Two Questions

1. What will the reception for Dan Bylsma be like?

The long time Penguins bench boss makes his return to Pittsburgh, where he won a Stanley Cup with the black and gold. Now repping blue and gold, what will the story be surrounding Bylsma's return to Pittsburgh?

2. Wait, the lines are actually staying the same?

A day after we wrote an article about Bylsma's line shuffling, the lines at yesterday's practice were exactly the same as they were against the Flyers. The Sabres did score four in their victory in Philly, so it appears that success will lead to some consistency in the lines. Will we see equal (or more) success tonight?
