There were a few matchups I had in mind, but the most important one going on you'd have to think is the battle between the pipes; Fleury, who's been great for us, against inevitable-as-the-sun-rising HOFer Marty Brodeur. Brodeur has rounded in to his usual stellar self under Lemaire's defensive system so you just know goals are going to be hard to come by. This game will likely be a low-scoring one with chances few and far between... making key saves when those chances do come around will be crucial in order to get the win.

Need to keep getting 2 point each time out to have a shot at catching the Flyers, but the Devils always seem to give the Pens trouble. It's almost a must to get the first goal (or 2 or 3) so the Devils can't trap you into oblivion.
MY dad won two tickets tonight for the game tonight.... except we both work. Now my fiancee is taking my baby brother to the game....
I hope your brother isn't old enough to put the moves on your woman... make sure they get home early.
I say that only because I've seen 30-something guys refer to 20-something guys as their "baby brother / little brother / kid brother" (usually derogatory).
Kidding... But seriously if he's old enough I'd have him followed. Nah I'm sure it's nothing to worry about. Seriously, do you have any friends going to the game?
Well I was excited when I saw the game was going to be MSG...then checking the guide the damn Knicks are on instead (who cares about basketball). MSG+ has the Sabres/Panthers game (who cares about them too). Such crap. I hate living here.
