QUOTE TO NOTE:

I thought we stayed with it, stayed aggressive on the forecheck...
It was that way the entire game, a full 60 minutes, because I liked our first period too.

Just looked over Andrew Gross' twitter. DZ will play.

With Michael Del Zotto able to play tomorrow night, the #NYRangers send Corey Potter back to Hartford (AHL).

And Gabs didn't skate today according to Zipay.

ohbaby 03-03-2010 06:26 PM

With Drury and Cally on the top 2 lines, I feel we can contain Sid and Geno. The key will be to stopping Jordan's line,.. they have been playing very well together. Matt Cooke especially.

LGR!

Fitzy 03-03-2010 06:29 PM

Pittsburgh is one of those teams you dont attack, you defend. Id like Staal-Girardi and Redden-Rozsival against the Crosby and Malkin lines, but Tortorella refuses to play MDZ and Gilroy together.

Florida Ranger 03-03-2010 06:30 PM

Let's go Rangers! Let's make it four in a row, boys!

Fitzy 03-03-2010 06:33 PM

I think it is too, but 63 games into the season, theyre both big boys, I think they can handle duties against 3rd and 4th lines.

It's probably because he's cautious about throwing two rookie defensemen out together. haha I wouldn't do it either if I was playing the Pens... No way.

imho our 2 best defenseman are Rozsival and Staal...are you trying to get each on a different pairing to play against those 2 big guns?

Inferno 03-03-2010 06:36 PM

you dont have Ponikarovsky in their lineup...im sure he will be there.

Thats the idea. Plus Girardi and Redden I think are better complementary "shutdown" players than Gilroy and MDZ.

Redden may be overpaid and disabled offensively but at least he is 2nd pairing level in his own zone.

No he won't.

Winger Alex Ponikarovsky, obtained by the Penguins late Tuesday night in a trade with Toronto, will not be able to join his new team until at least Friday because of an immigration holdup.

I truly hope the Garden crowd gives Crosby the welcoming he deserves.

Or Marc Staal for that matter.

Staal was a beast on Crosby last season, but he hasen't played him that physical so far this year.

OrbitalDynamics 03-03-2010 07:12 PM

Well, at least it isn't on VS or we'd be forced to endure Doc and Beninatti moistening up every time Cyndi was on camera.

SupersonicMonkey* 03-03-2010 07:43 PM

Just win.

That's if he stays in front of the net and let's his teammates do the other work. As long as he doesn't have to skate he'll be fine. ;)

Just joking... Kinda true, though. haha

Forget this question. Watching the Caps - Sabres game, looks like they're just gonna pick up either our feed or Pitt's feed and broadcast that.
