Preseason: Penguins at Blackhawks

The Penguins will take on the Stanley Cup Champion, Blackhawks, on Thursday during the nightcap.  Based on their first two performances, the Penguins will probably get blown off the ice tomorrow night.  Yes, it is only pre-season; however, I hate it when teams look at it that way.  If I make a mistake during job training, I should not say that it is only training.  In the same sense, pre-season is the training that the Penguins need.  One of the Penguins newest acquisitions will require a dictionary for most fans to pronounce.  This because he has two first names and two last names.  Let’s welcome Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond to the Pittsburgh Penguins.  The Blackhawks are coming off of a 2-0 shutout win over a Detroit club who whopped the Penguins 4-1.  We get to play the Blackhawks away tomorrow night, and then at home on Monday night at CONSOL Energy.  My Prediction: BLACKHAWKS 6 PENGUINS 2

Pittsburgh Penguins (1969 - 1971)

Chicago Blackhawks (1956 - 1964)
