PREGAME

Greetings from brisk but clear Pittsburgh. It was in the low 40s most of the day but there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Not a bad day for late November. A few pregame sights. The sun setting on North Braddock:

-The east end of Consol Energy Center:

-The main entrance:

-The glass wall on the west end with the Moon hanging overhead:

-Mellon Arena:

-Downtown Pittsburgh at twilight:

-The ice:

-These are the kind of lame-o but free hats being given out tonight:

(Hopefully there's a hat trick tonight so no one has to wear one of these home.)

-This has nothing to do with hockey, but what the heck is up with Virginia Tech's uniforms these days:

-They have more uniforms than Oregon it seems anymore. Give us the simple Corey Moore days please:

-Some sights around the arena. This might be the jersey of the night. Steve Larmer Rangers:
