Love joy wasn't hurt on the play, so I'm not sure we'll see much in the way of retaliation.
Gotta bury their chances tonight. Any loss is bad enough, but a loss at the hands of these SOB's is even worse. Get 2 points in regulation!
this...i don't see the point of a retaliation when 1. lovejoy didn't get injured on the play and 2. the offending player was punished with a penalties and a suspension. also, the pens know the isles hurt them on the powerplay last game and they have one of the hottest pp units in the league right now.
really doesn't make sense for pitt.
Nabby in net and Collin McDonald in the lineup...could get pretty physical with McDonald in lineup after what happened
I doubt it. I don't think the hit was that bad and Colin McDonald's not really that kind of player.
I just hope the Isles play well. The Pens, if their two boys come out and play the way they can (or anywhere close) will run over the Islanders.
Isles need to stay out of the box, that PK number is not going to last all year! If they can limit turnovers they can take advantage of a Pens team that simply isn't that deep. But they are playing well.
I think they'll have Kunitz and Dupuis back with Sid and Geno with Boychuk and Neal. Let's not wake those two giants. No fights tonight, keep emotions "LOW"
Big game tonight to continue to establish an identity. Consistancy is what this team has lacked the past few years. If they can keep up the same style of play they have had the past 4 or 5 games I think it is a good sign.
I see a good game with the isles prevailing. I think Flurey being between the pipes helps the Isles.
