Going for 11 here. I don't have any _quality_ music to share over it, but here's something quick to fit the theme.

Play physical, work hard, and stay out of the box. Do those things and the Pens win.

Take the Isles lightly, play a run and gun game, or take a bunch of penalties and the Isles will pull this one off.

Bennett on the 3rd line with no real skill? Well that's great!

I really don't understand the decision to move him to the 3rd line. Glad Sutter is on the 2nd, but...?

he's also playing RW, which is a pretty interesting development.

So what happened to Bylsma promising that Bennett would stay on the second line.

Yea. He's been playing fine. I don't really understand this development.

Edit:

I guess maybe Smith isn't comfortable playing the right side? So keeping Cooke on the left side moving him up, keeping Smith on the left side on the 3rd line, and putting Bennett on the right side where he's comfortable?

Seems like a dumb reason to kill the 2nd line.

Yeah, this is the first time I've seen a lineup shuffle due to a late withdrawal.

Obviously, they're down a right winger with Kennedy being sick. Making Bennett the only healthy guy on the roster who can play right wing at the minute.

Breathe.

Thanks! Never heard of him which is a poor reflection on me I guess.

Bennett might've played with Smith at WBS this season so might be putting him there for chemistry reasons.

I only know him because he was on the Penguins team on NHL13 during the lockout for some reason.

I think that our streak will end tonight sadly.

I was hoping we'd see the Isles vomit-inducing black jerseys tonight for trainwreck viewing purposes. Worst jerseys in pro sports.

Personally, I'm breathing, I just disagree with the shuffle. They've been a 1-line team since Malkin left and continue to make every change but he obvious one: putting Bennett - Sutter - Neal together full time until Geno is back. Smith - Jeffrey - Cooke would score as much as smith - Jeffrey - Bennett, but I believe Bennett - Sutter - Neal is a offensively better than with Cooke.

I wish they'd scratch Eaton for Bort one of these days. Guy needs to play.

You don't have to believe it, it's glaringly obvious.

Is it wrong to think that as Crosby tends to do pretty well against the Islanders to expect a 2/3 point game?

I'd like to see him get a goal or two though as well.
