I just hope that Kostitsyn-Plekanec-Kovalev can play like in 2007-2008, and that Higgins-Koivu-D'Agostini can play like Higgins-Koivu-Ryder of 2005-2006. The loss of Lang hurts a lot, but it won't be so bad if we have two top lines that play like two top lines. Lang became very necessary because Plekanec has been largely invisible this season; hopefully he steps up.
Its a must win.. Pittsburg are blowing in our back for a playoffs spot, they just lost to the Leafs, they will be hungry.. If we win this one, I feel much more confortable for the rest of the season, if we lose, we are in trouble and we may have to fight to the end for a playoffs spot..
