Will the Leafs underestimate the Pens on Thurs...

I certainly dont expect the Pens to beat the Leafs Thursday but i do think it will be a tougher game than most Leafs fans expect, and if the Leafs think they can sit back and relax they could be in for a surprise, the Pens are officially hot, ending Dallas's win streak with a 4-0 shutout and going 5-2-1 in there last 8 and have a 3 game win streak...

Having said that I still think the Pens will lose, unless the Leafs underestimate a bottom dwelling team who "rollsover" for its competition

The Leafs have yet to be caught off guard by the Pens this year. They play hard, they can match the Penguins' intensity and their talent is 10 times that of Pittsburgh.

Toronto has dominated the Pens so far this season. And with a guy like Leetch, they can exploit their weak defense even further.

I'm expecting a return to earth for Pittsburgh.

I don't think the Leafs will be caught unaware. Not after what the Pens did to Dallas. The Leafs will be ready I think...

...but I hope they get the crap kicked out of them anyway for the embarassment value.

Haha agreed...that's why I like a team like the Penguins in the league. If you lose to them that's a serious wakeup call that your team is playing like s***

No, the Stars ran into a hot goalie, it happens. Aubin sucks too much to play another game like that.

I'd suggest you start chanting 1867 if your looking for a date which no one here was alive to remember, that way your assured of being correct.
