Got to go with the Pens. Sadly, every March I get to root against the Rangers instead of rooting for the Isles

Is this game on live tonight? I see the Rangers on MSG 1 and 2 while the Devils are also on.

I hope Center Ice has an Isles feed, the Pens announcers are one step below Jack Edwards in terms of homerism.

Really looking forward to watching this game. The Pens are the class of the league and will be tough to beat 4 out of 7 in the playoffs for any team.

The GDTs have been the highlight of the season for the third straight year.

Same here, the Pens are amazing to watch. They should win the cup this year. With Letang and Crosby in the lineup they are just scary out there.

I'd like to see Snow build a team of well-rounded, competitive players like the Pens have. We'll see MUCH MORE wins and much fewer 3rd period collapses.

Even worse than Edwards if you ask me. The Canadian CI feed tonight and Thursday will be Pens HD on the plus side, but unless Haley and Gillies are emergency recalls for fight night 2, I don't like our chances.

Great GDT Law as always!

In my opinion, Letang might be the most important player on that team. And that is saying something with Malkin having an MVP season and Crosby being Crosby

The Islanders will win one of these two games against the Pens. I think the Islanders will finish fairly strong, insuring they miss out on a top 5 pick in the draft.

I'm not so sure about us winning against the Pens. They are still playing for home ice advantage throughout the playoffs trying to catch the Rags.

Not saying we are not capable of beating them but the way they are playing offensively I don't see how we can slow them down.

I mean... Crosby's on the third line for God's sake.

I can see Letang winning a Norris Trophy or two over the next few seasons, if he stays healthy, on that Pens team. He's incredibly impressive out there. He carries the puck well, he hits, plays great defensively, great offensively, eats up big mnutes - flawless player and already a great defenseman, still a baby in relative terms...what a gem of a player.

Crosby is so incredible, far and away the best player in the NHL. Even playing limited minutes, with "scrubs", and still tentative out there, he's so skilled and able to generate offense. He embarrassed Zidlicky twice the other night and he's hardly even played this year. This guy can have a HOF career even if he plays on the perimeter and avoids contact the rest of his hockey career.

I like when the Isles-Pens play because it's a good test for some of the Isles core young players. You'll see Tavares play even more intensely and hopefully Okposo, Bailey, Nielsen, Moulson, Grabner, Parenteau, AMac, Streit play this game with some intensity and tenacity....even though they have nothing to play for at this stage.

He missed a full year with a concussion, he's not on the 3rd line because he's playing bad or because other players are better than him. It has to do with his minutes. Got to get in game shape before the playoffs, mentally and physically. He's able to produce magic with anyone you pair him with. He would make a line of Konopka and Gillies look good.
