The Blue Jackets are set to release their Preseason Schedule on Monday, but the Penguins have released theirs already. It features a home and home matchup with Columbus as two of their last three Preseason warmups.
Thursday, Sept. 24, Pittsburgh at Columbus, 7:00 p.m.
Friday, Sept. 25, COLUMBUS AT PITTSBURGH, 7:30 p.m.
I grew up a Penguins fan before we were blessed with an NHL franchise here in Ohio and I still show them loyalty (except against the Jackets) so matchups between the two are very exciting for me. You better believe I'll be doing my best to be at those games should work allow it.
As a side question, is there anyone else who is still loyal to their pre-Jackets team? If so, who is it? Who do you pick in matchups between the two?
