START ME UP
Good morning hockey fans. Tonight the Pens will battle the Maple Leafs in Toronto's Air Canada Centre. Toronto opened the season with a heartbreaking 4-3 home loss to rival Montreal Canadiens, giving up the winning goal in the final minute of regulation.

Here are some game notes to get you ready for the action...
  • The Penguins play their first road game of the season against the Toronto Maple Leafs (TV: ROOT SPORTS; Radio: 105.9 the X) at Air Canada Centre.
  • Prior to losing their first road game to the Florida Panthers last season (6-3 on Oct. 11), the Penguins had won five straight road openers.
  • Pittsburgh is 20-18-8 all-time in road openers.
  • This marks the third time in club history that the Penguins have played their road opener in Toronto. The most-recent time was Oct. 14, 2002, a 5-4 Penguins victory. Mario Lemieux and Aleksey Morozov had two goals and two assists each. Current Penguins assistant GM Tom Fitzgerald was in Toronto’s lineup that night.
  • On Oct. 16, 1968, the Penguins and Maple Leafs tied, 2-2, in Pittsburgh’s first road game.
  • The Penguins are 5-3-1 in their last nine visits to Toronto.
