The Pittsburgh Penguins opened their 2011-2012 season with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Vancouver Canucks. Their next game is in Calgary against the Flames.

It is probably advantageous for a team to see their flaws early on in the hockey season. Both teams got a glimpse of areas where they can improve in Thursday night's game.

For the Pens, there were some pleasant surprises and some areas that reared their ugly head just as they did last season.

With any luck, the Penguins will take two more points in Calgary tonight. If you are looking for some in game commentary, follow me on Twitter @shootinthepuck .

The eight slides that follow will likely be topics of discussion. There will also be things that surprise us as well.

After one game, the Penguins certainly showed that they have room to improve. They also reminded their fans what a strong, talented team they are with their ability to find some way to get two points.
