Pens Vs. Oilers – October 24

The Penguin’s 7-1 loss on Saturday night also cost backup goalie Antti Niemi his job. The Penguins waived Niemi yesterday after just three starts, all losses, posting a 7.50 GAA and a paltry .797 save percentage. To make up for their cut backup, the Penguins recalled Casey DeSmith from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. It’ll be Matt Murray between the pipes tonight when the Pens suit up to take on Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers. McDavid hasn’t scored since an opening night hat trick, and the Oilers have gotten off to a slow start with just a 2-5-0 record through the first seven games. The Pens look to bounce back tonight against the struggling Oilers. Here’s your digital preview:
