3/1/13 Penguins v. Canadiens- Official Game Thread

Postby Rocco on Sat Mar 02, 2013 7:33 pm

Preamble

Evening everyone. Just when it looked like the Pens were a fully operational battlestation they dropped two straight to Southeast Division teams and set off a minor panic through the fanbase. I wish Bylsma would just say they're throwing games to make it tougher for Washington to make the playoffs, even if the beating the Caps in the playoffs is a necessary step to winning the Cup. Luckily for them the Devils have lost 3 in a row and aren't taking advantage of the recent wobbles of the Pens. So thank you, New Jersey, for your charity. The Pens are capable of playing a complete game. At some point they'll get around to playing one. The pieces are there.

Tonight the Pens go on the road to face Montreal, who has the 2nd most points in the East. Tomas Vokoun gets the start tonight, allegedly because this is a planned start for him. Bylsma doesn't apply this same rigidity to his lines, but what's done is done. Bylsma's decision making has been curious lately; he's like the dictator whose mind is slowly going from him and starts doing crazy things like making his dog the regent. Vokoun is bound to bounce back from two rather rough outings. Tonight's game also sees the return of Mark Eaton to the Pens. I'll give him at least a period before I start calling him The Ghost of Mark Eaton, but after the first period all bets are off.

Standings so far: http://espn.go.com/nhl/standings/_/group/2 Philly has pulled themselves into 8th by virtue of playing more games than everyone else. The Pens still have a decent cushion over the 9th seed but nothing is for certain this season.

A Pens win will see a return to normalcy and all will be calm. A Pens loss means both this board and my Twitter feed will be unreadable and uninhabitable for the next 48 hours. I'm hoping for a win. Actually, I'll do better than that. I'll guarantee a win. Have fun, be energetic, and try not to be too negative or else monsters will eat you or something.

I'm torn tonight.....I want the Pens to win, but I also want Thierren to be able to thumb his nose at the "soff-ness" of the Pens highly overpaid First Rounders.

Go Pens....but if the Habs decide to play Thierren hockey, woe be to the Boys of Bylsma. Montreal will go nuts.....again....

58 has had some huge games in Montreal. Look for him to bounce back and get at least 2 points tonight. You heard it here first.

I hope this goes well. The book says that the way both teams are playing, this should be a systematic dismantling of the Pens.

For this reason, the Pens will win.

Well, with Vokoon in the net, Montreal is guaranteed at least 4....not that it's Vokoon's fault, the Pens "defense" (or is it the Canadian, "defence?").....
