No matter Pens cannot match up at all with Flyers in rough part,,Flyers were smart they use this game to really bang up their stars,
uhhh, why would you match up our skill players vs they agitators?

If you really matched it up it would be like

Crosby > Giroux
Neal < Hartnell
Malkin > Briere
Cooke > Talbot
Engelland > Coburn
MacIntyre > Shelley

I could be like

Engelland would kill Bryzgalov
MacIntyre would kill Briere
Asham would kill Giroux
like picking bad match ups doesn't mean the team doesn't match up...

Rinaldo vs. Kennedy: both small and very emotional players. Kennedy has been known to drop the gloves in intense games like these, and Rinaldo seems like a good matchup.

Other than those 2 I'm not sure if we'll see anything more than roughing after whistles. I don't see Engelland dropping the gloves since with the injury to Niskanen we need our top 6 to stay out of the scrums. I also don't see Asham doing anything more than light roughing since he won't play enough to find a partner willing to throw down with.

One that probably won't happen but would be nice so that everyone would shutup would be Vitale vs. Schenn

That way Pens fans can feel good for Vitale sticking up for Crosby, and Flyers fans can feel good for Schenn sticking up for Briere (even though it was a clean hit :s)
If rinaldo wants to fight someone he's gonna fight Asham, they were about to go last game.
