Change the security clearance for one Blysma, Dan. Let him watch with Lemieux. He can call down plays from up top.

Bennett will be benched because the toe drag he pulled on Krug was too risky and HCDB doesn't approve.

Niskannen sits and is replaced by Despres OR at a minimum is not paired with Letang. That pairing doesn't work.
Iginla moves to Crosby's right wing.
Tyler Kennedy plays.

Keep the intense style shown in Game 3. Miss the posts, hit the twine.

Rask is due for a crack-up. I think the Bruins will blink and fail to close out the Pens tonight.

Letang - Orpik
Eaton - Engelland
Depres - Murray

Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis
Cooke - Malkin - Neal
Iginla* - Sutter - Morrow ***** I would sit Iginla and put Jokenin here but that is just me.
Kennedy - Vitale - Adams

3 - Vokoun in Goal

4 - Maybe forecheck like you are playing for the Stanley Cup at some point ? Some investing ? The "investment" into the game plan that the Penguins has shown is comparable to the real estate market in 2008. Too fake, and too weak to really sustain success.



Calling for Martin to be out should automatically get you banned for life from this board or any other form of hockey discussion. He was not only the Pens best D last game and for the entire duration of the playoffs, he was their best PLAYER in the last game. Seriously! And you want to keep Murray in the line-up? Stick to rugby!

I want a speed line up inserted. Kennedy Vitale and anyone else who can skate out there.

Only change of front was Kennedy in for Vitale at the morning skate. Martin missed the skate and orpik was paired with Engellend which I'd say means he's scratched. Despres was paired with Bortuzzo. Eaton was with Letang. Guessin Eaton is back in which is dumb. Need some more size with skating. Would rather see Bortuzzo AND Despres than eaton and Nisky.

He was missing from practice again today. Since it's the playoffs, we won't find out why he's being held out.

Potential last game of the season and they won't go all out with changes up front. Keep banging that drum.

can't score a goal to save their lives, and they won't go back to the 10-36-19 line.

Can somebody post the lines?

Maybe Vokoun will start another 200+ minute shutout streak.

Hasn't Paul Martin set up 50% of our goals this series? I think he played extremely well the other night.

there's a typo in not listing sutter with the defensemen, but it's close enough

How can anyone actually watch a game and think Martin deserves to sit?

He's been our best defenseman throughout the series and it's not even close

Eaton for Engo
Kennedy for Vitale

There are your huge and awesome changes by Disco that will swing everything in our favor. Eaton wasn't good enough to play against the Isles and wasn't good enough to play against Boston in Game 1, but tonight will be different.

I'm not concerned about personnel. I'm concerned about how they play. I believe I read the Pens have had 3 shots off rebounds this series. Considering the problems they've had scoring, it is insane that they haven't made adjustments to get more traffic in front of Rask.

Why change anything? Game 3 was their best effort of the series. Although I wouldn't be opposed to Nisky eating popcorn.

He is usually decisive and precise in his passing.
He is usually in perfect position defensively.
He rarely takes himself out of position with emotion.
He rarely takes a penalty out of frustration or missed opportunity and continues to work.
He has a bit of offensive swagger and creativeness.
He plays with a DEFENSE-FIRST approach.

If Martin had a little more top end speed, start-and-stop speed, and a little more size he would probably be top 3-5 dmen in the league imo. God didn't grant him those abilities so he is what he is. Don't let last years Zbynek Michalek drag-down not see just how good Martin really is. Martin is playing how Martin played in NJ, and that is very very very sound defense and worth every penny he is making. Last year was the fluke.

their best effort of the series wasn't good enough. they need goals and they need to tilt the ice with sustained pressure.

should have loaded up on offense, but oh well. a bottom 6 of

10-36-19
24-16-48

would have been appropriate for tonight. sorry, adams. he's been good for what he is, but we need to dig deep to find scoring.
