4/13/13 Penguins v. Panthers - Official Game Thread

Postby shafnutz05 on Sat Apr 13, 2013 5:43 pm

GAME 42

PITTSBURGH (31-10-0) AT FLORIDA (13-21-6)

When we last saw the Pens, they were busy dismantling the Tampa Bay Lightning 6-3, in a game characterized by a solid effort from the Pens' role players and another strong effort by Juicy Jokinen. There also seemed to be a rather large contingent of Pens faithful in the arena as well.

This weekend, the Pens traveled further south (via I-75? I-95? The intrigue!) for the last matchup of the season against the Florida Panthers. The Panthers come in led by leading scorer Tomas Fleischmann, along with the hot young rookie Jonathan Huberdeau. Defensively, they are the worst team in the NHL, averaging about 3.5 goals allowed/game.

Projected Lines

Kunitz-Malkin-Iginla
Morrow-Jokinen-Dupuis
Cooke-Sutter-Kennedy
Bennett-Adams-Glass

Orpik-Letang
Murray-Niskanen
Eaton-Engelland

Fleury


Fleischmann-Goc-Kopecky
Skille-Mathias-Huberdeau
Rallo-Bjugstad-Upshall
Howden-Shore-Parros

Kuba-Gudbranson
Kulikov-Campbell
Brennan-Strachan

Markstrom


After tonight, the Penguins will get yet another four day layoff, heading into a key tilt against the Canadiens. Tonight, it's all about taking care of business against a crappy team and lighting the lamp as many times as possible. And ideally, a Doug Murray goal.

For all of my posts on this hallowed board, this is my first GDT. Do your worst.

LET'S GO PENS!!!

Dave Molinari ‏@MolinariPG 1h
This will be 125th time in past 206 games Penguins played without Crosby and/or Malkin. They have gone 79-36-9 in the first 124.

LOL what??

Molinari: There seems to be a very real chance that Malkin will be held out of tonight's game because of severe sunburn. Warmups could be revealing.

Part of me hopes Molinari was joking and there's a legitimate reason for Malkin being out that was less preventable than "sunburn"

Wouldn't be my first GDT if I wasn't getting flak from Rocco. I welcome it.

Dammit, no such luck. Here's the Molinari joke:

On the bright side, a severe sunburn might represent Malkin's best chance for an extended hot streak this season.

If Malkin got a bad sunburn and was ruled out, that's inexcusable. Obviously it's still a rumor, but I think that's grossly irresponsible.

My advice is to start drinking heavily.
