Good luck tonight, guys. I will definitely be watching. Two of my favorite players in the world going head to head: Malkin v. Ovechkin with a side of Semin v. Crosby and Green v. Goligoski? for Dessert.
Washington Capitals (16) at Pittsburgh Penguins (25) 7:30 PM ET - Preview
WAS: Donald Brashear (7), Matt Bradley (4), Chris Clark (2), John Erskine (1), Brooks Laich (1), Alexander Semin (1)
PIT: Eric Godard (13), Paul Bissonnette (3), Ruslan Fedotenko (injured) (2), Matt Cooke (1), Sidney Crosby (1), Hal Gill (1), Brooks Orpik (1), Jordan Staal (1), Maxime Talbot (1), Tim Wallace (AHL) (1)
I can't believe they called up helmer. He's so useless but I guess BB wants someone who won make any more mental errors. Just physical ones.
What do you really think ?! Helmer is ok in spurts (as long as the line that he matches up against isn't noted for speed.) He'll be ok, and like someone posted earlier his veteran presence might be useful in this one. Go Caps!
As fun as it was seeing Semin going oingo boingo, I don't see him faring well in future tilts. I hope the big boys step in for him tonight if need be. At least until he finishes up his bongo i mean boxing lessons.
