In case you missed it

Know the enemy
In case you haven’t heard, the Pittsburgh Penguins are looking for revenge on the Black and Gold after being swept in the Eastern Conference Finals just a few short months ago. Outside of Jarome Iginla’s departurem the addition of Chuck Kobasew and the emergence of Olli Maatta, the Pens roster mostly remains the same. Moreover, goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is finding his groove again thanks to the arrival of assistant coach and former Canadiens and Senators bench boss, Jacques Martin.
At 8-4-0, the Pens sit atop the new-look Metropolitan Division. They are also the only team in the division with a winning record. Will Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and company get their revenge against the defending Eastern Conference Champions? Stay tuned.
