Why you'll watch - October - 09-13-10

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Something we've done the past few offseasons is examine 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. (And we're a little lean on material until camp starts next week.)

Here's why you should watch in October.

Oct. 7 - vs. Flyers - Because well... Rivals. A new building. The potential for an akward goal celebration between Arron Asham and Matt Cooke. Do you really need any other reasons to watch this game?

Oct. 9 - vs. Canadiens - Because Marc-Andre Fleury is still looking for this puck:

Oct. 11 - at Devils - One of these days, the Penguins are going to beat the Devils right?

Oct. 13 - vs. Maple Leafs - Because, Colby Armstrong, even if he doesn't play for them, is still your favorite Penguins:

Oct. 15 - at Islanders - Because the Islanders' brilliant throwback jersey can not be ignored:

Oct. 16 - At Flyers - Because the Flyers are trying to convince themselves that Michael Leighton is a real NHL goaltender:

Oct. 18 - vs. Senators - Because you want to see one of the best defensemen in Penguins history make his return to Pittsburgh:

Oct. 21 - at Predators - Because Shea Weber will destroy you if you don't watch:

Oct. 23 - at Blues - Because the Penguins still can't find a shooting lane on Jaroslav Halak:

Oct. 21 - at Lightning - Because Steven Stamkos just knows where to be:

Oct. 30 - at Hurricanes - Because the Penguins tend to have some pretty close games with the Hurricanes:
