Superstars Sidney Crosby
and Evgeni Malkin
will line up on opposite sides of the puck during the Penguins intra-squad “Black and Gold Game,” which takes place tonight at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pa.
Crosby joins Sergei Gonchar, Jordan Staal
and Kris Letang
on the black squad, while Malkin, Bill Guerin, Ruslan Fedotenko and Marc-Andre Fleury
will wear the home colors.
Pittsburghpenguins.com will have a live blog of the event, and will stream the action live with Steve Mears providing a play-by-play call and Grimm working the crowd and getting fan reaction.
The much anticipated event sold out just hours after tickets were made available. All the proceeds from the game go to the Penguins/United Way Charity Fund.
