Penguins Gameday #5 (Islanders)

Penguins (1-3-0, 2 pts)
Islanders (1-1-1, 3 pts)
Where: Consol Energy Center
When: 7:00 ET

Ok so let's try this whole "christening the Consol" thing again. If the 3rd time is the charm, shouldn't the 4th time be magical, especially considering the Isles are playing with half of a team.

Opponents to Watch:

Blake Comeau- Clearly the best player the Isles are putting on the ice through 3 games. Lets cool him down a bit.

Rick DiPietro- He will either be solid or shaky. Pens have to get in his head early.

Nino Niederreiter- rookie looking good so far.


Pens will be without Michalek and likely Orpik again. I assume Comrie will be back in the lineup.

If you thought the Pens were getting hit hard with injuries, check out the Isles. Star center John Taveres is a game-time decision, Rob Schremp is out for at least a month, top d-men Okposo and Streit are both recovering from surgery, and Wisniewski is suspended for flipping off Sean Avery.
