Looking into my crystal ball I see:
Habs 3 Penguins 1
Goals coming from Bulis (7 shots) Hossa (5 shots) who are due, Ward gets an empty netter, minutes after Koltsov ruins shutout for Theo. Juneau and Dackell pick up assists and +1 from Bulis goal. Begin takes Mario to the box with roughing penalties, propably after slightly late hit on Straka.
If Juneau line can do the same to Mario they did to Jagr & Co I dont see Pens making too much trouble. Once again their team is revolving around Lemieux - and to a lesser degree Straka and Morozov. Penguins are team on the road coming off from frustrating tie. Another team with poor D, even with Orpik back I have difficulty figuring who's their best defender.
I wouldnt be surpriced to see a game like that we saw vs. Caps - Habs limiting them to less than 20 shots. The thing preventing goal total becoming ugly is they got young Quebec goaltender in the nets. Those seem to play their best games @Montreal, but three seems to be their magic number this season.
