But in terms of a taste of what lies ahead, the first NHL meeting between the rookie titans exceeded the considerable hype that preceded it. "It's exciting considering where we've been in the NHL," said Pittsburgh head coach Ed Olczyk, referring to last year's lockout. "It's something that was real special and a lot of people were talking about it."
