When you play the big games, you need your best players to step up and be the difference-makers. Looking at Philadelphia’s top five scorers and how they have performed in those 11 games against playoff teams since January ended, there are some very telling numbers.
Penguins center Mark Letestu will return to the lineup tonight against Philadelphia at Consol Energy Center, coach Dan Bylsma said after the team's morning skate.
Letestu, who missed the past five games because of what is believed was a shoulder injury, will resume his role centering wingers James Neal and Alex Kovalev.
Fellow center Dustin Jeffrey remains out because of a right knee injury. Bylsma said Jeffrey had an MRI Monday that showed damage in the knee but that Jeffrey will be further evaluated before any course of medical laction will be taken.
Have you watched the Pens? Their offense stinks.
If they are down 2, they will stop trapping and be exposed as the offensively inept team that they are.
Not even if they were the only team left in the league. Pens beat the Flyers last week doing exactly what you said, I do not expect them to put too much pressure, but with this team operating how they have the objective should be to dump it over the defense, not try and skate it through the defense and win teh one on one battles.
