If Bylsma sours on Vitale (like he typically does after a few games) I'm sure we'll see the Juice.

Also, it is improbable that the Pens would go 3 more rounds without at least a couple of injuries.

I'm oddly calm. That will probably change, though.

I'm getting a strong feeling that the heavens are going to open up on the Red Scarf brigade and its going to rain down hard on The Ottawa Sens tonight!

How do the pens compare to the sens as far as being a physical team? Am I wrong to believe the Sens are a pretty physical team?

I think he should be in the line-up. I believe he'd be more effective against the Sens than the Isles.

Our most physical players:
Letang, Cooke, Morrow, Murray and Kunitz

That's a nice amount of physical players to have. Dupuis, Neal and Iginla can all throw the body.

I'd have to say that the Senators are about equal, but I expect them to come out playing a more physical game than the Penguins to try and set the tone.

Truthfully, I'm expecting a bloody series. It's gonna get nasty.

Yup. The Penguins don't need as much speed in the line-up, but at the same time this team has shown me that playing with a stacked four lines is not necessarily so grand. While on paper it looks great to have Jussi Jokinen as our fourth line center, but the fourth line needs play a very specific role.

That being said, I could see him dressing as the extra forward for specific situations.

The argument would be:

Morrow-Jussi-Cooke
??? - Sutter - ???

JJ can use his skills with that third line; it doesn't make sense to put him out there with any of the 4th liners.

I agree. It's a tough but great dilemma to have. I really don't have an answer to it.

But who would you sit to play Jokinen? TK, who has owned the Sens throughout his career?

I honestly don't know. I think the only way JJ gets in the line-up is if someone gets injured or someone isn't delivering.

The only thing to consider is sitting Sutter which wouldn't be my first choice. However, JJ was playing great with Morrow and has a better FO% so far in the playoffs.

There has been some media chatter that the bad blood generated by the February incident in which Pittsburgh's Matt Cooke severed the Achilles tendon of Ottawa's Erik Karlsson could spill over in brawls and cheap shots, but I think each team realizes that the stakes are too high to get carried away. That said, Ottawa's physicality could wear down -- if not sideline -- Pittsburgh's key players, who all have a history of injury problems. Whatever physicality the Senators throw at them, the Pens will have to stand up to it without losing their discipline while handing out some punishment of their own

When did ottawa start being recognized as a "physical" team? Is this all because of the Gryba hit?
