Penguins Redraw Assignments, Canadiens Steal Capitals UFA?

MONTREAL — The Pittsburgh Penguins play their first road game of the season Monday at the Bell Centre. It is nice not going to Buffalo or Detroit, and the late-night chicken shawarma was pretty good. The Penguins are redrawing assignments involving Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Teddy Blueger is close to healthy. Should the Montreal Canadiens swipe Sonny Milano from the Washington Capitals? The Flyers are playing inspired hockey, Patrik Laine is hurt, and the San Jose Sharks are soff.

Holy Steelers upset, eh? I listened to the game, then watched it later (traveling to Montreal). Who saw that coming? There was a sense of foreboding throughout the fourth quarter, but the Steelers’ offensive line is better than we thought.
