Pens Fall to Sabres 6-5

Hey pens fans,
Tonight, the Pens took on the Buffalo Sabres at the Mellon Arena, in a preseason matchup.

The Pens goals were:
Crosby (Malkin, Armstrong)
Staal (Recchi, Crosby)
Crosby (Malkin, Whitney)
Malone (Christensen)
Christensen (Malone, Whitney)

Sabourin was in goal.

The Pens had a goal just as the buzzer went off at the end of the third, but is was ruled no goal. It was a crazy game with tons of goals and penelties. Malkin missed a penalty shot early on.

The Pens looked pretty good, but there are still some kinks to work out in our defense.

I don't think the changes in the striping is that drastic, but the promises of the new material seems like it could be a welcome change for the players, as far as comfort. that is yet to been seen after they play a few games in them.
