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….
