7:00 p.m., CONSOL Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA
After having to deal with the God awful fans at the Bell Centre it will be nice to not hear booing every single time there is an icing call or any time a player falls over his own two feet. What an embarassing fan base. As a hockey fan I truely respect what the Montreal Canadiens have done and their storied history but I can't stand to listen to the Penguins play there.
Concussion Gate is upon us. Now every media member in Canada is a doctor. Holiday Inn should have no shortage of peole to fill the "I'm not a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night" commercials. Just unreal.
Word is that Geno might not suit up either. I haven't seen anything concrete so this is mere speculation.
Geno should sit out. It's January. Someone else needs to step up. If Geno does play, he needs to step up also. No question about it.

Tyler Kennedy - Jordan Staal - Evgeni Malkin
Chris Kunitz - Mark Letestu - Pascal Dupuis
Matt Cooke - Maxime Talbot - Chris Conner
