Lately I think that has been the key for us, having great starts and then playing good hockey from there.

It was awesome, you could just feel the electricity going through the building.
We knew they were pulling for us and were behind us, and you just feed off that.
- Michael Sauer


We’re gaining momentum and playing with great energy. But we are also still fighting for our (playoff) lives.

I feel a strong multiple goal aura emanating from Alex BEAST MODE Kovalev. His warrior stick shall smite us but NYR will prevail 5-4. Alex BEAST MODE...well, at least 2 points from the man. NUFF SAID.

I just don't get how Pit wins with that lineup right now.

Let's see what we can do, gonna be a big game. Buf won tonight, Car won last night. Need a win.

The main reason we win is our defense is amazing even with Orpik out, the team is gritty as hell and usually outworks the opposition (Torts and Bylsma basically have the same style- you rarely see the Rangers or Pens get outworked in a game) and Fleury has been incredible this year ever since that bad week he had at the start of the year.

Kris Letang with 2g 1a. And he whips his hair back and forth, which causes me to faint.



No excuse for a loss. Look at that lineup. But it's an early game on NBC, we'll lose.

Yeah that's what I have seen when I watch, but I just gotta give credit to Blysma because he lost his 2 best offensive players, and has a guy playing 1C that didn't start the year with the team.

Bylsma IMO should be coach of the year. They're in contention for the division missing Crosby/Malkin for 2~ months.

I'm on travel for work here in Pittsburgh. Got a ticket to the game tomorrow! Hoping for a win.

We really need 2 points here. With the injuries the Pens have, there is no excuse for a loss. I don't care who we have in net.

4 wins in a row would be a season best. And after the game against Montreal we might be due for a let down tomorrow afternoon. Hopefully that's not the case.

Just win baby.

Gonna be missing the game unfortunately due to it starting at 12:30.

If we can win tomorrow i like our chances of making the playoffs down the stretch here. A win tomorrow puts us at 82 points. We have the panthers, isles, sens, and thrashers ahead on the schedule. That could potentially be 8 points right there putting us at 90. Obviously nothing is a sure thing but a win over the penguins tomorrow puts us in good position to make the playoffs.

They're 0 for 4 attempts trying to extend 3 game winning streaks. This is a good time to put that streak to rest. LGR!
