Exhibition schedule announced

The Pens will play a seven game exhibition schedule, against Buffalo, Philadelphia, Ottawa and Washington. The games will be played starting September 19th and ending September 30th, including five games in the first six days.

Two of the games will be at the Mellon Arena - against Washington and Buffalo.

This pre-season figures to be interesting. The Pens are loaded at the center position, especially with Malkin seemingly on his way over here. They aren't so strong on the wings. There will be some good position battles, as Michel Therrien tries to put his stamp on this team from the outset. Of course, it's still too early to be talking about the upcoming season. After all, there are 97 days until the first exhibition game.
