GAME 42PITTSBURGH (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 LinesKunitz-Malkin-Iginla
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!!!
