Game #1 - at Carolina Hurricanes

Pittsburgh Penguins (0-0-0) at Carolina Hurricanes (0-0-1, 1 pt)

Carolina lost their home opener in OT, so they're going to be angry. They were also lit up like a Christmas tree on the power play by the Habs. Here's hoping the Pens can do the same.

The Pens, for their part, welcome some new faces. Sydor, Hall and Sykora will all make their Penguins' debut. If there's an offensive weakness, it's that there are only three right-handed players, and none of them are defensemen or big time goal scorers. Do you know who they are? Think quick before you read...

Armstrong, Hall and Laraque

Another quick fun fact - the Pens have four guys that are 6'4", which is the tallest on the team. Know who those four guys are? Three are pretty easy - Staal, Malone and Whitney. The fourth? Dany Sabourin! I didn't know that...

Hurricanes blog - Take a look at Stormbringer's Blog of Madness. She has some thoughts on the loss to the Canadiens and the crappy announcers she had to put up with.

This will be tough for the Pens. Playing in Carolina under the shadow of Ron Francis is always difficult.

Let's Go Pens!
