Hello fellow Pens fans and great morning to you all. We are officially 30 days away from the start of the 2015-16 NHL season and I cannot be more thrilled. That is until October, of course.
With that being said, a quick update here with more to come in the coming days/weeks.
I will be attending the Penguins November 14th contest against the New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center. It will be my third time seeing the Pens live and first time in an away arena. Reasons for this are pretty simple:
I've been pretty good luck for the Penguins in the past, as they've outscored their opponents 5-0 in both Mellon and Consol. Hopefully that luck will continue in Jersey.
WBS= "We Be Seeing" Some Baby Pens
I apologize for the title. Sometimes attempting to be clever looks foolish.
Nonetheless, I plan on attending a fair share of WBS Penguins games this season as well. The ride is quick, the games are fun, and you can't beat the crab fries...seriously delicious.
I'm curious to see how the team will play this year with Matt Murray returning, a host of AHL veterans with ample NHL experience, and of course Bobby Farnham. Some younger players return as well.
It's a favorite for my father and I to attend these games and this season will be no exception.
Hockey to me is like professional wrestling, my other sporting passion (and yes, it IS a sport). I can't get enough of it. The speed, endurance, hitting, and absolute skill that these players exemplify, no matter what league they're in, is fascinating and at times, awe inspiring to me.
The chance to see both teams play this season is one that I look forward to and will share personal thoughts and opinions on throughout the year.
There may be some more Wilkes-Barre/Scranton coverage this season, which I'm excited to bring to the page. This and some more updates will follow shortly.
Until next time, "Is it October yet?"
