Something we've done the past two offseasons is examine the recently revealed schedule, and just in case you needed a little bit more enticement to watch a team like the Penguins, come up with reasons to watch all 82 games on the slate.
So without any further delay, here's why you'll be watching in November.
Nov. 3 - at Ducks - Because you've waited far too long to yell something at Ryan Whitney:
Nov. 5 - at Kings - The former Penguins defensemen in Southern California reunion tour continues as you get your first look at Rob Scuderi in a Kings jersey:
Nov. 7 - at Sharks - Eric Godard want to make amends for this poor display last season versus Jody Shelley:
Nov. 10 - at Bruins - Because Mark Recchi is still getting it done:
Nov. 12 - vs. Devils - There might not be a better fighter with two hyphenated names than Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond:
Nov. 14 - vs. Bruins - Because Bruins play-by-play guy Jack Edwards might bust out a Dr. Claw-esque type of laugh somewhere along the line:
Nov. 16 - vs. Ducks - This could be your last chance to see Teemu Selanne in person:
Nov. 19 - at Senators - You might not like him, but you have to respect Chris Neil's guts:
Nov. 21 - vs. Thrashers - Ilya Kovalchuk is one of those special talents who can entertain you just in warm ups:
Nov. 23 - at Panthers - Because you need to learn more about the dangerous David Booth:
Nov. 25 - vs. Canadiens - We'll get to see if Mike Cammalleri was playing for a new contract or if he's the real deal:
Nov. 27 - at Islanders - Rick DipIetro might play one of his 10 games before he's shut down for the season:
Nov. 28 - vs. New York Rangers - Marian Gaborik might play one of his 10 games before he's shutdown for the season:
Nov. 30 - at New York Ranger - Because Henrik Lundqvist seems to be the one Ranger you really can't "hate:"
