In their second preseason game, the Penguins battle back to score four unanswered goals in the third period to defeat the Blackhawks 4-1. Goals were scored by Staal (2) , Kennedy and Cooke. Nick Johnson was also a stud last night with 2 assists. Kennedy and Staal were both +3.
Ray Emery for the Blackhawks was in true form last night, giving up all 4 Pens goals. Looks like he'll be back behind the anchor desk on the NHL Network.
Pens host Minnesota for a day game Saturday in their last home preseason game. Puck drop is at 3:00 p.m. and can been seen once again on NHL Network for those living outside Pittsburgh. NHL Network would not confirm if Emery would be working.
Three more players were sent to Wilks-Barre/Scranton on Friday. Forwards Bryan Lerg, Zach Sill and Kevan Veilleux. A total of 39 players are left on the Pens training camp roster.
