I don't know if Hank gets THAT much rest. Maybe he gets the last game off against the Caps. I was watching behind the bench and Torts commented that he doesn't believe in resting players unless they need it for health purposes. He used Callahan taking games off earlier this month to get over his ankle/foot injury.
When Crosby was gone, I was getting along with Pens fans, and 'scraping' with Bruins and Flyers fans.
With Crosby back, Pens fans are worse than ever, and I'm generally having fun with Flyers and Bruins fans.
Eh. I disagree. It's one regular season game, which is never really a very good barometer for anything.
You are right, it is only one game, but from a mental standpoint and pressure wise, it is a chance to clinch the Eastern Conference. Whether they admit it or not it will be in their heads. So I think how they come out speaks a lot to their mental makeup under even a small amount of pressure.
