Quote Roundup: Pens-Flyers
Spoiler:
Here's what the Pens were saying in the locker room heading into the Battle of PA with the Philadelphia Flyers…
https://www.nhl.com/penguins/news/quote ... -293403674

ON THE MATCHUP
Crosby: "They play pretty quick, that was the big thing I noticed last year. They can get involved in the play. They've assembled a new line there that's playing pretty well for them. I think it'll be a fast-paced game, and a little rivalry there so it should be an intense hockey game."
Letang: "So far we've been playing all over, so to have a game that means four points, they're huge. Obviously right now we're kind of on the bubble, so we're going to try to climb up the standings and try to get some separation from other teams too."
Sullivan: "They're a very good hockey team. They've got some young defenseman, their first line has been very good for them, they have a dangerous power play. Their power play is in the middle of the pack but I think it's better than their numbers. They've got a dangerous power play, they've got a good team. Every time the Penguins and Flyers play one another, I think they are two proud franchises with histories of success. They're always emotional games, they're hard fought battles."

ON THEIR FIRST TASTE OF THE RIVALRY
Reaves: "(Brian) Elliot and (Wayne) Simmonds are both two of my good buddies. I met (Wayne) through Chris Stewart, we went to the All-Star Break and now we go to the All-Star break every year together. He plays physical, he's not afraid to get dirty. I love rivalry nights, I love the physical game. I always look forward to these ones."
Sheahan: "It's a rivalry, you can definitely see it. Obviously, my first one here. Should be a cool one and obviously a lot of intensity."

ON BUILDING OFF LAST GAME
Crosby: "Our compete level was there, we executed well, our power play was good. Had a big shorthanded goal there. I think just the way we competed was the biggest thing we took out of it. Just make sure that we continue that and continue to execute."
Letang: "I think in the last four or five games, we were playing a lot better than at the beginning of the year. We had good things happening for us, it was just a couple breakdowns here and there and that was costing our game, so it was good to have that game."

ODDS AND ENDS
Crosby, on scoring twice last game: "It's nice when they go in. As a team, as a line I think we've generated some good chances here these past few games, held onto pucks and generated some good zone time, and usually that translates into goals. We've got to continue to do that and the puck will continue to go into the net."
Sheahan, on his recent production: "Yeah, it helps putting some points up. I think when you can get the puck to Phil (Kessel) in a scoring chance, he has such a great shot he has such great offensive ability, he does a lot of good work there. Playing with (Jake Guentzel) and Phil is always a lot of fun, so have to give them a lot of credit."

Malkin and Cole to Chicago for Kane and Towes both with 50% retained.

Toews as backup goalie. Kane in Letang's spot. Letang to Cole's vacant place. Jarry to Wilkes-Barre. Call up Sestito for 2C. We're all set! :roll:

Pretty tame game. Not typical of a Flyer/Pens match up. It helps that Radko is out and working himself up the suspension ladder.

Murray with an apple on that, can't have Jarry outscore him.

We're only 5 points ahead of them. They have 4 overtime losses in that losing streak

I don't see Hakstol surviving this streak though.

That looked like a weak penalty.

So yeah let's give them a 5-3. Great !!

Mooseknuckle has been really good at screening the goaltender this year.

He can start doing it to the opposition's goalie any day now.

You can't tell me there's not a better & cheaper option in WBS.
