Mackey: Q&A with Steve Downie

Mackey: Could we see more Blake Comeau?

Looking ahead after Thursday’s loss

So, what now? Well, for one, Friday’s 11:30 a.m. Penguins practice should be interesting. Will forward Pascal Dupuis be there? Is he OK after taking a puck to the back of the neck during Thursday’s 3-2 loss to the Dallas …

Haven’t we seen this before? Two of the Western Conference’s best players come into Consol Energy Center on one of the preseason’s most hyped teams. Last week it was the Anaheim Ducks with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Tonight it’s …
