1. Penguins vs. Edmonton Oilers – October 15, 2013
When the Penguins take on the Edmonton Oilers in mid-October, it will be the first Western Conference opponent that Pittsburgh has played since March 22nd, 2012.
It will also be more than two years since the Penguins have taken on the Oilers — the last time being on October 9th, 2011.
The game will feature plenty of offense — due to the Penguins leading the league last season in goals-per-game, and both teams being in the top-ten on the power play last season.
It will also be the Pens first look at the youthful lineup of Edmonton — which features forwards Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Nail Yakupov, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and defenseman Justin Schultz.
Consol Energy Center will be buzzing for their entrance back into Western Conference play against a blooming team of the future.
