NEW YORK -- Following are the opening-day rosters for the four clubs who launch the 2008-09 NHL regular season this weekend in Europe. Bridgestone NHL Premiere 2008 commences Saturday in Prague, Czech Republic, with the New York Rangers taking on the Tampa Bay Lightning (noon, ET), followed by the Pittsburgh Penguins facing the Ottawa Senators in Stockholm, Sweden (2:30 p.m., ET). The same teams meet at the same venues Sunday, also at noon and 2:30 p.m., ET, respectively.
For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
