Well, these are the starting lines for tonight, let's assume they stick...

12 Simon Gagne -- 28 Claude Giroux -- 22 Mike Knuble
19 Scott Hartnell -- 17 Jeff Carter -- 48 Danny Briere
13 Daniel Carcillo -- 18 Mike Richards -- 15 Joffrey Lupul
32 Riley Cote -- 36 Darroll Powe -- 45 Arron Asham

When we play the Pens, I don't think I like these lines and their matchups.

Richards is, IMO best to match Crosby...but with Lupul and Carcillo...heh. I don't know.

Briere on the ice against Malkin kinda worries me, especially the way he's been skating.

Giroux, the kid has been awesome...but those are two matchups I'd rather not see at this stage in the season.

We shall see!
