OFFICIAL GDT PENS @ BJS GAME 4 4/23/2014

Good evening ladies and gentlemen...reporting to you live from beautiful Columbus, OH, as we get ready for Game 4 tonight in Columbus. A city so excited about their hometown BJs, that it appears their trees are at least a month ahead of schedule...interesting. Anyways, so far in this series, these names have loomed large for the Penguins:

Bennett
Martin
Sutter
Stempniak
Gibbons (RIP)
Niskanen
Orpik (gasp)
Fleury*

*save pct still below .900 tho lulz

INTRO: When these playoffs started, we knew that we were going to need to get significant help from our depth scorers if we were going to make a serious run into the postseason. Well, we certainly haven't lacked for that so far, but it has matched an equally slow start (on the goal sheet, anyway) from our top scorers from the regular season.

Tonight, the Pens have a serious chance to put the clamp down on this series, having already wrested home-ice advantage back from Columbus after giving it away in Game Two. The fact we are still winning this series with how poorly we've played for large stretches of it either speaks to our resilience or Columbus' lack of serious talent....or perhaps both.

I have a feeling tonight, we witness the resurrection of Crosby and Malkin. Yes, the Bible says three days, but Bylsma runs a country club and gave his boys an additional three days to find their way out of whatever cave they are buried in. At least one of them will score tonight...itshappening.gif

And if you're not down with that, Sid and Malkin have two words for you:

True but it is REALLY close. he is at 89 of 99 so far. That means if he has a better start than Monday and stops the first shot, then he gets to 90%. If he gives up 3 tonight (the number given up each game so far by the WINNING goalie) then he'd need to stop 28 to get up to 90% - if he only lets in two then he'll only need 19 saves to get there. I'd love to see a shutout and have the number bump up significantly.

In the end, while I'd love to see them dominate, I don't care what the score is if we come out on top. Of course I will be terrified if we are up 3-1 at any point in the game.

I honestly just want to see hard working hockey and good defensive zone play for the first time in a few years...out of the Pens.
