Pens open the CEC in style vs Detroit

Pens open with a 5-1 win

It’s preseason, this game means very little….

That being said, there will be much discussion around this game:

1. Why was there NO television feed for this game – granted, hearing Mike Lange call the first game in CEC brought back a lot of memories of youth. I still would have LOVED to see the game.

2. Mike Comrie scores the first goal in CEC history – Duff Man references abound….

3. A win to open the new rink

4. Brooks Orpik – Earned a Game Misconduct but only the folks in attendance actually saw what happened, the rest of us debate it because we only heard about it (Bandwagon to call Orpik a dirty player has left the station)

5. Ryan Craig, Brett Sterling – 2 names mentioned A LOT tonight

6. Chris Osgood – *shakes head* nah….too easy

7. Crosby didn’t play the 3rd period with a sore hip flexor

8. Letestu quietly put up 2 points

9. After goal music – Many negative tweets about it

Here’s the box score

Looking at this box score is a lot like have a 42 inch LED TV in your office and having to listen to it on the radio.

Yeah, that was me…..

Metz was jamming on Mariachi music….
