Gameday 19: Penguins @ Isles

Penguins @ Islanders

Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum | Uniondale, NY

Saturday, February 27 | 7:00PM Eastern


Welcome back to weekend gameday, the gameday that many have tried to silence through my wifi but like fgmjr I will never shut the fuck up.

Saturday night hockey in New York as the Penguins near the one-third marker of the season. It has been, predictably, weird. Injuries, nation wide pandemic, the league well on its way to being a super spreader in its own right, so yeah, weird.

The Pens are coming off a tough physical loss to the Caps in Washington. Jarry seems to be turning a corner (hopefully you caught Geoff’s radio hit and heard the good numbers. Subscribe to ARBORDOME on the rez patreon network).

The Pens have won their last 3 against the Isles and tonight is a first of a weekend back to back.


The big news obviously is that Jason Zucker died or something and is out for weeks. Bad news but ZAR seems ready to jump up in the lineup and contribute with Geno.
