The Penguins start off November with a two-game set in California as they take on the San Jose Sharks on November 3 and the Los Angeles Kings on November 5.
When the Penguins visit Los Angeles, they will see a team anchored by former division rival Mike Richards. Only time will tell if he pushes the Penguins' buttons like he did as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Also, Pittsburgh will get to see former teammate Rob Scuderi run the Kings' blue line for the third year in a row, the final on his contract.
November 12 will see the Penguins visit the Carolina Hurricanes. This is always an interesting game, as I think there's a reference in there about how Jordan and Eric Staal are related. In case you don't know, you'll be reminded about 50 times during the game.
The Penguins will go to Florida on November 17 to take on the Tampa Bay Lightning for the first time since the Bolts eliminated them in the 2011 Eastern Conference quarterfinals. They come back home for Thanksgiving week for two games before and after Turkey Day. The St. Louis Blues are in town on January 23, and Sergei Gonchar and the Ottawa Senators will be in Consol Energy Center for an evening game on Black Friday.
November ends with a visit to New York City to take on the New York Rangers. I think Jordan has another brother there. But again, not to worry if you still can't make the connection. Isn't it great having TV announcers who inform us of the same thing in every broadcast?
