Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh Penguins Collide Tonight

Francois GendronSenior Writer IOctober 9, 2010

After a 3-2 loss against Toronto on Thursday, the Montreal Canadiens will play for the first time in the new Pittsburgh Penguins' arena.

Pittsburgh really want to win this one. Christopher Letang even used the word ''revenge." The Canadiens eliminated the Penguins and closed down Mellon Arena in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals last spring.

Many players in the Penguins' dressing room genuinely hate the Montreal Canadiens for that, and are seeking revenge starting with tonight's game.

On Montreal's side, Michael Cammalleri cannot wait to begin his season after serving his one-game suspension. Cammalleri had 13 goals in 19 playoff games last year and was a large reason for Montreal's postseason success.

This should be a good one.
