GDT: Playoffs Rd.1 Gm.1: Pens vs. RUgs ;) 4/16/15

Postby dagny on Thu Apr 16, 2015 5:15 pm

Your Pittsburgh Penguins are taking on the NY Rugs in game 1 of this Stanley Cup playoffs. . .
Spoiler:
I will refer to them as the rugs today, in honor of Dish's amazing haiku stream. :thumb:

Rugs update: Nash missed practice Wednesday because of the flu, but will play in Game 1. Nash missed the last two games of the regular season with an undisclosed injury. Defenseman Kevin Klein, who missed the final 16 games of the season, will not be in the lineup because his broken left arm still is not healed enough to allow him to re-join the team in practice.

Goalie Henrik Lundqvist returned from his vascular injury to start seven of the final eight games of the regular season. He was 5-2 with a .924 save percentage and allowed only 12 goals in his past six starts. Defenseman Marc Staal missed the past two games of the regular season with an undisclosed injury, but will play Game 1.

COACH UPDATES
Mike Johnston confirmed that Taylor Chorney and Brian Dumoulin will be the team's bottom-6 pair of defensemen. Both will be making their career postseason debuts. Christian Ehrhoff and Derrick Pouliot were both ruled out due to injury.

We embrace our mascot:

Our theme song:

And old school good juju. . .

Be excellent to each other. . . leave the battles on the ice.
The quest starts now!

Are you flipping kidding me?

NBCSN is messing up their coverage and they just turned on the ManU Premiere League game on their streaming for the Pens game

Maybe he was alluding to the importance of the games and not the Pens actual play?

Don't remember if Beau was in the rangers series last year, but if he wasn't , only 8 of 20 players remain from that line up

If he was talking about the Pens play, it's going to be a quick 4 games!

I guess ignoring guys entering the zone and allowing yourself to be beat to the net is on Fleury.
