Nothing like a PA rivalry to kick off a brand new NHL season! I wouldn't have it any other way TBH. We also learned that the Pens will have at least 7 of their 56 games broadcast nationally on one of the NBC networks.
as of now those games are:
January 17th vs. Washington Capitals [NBC]
February 14th vs. Washington Capitals [NBC]
March 7th vs. New York Rangers [NBCSN]
March 24th vs. Buffalo Sabres [NBCSN]
April 17th at Buffalo Sabres [NBC]
April 25th vs. Boston Bruins [NBC]
