EDIT: You'll know if Cole's plane was late if you check the news late tonight for any 'incidents' on planes today.

Their second line has been on fire in the last half of the season. Their third line has been serviceable with castoffs Aucoin and McDonald teamed up with uber-fast Grabner. Grabner needs to be kept in check in this series. He can change a game with his penchant for short-handed breakaways. And on their fourth line, their younger version of our lunch-pail gang (Cizikas and Martin) have been good all season. It sounds like Marty Reasoner will center them instead of enforcer Boulton or a young strapping winger like Joensuu or Lee.

I'm curious to see who matches up against the Malkin line for them. I assume it'll be the Nielsen line with Bailey and Okposo.

So, I expect the Malkin line vs. Nielsen line
Jokinen line vs. Aucoin line
Sutter line vs. Tavares line

The isles fans are right, that's exactly what the Isles need to do, We have seen Geno Letang Neal get off there game and take dumb penalties over and over again when teams play them physical.

I'm curious to see, because, you know, the Pens are at home, if BYLSMA actually dictates the matchup. Yes, I know, crazy concept. I'd put JJ's line against Neilsen, wear them down, put Sutter out on Tavares, and then just give them Geno's line as often as I can when their third our fourth lines are out there.

Only 3.5 hours to go... I've already taken a 2 hour walk to kill some time (and to keep myself away from the injury thread, which for some unknown reason I'm drawn to like a magnet).

This day can't go by fast enough.

P.s. thank you to those of you who mentioned liquor/drinking earlier in the thread. It prompted me to go to the LCBO and stock up.

Oh come on. Everyone knows that all you have to do is squeeze your eyes shut tight enough, concentrate really hard and WILL your jaw to instantly repair itself. Anyone who can't do that is just weak in both body and spirit.

I really hope the kid (Bennett) gets in for tonights game.
That 4th line has never looked better with him on it, especially the game in Tampa.

Curious to see how DB goes with it.

Expecting big games from Morrow and Neal.

And I love him, but something tells me Crankshaft gets embarrassed by Grabner at least once.

I'd rather him, than watching Despres trip over his skates trying to catch him.

I love Despres, but he definitely has some clumsy feet.

Someone clarify something for me... is this game 6:30 Eastern time or does the Pens web site know where I am and it's telling me it's 6:30 Central? And who gave the Pens web site permission to track my location anyway?

It's at 7:30 ET. You can't keep secrets from the Pens. Only they can keep them from you.

Pens site gives you the time based on your IP addresses location. So that you don't get mixed up about when to turn your TV on.

While I agree with the sentiment about staying out of the box, I'm not sure they have the edge in the PP department. Pens finished 2nd in the league with a 24.7% success rate, while the Isles finished 11th in the league with a 19.9% success rate. Granted, our PP can be extremely frustrating at times, but it's certainly capable of scorching teams when it's on.

I'm more interested in seeing the defense pairings, and what their assignments will be.

Paul Martin seems to do a great job whenever he's tasked with shutting down Tavares. It will probably be his pairing on the ice every time #91 is out there.
