Henrik Sedin the goon will throw a huge hit on Sidney Crosby which will take Crosby out for the whole year. Daniel Sedin will do the same to Malkin. Garrison will shave Letang's head. Luongo will score a hat trick on Fleury.
Hope Luongo starts. A bit worried about the early game, but Luongo's been coddled enough in the past. Time to man up and play your game, regardless of the start time, or days off, or what happened last game, etc.
Mental and physical toughness. Show us you've got it, Lu!
I think the Canucks will play well as they seem to always play well against Pittsburgh in the last few years. Hopefully no Canucks injuries as the last two games i remember was Luongo and Mitchell going out. I think there is a good chance Pittsburgh does not get up for this game, while Vancouver is very forcused.
Edler coming back is a good thing so our 6 d are all good. I think the third pair of Stanton/Tanev is as good defensively as the other pairs. Chicago managed to help our team this year. I do not know when i have been as happy with our defense except for the start of the cup run playoffs.
Maybe the team thinks Santorelli is better defensively at the moment than Kesler, if so they might as well keep the lines the same. As Kesler is an elite winger but has not looked elite at center in a while. Still early to judge Santorelli but might as well see what we have early. It seems like madness that he could be a second line center but he has played like a top six player this year. Kesler's production recently has been largely on the PP and he has not been shutting anyoneelse down so maybe Torts is right. Though still happy he is giving it to Santo and not Schoeder or Hodgson
