B-but Nhl.com says this will be the pens toughest test! They're so physically tough and intimidating!

Need to jump on them early.

OT game last night up in Ottawa. Got in late last night. First 10 mins of this game will be key.

We've never been softer before.

Exactly! The Pens will be bullied all night. Wish Shero would bring back some grit.

Yeah for being two teams that are constantly called dirty, they've played some straight forward games the last couple of years with the Pens doing well against the Bruins.

Heading out to the game. Should be a good one. Hopefully the Pens can overcome no Geno.

Let's go Pens!

Some of the Cookie jokes made me chuckle. After a Mod warned them about wishing injury on opposing players, a guy piped up, "Can we wish he hits all red lights on the way to the game?"

I do think this will be the Pens toughest test so far this season, but I feel pretty confident. Typically we play pretty well against them.

In fact, Fleury has a higher save percentage against the Bruins than any other eastern team. His stats through 17 GP: 9-5-2 .930 2.20

If I had to put money on the game, I'd bet against the Pens. But I want more than anything to be proved wrong tonight.
That's what Kennedy is for!

Engelland scratched again tonight, in favor of the fossil Eaton? Against the biggest, toughest team in the league? lol. He'll surely clear Lucic from the crease. Sorry guys, but for the first time since 1989 I'll be rooting against the Pens. This insanity of dressing a lineup of small wimps has got to stop. Here's hoping the Bruins beat us by about 7 goals

Anywho. Here's hoping for a great injury-free (from our POV) game!


Oh rly.

Boston is the 21st tallest team and 26th heaviest team in the league. Where do people keep getting this "biggest, toughest team in the league" stuff?

Because they say it all the time so it must be true. If they get to 100 posts then Crosby gets automatically concussed.

Well whether they're statistically the 'biggest' in the league or not, they're definitely the toughest and most physical. How does that compare to us? Do we need to be as tough and physical as they are? No. Should we be tougher and more physical than Mark Eaton? I guess we'll find out.
