Looks like mother nature didn't want to play along. WC is now gonna be played at night, starting at 8 o'clock eastern.

I would have liked to see it played during the day, but maybe under the lights it will look even cooler.

Yeah, I think it'll be cool too. I'm not upset about it being delayed since I got stuck with going to a family function during the day.

I was trying to find a way out of it, but thought it would be really selfish of me to cancel plans for a hockey game lol. Works out perfectly now!

I have read that some of the players mentioned glare from the afternoon sun during Friday's practice as a concern, so they think a prime-time game may cure that problem

Pascal Dupuis wears a Steeler helmet during that practice

Loved seeing him in the Steelers helmet! Great pic!

That alumni game was broadcast pretty weakly on the NHL site yesterday. Had to listen to Steve Mears for almost 2 hours, a couple of times the cameraman would be scanning the benches while a goal was being scored and it ended in a tie. Fans were booing at the end because of it.

NHL.com was also nice enough to stream the Pens (and Caps) practices and family skates. It was airing on NHL Network as well, so it wasn't nearly as bad as watching the alumni game.

I found this searching around this morning. It's the Pens shootout drill...just keep an eye on Fleury.

I've seen Fleury do that in shoot-out practice before, including doing jumping-jacks while the shooter approaches, or even turning-around, bending-over, and looking at the shooter through his-own legs, then spinning-around to make the save

Well...finally just got to watch the game this morning and I suppose, even though the Pens lost, it was worth the wait. They played hard, but just didn't get the lucky bounces. We'll get 'em next time we see them.

Oh, and I have to say, while the game itself was exciting...and pretty much what I expected, the job by NBC and the camera crew was absolutely horrendous. I don't know who thought it was a good idea to go to blimp cam during power plays, but they're f-ing morons. Lucky it wasn't a boring game or else the whole thing would have been completely ruined for me.

Completely agree about the camera angles NBC chose throughout the game. I hate when networks think they need to get all spiffy with shit and technology when just keeping it simple is so much better.

Great to see Jordan back though, and it was fun, just wish we got the W but loved seeing Kunitz giving Ovi a serious facewash at the end.

And of course Philthy beat Detroit today, so we're tied with them in points (and they have the edge in the division). Wish the Pens could have beaten either the Caps or Isles to keep a little bit of a cushion there.

Penguins Sign Defenseman Engelland to 3-Year Contract Extension
Monday, 01.03.2011 / 10:20 AM / News
http://penguins.nhl.com/club/news.ht...fb-pghpenguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Deryk Engelland to a three-year contract extension, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.

The new contract goes into effect at the start of the 2011-12 season and will run through 2013-14. The average annual value of the deal is $566,700 over the term of the contract.

With the signing, the Penguins have locked up all seven defensemen on their current roster to contracts beyond this season: Alex Goligoski (2011-12); Ben Lovejoy (2012-13); Brooks Orpik (2013-14); Kris Letang (2013-14); Engelland (2013-14); Paul Martin (2014-15); and Zbynek Michalek (2014-15).

Engelland, 28, is in his first full season with Pittsburgh. He has posted five points (2G-3A) and a team-leading 76 penalty minutes in 32 games. The 6-foot-2, 202-pound blueliner made his NHL debut last year with Pittsburgh, playing in nine games and recording two assists and 17 penalty minutes.

Engelland, who originally signed with the Penguins organization as a free agent in the summer of 2007, played the previous three seasons with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League. In 231 career games with WBS, he posted 42 points (10G-32A), a plus-11 rating and 402 penalty minutes. Engelland appeared in 39 playoff games with WBS and helped the team earn a berth in the Calder Cup Final in 2008.

The Edmonton, Alberta native was originally drafted by New Jersey in the sixth round (194th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft. He has played with WBS, Lowell and Hershey of the AHL, and Las Vegas, South Carolina and Reading of the ECHL during his career.
