IT'S A HOCKEY NIGHT IN PITTSBURGH!
Tonight, live from the Mellon Arena in downtown Pittsburgh, it's your Pittsburgh Penguins against the Philadelphia Flyers. Hello everyone, welcome to LetsGoPens.com, I'm your game thread manager EagleMorph. Tonight, the Penguins host the most reviled team in the NHL. The Philadelphia Flyers, fresh off a 3-1 win over the lowly New York Islanders, lead the Eastern Conference in total penalty minutes.
They will also be without Danny Briere and dealing with a hobbled Ossi Vanaanen and Riley Cote.
The Penguins, meanwhile, are coming off the Game!Of!The!Year! (thank you MidMajority)
. The 7-6 OT win over the defending champion Detroit Red Wings featured the stick-handling stylings of Jordan Staal, the bruising thumping of Brooks Orpik, and an understated performance by Marc-Andre Fleury.
Your goalies are Fleury and Biron, as expected. So while we eschew the purty announcement of those goaltenders, we remind you what happened the last time Eric Godard and Riley Cote tangled.http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/47675
The Pens won 3-2. Hooray.LET'S GO PENS! IT'S TIME FOR PHILLY TO GET...
