As we noted earlier, Steve Mears has gone "from worst to first" and is working for the Penguins. He will host a show that will air on Penguins.com and on HD-radio in Pittburgh beginning October 1. He's also had the opportunity to call a handful of Penguins pre-season games, the last of which is tonight in Columbus (penguins.com if you'd like to check it out). Mike Lange, who has called Penguins games since 1975, remains the regular play-by-play voice of the Pens.
