Penguins Gameday #13 (Dallas)

Penguins (6-5-1, 13 points)

Stars (6-4-0, 12 points)

Where: American Airlines Center

When: 8:30 ET


Pens are going out west for the week and it all starts in Dallas tonight. Stars are surprisingly good this year but the Pens should be looking to start this west swing off strong.

Opponents to Watch:

Brad Richards- Really one of the more underrated players in the NHL and he's off to a good start. He co-leads the league in assists, but he can also score.

Stephane Robidas- Two-way defenseman with a wicked shot and a scrappy mentality. He can put points on the board AND he also leads his team in Plus/Minus and PIMs.

Loui Eriksson- When he shoots, he hits the net. And scores quite a bit. Pens should put a big physical d-man on him to keep him from shooting.


-Of course Staal isn't returning, though he did undergo sucessful surgery yesterday.

-Letang, Malkin, and Goligoski are all GTDs. HCDB said that he is optimistic that they will all play, so make of that what you will.

-Nobody was called up yet from WBS, so that must mean that the Pens either are waiting until the last minute or trust the health of Letang and Goligoski.

-Dallas is healthy.
