PRE-GAME Notes: Pre-Season Game 2 (vs Chicago)

[UPDATE]
Jason Williams left practice early and Bylsma informed the media that he will be out of tonight’s game as a precaution.  Colin McDonald will take his place in the lineup.

What a treat!  Another hockey game for a second consecutive night.  This season really did creep up, didn’t it?

Another batch of Penguins players from the camp roster will be getting a chance to display their talents on the ice this evening and if it’s anything like last night’s performances then we should definitely be in for another entertaining game.

Again, tonight’s game will be on both radio (The X 105.9 and Penguins HD Radio) and TV (ROOT Sports Pittsburgh) this evening. Game time is set for 7:00 PM (est). Check back often leading up to the game tonight as I hope to post updates as I get new information.
