Nice GDT Shrimp.

I think tonight's matchup will end up being a goaltender's battle. Price or MAF who will crack first???

Final score will be 3-1 Pens I say. Let's go Pens!!!!

Hopefully we play better after Sid & Orpik speaking out to the press. Not going to help some of the systemic problems but might get a decent effort.

Also, I didn't pick out that cake vodka, my wife wanted to try it. Unfortunately, it tastes exactly like pineapple upside-down cake when mixed with pineapple juice, which is pretty dangerous.

The Pens better start winning because she's starting to get pissed that I'm drinking all her foo-foo liquor.

I always like games in Montreal.

Great atmosphere.

A win would be great for us, Montreal has a good team though.

He's always reminded me of Troy Crosby.

I always hope that I'm wrong but I expect the Pens to do a lot of chasing tonight.

I'm really liking Bennetts game. Sure there are some rookie mistakes but he's involved in plays, keeps active and is smart away from the puck.

Maybe its just a matter of time but Sid and Neal have looked really, REALLY bad so far. It almost seems like Neal is spending a lot of time chasing pucks and not setting up. IMO he needs to get to the middle of the ice more and let Sid do the board and wing work. Sid's always coming down that RW anyway.

Bourque has a concussion and was replaced by Prust. Diaz also has a concussion and will be replaced by Kaberle.

Really interesting game tonight. I'm still not believing what the Habs are doing but I guess I should start.

just keep it low scoring and prove that you can actually play defense.

Therrien Deploys his lines a little differently. Prust-Pleks-Gio get more ice-time, but usually because they match up against top line scoring lines and get defensive zone starts. They're are 1st line in terms of ice-time, but our 2nd and 3rd lines are the scoring lines.

I had no clue francis bouillon still played. I remember wanting to sign him like 4 years ago on a cheap deal.

I lost track of him in Nashville. Does he still play the same way at 37?

Bouillon has been surprisingly efficient for his price tag. He is really a 3rd pairing d-man, and he does get a little too much ice time, but so far so good.
