Although the season is young, I have a feeling this game could be a turning point. I just hope they don't look as bad as they did Tuesday night.

Penguins scratch Tangradi and Lovejoy. Niskanen (ankle) and Boychuk aren't in uniform, either.

Let's win and look good doing it, Pens. It's cold and windy 50 stories up on this ledge.

Unfortunately, I'm going to miss the game. Do work, PghSkins.

Boychuk was on OK City this morning so that's why he's not in NYC

This organization thought Lovejoy was better (right now) than Despres. What the hell are they looking at?
