Ben Lovejoy made his season debut for the Penguins on Friday night.
He got the start in place of rookie defenseman Simon Despres and played 13:44. Lovejoy felt he had a really good training camp and was happy to get into the lineup. "In each of the games, [Despres] done some really good things, and he's also had some blips and inconsistencies in his play," coach Dan Bylsma said. "He's had good periods and followed it up with puck decisions and execution that weren't as good."
