tl;dnrbmalas: The Avs skaters aren't as good as their record indicates, and Varlamov is their MVP.
WHY THE PENS WILL WIN:
1. ADAM PAYERL SON
2. The Avs are on a 6 game win streak so maybe they will lose a game now that they have won a lot of them in a row.
3. Sidney Crosby I mean Evgeni Malkin I mean Chris Kunitz I mean Olli Maatta I mean.....Craig Adams??? Yes, Craig Adams.
4. It would be a fun thing for the Penguins to win a professional hockey game by "scoring", at minimum, one additional "goal" in comparison to the team that they are playing, which in this game would be the Colorado "Avalanche" (not a literal Avalanche, but rather an assemblage of professional hockey "players").
5. Let us go Pittsburgh Penguins American sports enterprise and limited partnership business venture.
Sitting all the Olympians. Well all the ones they can sit. Not a big deal in a meaningless game. I'm sure they do have some bumps and bruises. Better they be fresh for the playoffs. That said, this game could get ugly. Hopefully they show up and play the system well....
Remind me to never buy tickets late in the season for pens games when we have a seed locked up like this...I get them sitting but man I would be furious if I bought tickets to this game and almost every star player is out.

I'm guessing they are going to rest the stars on the road. I'm sure they will get at least one more rest day. We'll see if they do this at home too, but yeah it would suck to pay to go to a game and not see the best players because the coach gave them a day off. Sounds like they took the night off yesterday too. I didn't see the game. I was watching the pirates lose.
