

The NHL schedule was to be finalized Friday and released Saturday upon ratification of the labor contract agreed to in principle last Sunday.

Last-minute changes to the schedule were still possible before its release.

PENGUINS OPEN ON TOP OF NHL POWER RANKINGS

The Pittsburgh Penguins open the 2013 NHL season on top of the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, ahead of the New York Rangers and Boston Bruins.

With a healthy Sidney Crosby and reigning MVP Evgeni Malkin, the Penguins have an abundance of skill and, even though they traded Jordan Staal to Carolina, remained strong down the middle by getting Brandon Sutter in return.

Pittsburgh's supporting cast and defence do present questions -- there are no flawless teams -- but the Penguins also addressed their goaltending concerns by adding Tomas Vokoun, to pair with Marc-Andre Fleury after Fleury struggled in last year's playoffs.

As for the Rangers, adding Rick Nash and having a healthy Marian Gaborik for the start of the season should give the Blueshirts the offensive firepower necessary to support Vezina-winning goaltender Henrik Lundqvist.

Eric Tangradi is slated to skate with Evgeni Malkin and James Neal on Monday.

The mystery regarding who will play left wing on center Evgeni Malkin‘s line may have been revealed Sunday. Tangradi skated with center Dustin Jeffrey and right wing James Neal. Jeffrey will leave that spot when Malkin returns. Tangradi might not.

“Eric Tangradi will be on the left, and James Neal will be on the right on (Monday),” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said.

Tangradi has just one goal in 41 NHL games but has never had an opportunity to play with Malkin or center Sidney Crosby. “I haven‘t been told,” Tangradi said. “Just to be on the roster is my goal, my focus.”

Crosby is expected to skate this week with left wing Chris Kunitz and right wing Pascal Dupuis. Center Brandon Sutter will be skating with left wing Matt Cooke and right wing Tyler Kennedy.

• Malkin was the only player not skating at Southpointe. He has played in the KHL during the past four months and arrived from Russia on Sunday morning. Penguins general manager Ray Shero said that Malkin is in terrific shape and will participate in camp shortly.

• Shero has until 3 p.m. Friday to decide on his final roster. Shero said there is a possibility that the Penguins will keep eight defensemen on their roster. Bylsma rarely dresses more than six defensemen.

1. Pittsburgh: Crosby healthy, Vokoun adds insurance in goal.
2. N.Y. Rangers: Adding Nash to Gaborik gives Blueshirts firepower.
3. Boston: Time for Tuukka Rask to backstop Bruins.

I have never watched a hockey game in my entire life. It just wasn't that big a sport when I was a kid growing up, so I never developed an interest in it. In fact when I was young the Penguins didn't even exist, they were called the Hornets back then.

That's fine. I'm going to guess that you're my Mom's age (by the Hornets reference...hell you could be my Grandma's age with that reference :chuckle:).

It was never a big sport in W.Pa. Not until recently. Neither was football for a long time though. The Steelers were a joke from the 30's-60's. Sure, we bred some good football players, but no one was going to Steelers games. Sort of like how no one is going to Pirates games now....even though baseball was the defining sport of the city for many years (when the Steelers were complete shit).

It's a new day. I fell in love with hockey when I was 4. The team sucked some serious ass, but I just loved watching it. Rinks in the area are on the rise. High schools are starting to produce some serious players. We are no longer just a football city. Check out the drafts. Every year there are more and more players from W.Pa.

If you have never had an interest in hockey, then what is your reason for commenting on a hockey related post?
