We had better see Despres in again. If Beauner can play a lot of games the way he did last night, Malkin's line will compete with Crosby's for the best on the team.

Somehow Stamkos keeps putting up points like a madman, Crosby needs to start putting him away - a 3-4 game here would open up a nice gap. Tampa will be eliminated from the playoffs pretty early so they will make it their goal to get Stammer the Rocket and Art Ross once that happens.

Please be okay Malkin, we need you.

Less concerned about "best line on the team" than opposing coaches thinking "how in the hell are we supposed to match up against this?" Islanders usually play us tough; hopefully we're all game face tonight and not a let down.

To all Europeans: Game starts one our earlier than usual due to daylight saving in the USA.

Thanks! Good thing too, nice to be able to enjoy such an early puck drop (1 A.M.) before a work day.

Yeah really. I'm glad there's no Pacific Coast game this year because I wouldn't even make it through the first period. SO OLD.

I didn't go to bed until 3 am last night.

Time someone scored a hat-trick for us. Crosby 5 point night please.

I might be able to do it on the weekend. I wake up at 5AM every weekday though so I just plain couldn't watch games.

I want to see Vitale in for Jeffrey or Adams, please.

I'm really looking forward to it. My family is Isles crazy, so this is always a fun game.

Most of the the time I have two off days a week and sunday. So if I'm lucky I'm able to watch all the games in a week and sometimes I'm not so lucky. But I have an off day tomorrow, so LGP.

Bylsma isn't addressing the media until 4:30. So, don't expect word on Malkin from the Penguins until then,
Well, guess we have to wait.

You just have to prioritise your time. Living in Sweden and Malta games usally starts at 1 AM. I work shift which means that I start work one of these times. 7.45 AM, 10 AM, 12.30 PM, 3 PM, 5 PM or 10 PM.

Starting at a PM shift makes it easy to watch the games even though I might miss 5 min while taking a cab home from work when I start 5PM.

For the 7.45 shift I flip my day around and make sure to wake up when the game starts. After that I do whatever normal people do during the day and then go to work.

10 AM shifts are the worst. I'm not off until 8PM, which only gives me a 4 hour sleep before the game. So I watch the game and try to fall a sleep after again.

I'll call it now: If we give them a lot of PP opportunities, the Isles take this game. If it remains a 5 on 5 contest for much of the night, Pens pull out the win. They're not very good at 5 on 5, but they're pretty deadly on the PP. If you look at the majority of their wins this season, it's largely due to their PP and the opposition giving them 5+ PP opportunities.

Can we please show the ability to shut down the opposing team's star player. Every game, the other teams top player has at least a 2 points against us. I'm calling Tavares with a 3 pt night.

You mean like last time when we gave them 7 PP and they went 0 for 7?
