- - Montreal 20 - 6 - 5 in 31 games played for 45 pts, second in the Eastern Conference
- 7 - 2 - 1 in their last 10 games played
- 11 - 2 - 2 on the road, pretty formidable, very similar to the Pens
- P.K. Subban, will he try to cut off Sutter's foot?
- Pens in the midst of [CENSORED] streak.
- Morrow and Letang in tonight, no Malkin
- Murray will not play tonight
Plots and Sub-Plots
Michel Therrien returns to Pittsburgh for his first game behind the bench at Consol Energy Center, and his second meeting with his former NHL employer this season.
Brenden Morrow joins his new team, and will be paired with Neal flanking his right, and either Jeffrey/Sutter anchoring.
Letang was removed from the IR, and will play tonight. Despres was sent down to accomodate Letang and recent roster moves.
Continued big expectations from our first line, with Malkin still absent.
- 1.) Max Pacioretty - 9g - 16a - 25pts
2.) Tomas Plekanec - 12g - 10a - 22pts
3.) P.K. Subban - 9g - 13a - 22pts
4.) Andrei Markov - 5g - 16a - 21pts
5.) David Desharnais - 8g - 10a - 18pts
Carey Price in goal.
