Wow, wasn't expecting him to put Thilbault in. It's gonna be a very close game tonight. Thibault better play well.

I'd rather see Thibault used in a game that the Pens have a slim chance of winning rather than in a game that the Pens have a good chance of winning. I don't want Thibault blowing a game we could have won against TB, for example. 4-2 vs. 7-2 against the Ducks, on the other hand, doesn't matter much.
I actually agree with this line of thought. They were never going to win tonight anyway, so who cares if it's 8-1 instead of 4-1?
A goaltender that hasn't plaed a single game all season. A defenseman who hasnt played a single game all season, minus our top defenseman.
Pens win in OT 4-3. My prediction woulda been 4-3 in regulation but I've had a good feeling about this game.
Plus, they are playing a team that has not loss at home yet...
that streak has to end.
I have a good feeling about this game too!
More importantly, they're playing a team that hasnt lost in regulation, period.

I hope the same Thibault that was in camp shows up tonight so I can read all of the "what a fluke" posts later.

If the Pens are going to give MAF a break they have to do it on the road. it would not be a popular decision to bench him at home.

Especially for this Wednesday's game, since I've been looking forward to coming into town for that game for two months...

Fleury's local radio station has asked the NHL to do a Pens game for a long time and they finally let them do tonight's game. And Fleury's no even playing.
