Conklin DOES Get The Nod!

Ty Conklin WILL start in the NHL's Winter Classic held inside the confines of Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, New York as his Pittsburgh Penguins take on the host Buffalo Sabres at 1pm EDT TODAY!

It is Ty's second start in an outdoor game and he brings a 4-0 record, a 2.71 GAA and a .912 save percentage into the match-up since his call-up back to the NHL a few short weeks ago.

His last outing saw him build a 26 save shutout of those very same Buffalo Sabres - who happen to be his last NHL employer before coming to the Penguins.

Ty's first adventure into the outdoors resulted in a 4-3 defeat at the hands of the Montreal Canadians when Ty played for the Edmonton Oilers in the Heritage Classic. Now he gets a shot at redemption and a chance to extend his perfect record in the first outdoor NHL game on American soil, our Winter Classic.

Tune in to your local NBC station for all of the excitement. Penguins, Sabres, outside in front of 70,000 and a national television audience! It's the NHL's Winter Classic on NBC!

And of course,

Go 'Cats!
