    Game News/Notes


    Following the announcement that starting goaltender Matt Murray was diagnosed with a concussion the Pens turn to DeSmith, who will start Thursday night when Pittsburgh hosts Vegas at PPG Paints Arena.

    "I've been having really good practices lately. I felt good out there," DeSmith said. "I got all the new gear broken in so that always good. Beginning the year is always rough in that way for me. Everything is coming together for me."


    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikola

    [​IMG]


    Thursday should be the official NHL debut of Juuso Riikola. The youngster opened eyes in preseason and unfortunately sat the first two games while the defense gave up goals left and right. I'm very interested to see how the kid plays as preseason is over and we need someone to step up big time on defense.

    While it will take a team effort for a much needed better effort on defense, hopefully the youngster brings a spark.

    I can't wait to see the goaltending duel between two elite guys at the top of their game; Murray and MAF. Should be worth the price of admission alone!

    I hope VGK doesn't destroy us too badly. This is the perfect situation for that struggling team to break their slump.

    All I hope for is Bryan Rust scoring a goal and Riikola playing well.

    I might miss this game but I am betting it'll be a lot of DeSmith doing his stupid slide out save that puts him way out of position for rebounds and mayhem ensues.

    Golden Knights are having a problem of putting pucks in the net and we have a problem keeping pucks out of ours.

    Somethings gotta give here :popcorn:

    @ColePens you choose gifs that aren't of Tom Hanks to represent the Penguins?

    Don't like the 4 days off.
    Bet it's just as sloppy as Game 1.
    Maybe Riiks can sturdy things a bit tho.
    This has to get on the rails on some point. The sooner the better.

    If there is one thing this core group deserves some heat for it's their lapse in focus (mostly regular season). If they have 4-5 days off, they come out unprepared (under any coach). If they play back to back, they come out tired and unprepared. :laugh: How many times have you heard Sid, Geno, Letang, or even MAF over the years say "We need to be better" after a cruddy loss and then same ole stuff happens with lazy play.

    Oh well. We shall see tonight.

    That's been the plan for a week, now.

    The way MAF has been this year, I'd rather he be in net. Him and Murray would have been fighting to see if either team could get 10 on the board.

    I'd be very surprised if Fleury skips this one, even if he played last night

    I'm deserting the Pens tonight and going to watch the LA Kings instead :laugh:

    That means it will be a great game and the Habs will steamroll the Kings.
