Pens fan here. Good luck tonight. Hopefully no injuries for either side.

Just want to chime in on a few things...

Neal has been in a slight goal scoring slump lately. He's been picking up some assists though because Malkin is in beast mode like usual. We are mostly a 1 line team. Staal has been on fire lately though. Gotta watch out for him.

It's interesting to get an opposing teams view. I can't say I agree with the assessment of Fleury. I actually think the opposite. I think Fleury is underrated and our defense is overrated. People just look at the names and think the Pens D is great, but Martin, Michalek and Orpik have had down seasons and while Letang is a stud, he was also hurt for a good while. Niskanen and Engelland have probably been our 2 most consistent D-Men. Fleury has probably made our D look better than it's really been this season and not the other way around.

As far as Kari vs. Fleury. I can see the argument for Kari. I saw him a bunch in the east during his days in Atlanta. He had size and serious talent, but couldn't stay healthy. Looks like he's had better luck with the injuries since coming to Dallas.

Getting pumped for this game now, huge 2 points on the line.....Get 'Em Stars!

Glad to see Been back, hopefully he can come right back and turn on the BEASTMODE that we saw last season when he came back from injury.

Apart from a few bad periods in the past handful games the Stars have really stepped up their game. It looks too good at the moment, also with Benn coming back to the lineup, let's just hope tonight's not the time for an upset. Work hard and get the two points. Go Stars!

Yeah, especially as he's started to take care of his body and to understand he needed to change his nutrition/lifestyle/workout in order to be a professional athlete.

Never seen your defense play consistently, and all I saw for a good amount of games was in the SCFs. And your defense was a lot better back then, so I'm probably wrong there. But they're both great goalies.

Oh no, Mike Emrick is behind the mic in this one. Let's start a drinking game: 5 shots everytime he says something like 'the puck ricochets off'...

Don't even know who it was, they were saying Benn's penalty was a lazy play because he wasn't skating.

Do they even know he just came back from a leg injury?

It was a lazy play. If he can't skate he shouldn't be playing.

I don't see how that's a penalty. Seemed like a good hit by Nystrom.

What a joke. Roughing because a player puts himself in a position like that? ***** call.

If Letang didn't crouch like that it's not a penalty, it's not Nystroms fault what so ever.
