From the Penguins: "Orpik confirmed that he will make his season debut tonight vs. Montreal."
Brooks Orpik coming back is obviously a big deal. The Penguins defense has looked off without him in the line-up. Orpik average 20 minutes and 52 seconds of ice time last year and he's a leader on the team both on the ice and in the locker room.
Once Kris Letang returns from suspension, you have to think that either Lovejoy or Engelland will be spending time in the press box.Add a comment
While we wouldn't call what the Penguins have with the Montreal Canadiens a rivalry, there is certainly some dislike between the two teams. When the Pens play the Habs you're almost guaranteed to see a competitive game and you'll most likely find someone new in bleu, blanc et rouge who you just can't stand.
Like it or not, it's always special playing Montreal. But that doesn't mean we have to like it.
So now, in pictures and video, we give you some big reasons to dislike the Montreal Canadiens... as if you needed any.

You see, by evidence of the league’s dealings with Comcast over the last few years, it has become obvious that Ed Snider runs the. Whose team stands to benefit most from having the Pens play an inordinate number of games early, while Sidney Crosby is injured? Why, Ed Snider’s, of course. Funny how it isn’t his team with the brutal opening month schedule, isn’t it? Coincidence? You decide.
