It's obvious the Pens are a very good team. The Isles can give themselves a good chance if they work hard from the first minute to the last and play one shift at a time.

Not sure of the TV - looks like its only on NBCSN.

Go Isles!!

Obviously a tough matchup with a Crosby playing and our D/Nabby hurting, but we've been getting it done so let's get it done!

LGI!

Sad to rely on it every time but 3 goals from the top line would be nice.

Or the secondary scoring could help out. Bailey hasn't scored since the Pens game in Oct, maybe he breaks it in Jan?

its a very funny feeling that we all know we will probably need 3 goals from our top line, but there is also around a 50 percent chance we will get it

Hopefully not head-to-head.
Jack has last change. Frans is the defensive center when Sid is out. Don't know how we play Malkin, maybe Casey or Nelson?
Scares the bejesus out of me seeing Regin as our LW2.

This might be one of the most interesting games to watch this season.
Pens have some classy players who have to be neutralized by defense or goals, or both. We need a Poulin of the highest order, a fresh skaters brigade and 150% attacking power. 5-2 Isles

Remember, let's not all get upset when it's 2-0 Pittsburgh at 7:23 of the 1st period. We'll be A-OK!

I don't even bother turning the game on until we're down by at least 2

We should ask for a trade to let the Pens start the game with a 2-0 lead in exchange for two Powerplays.

Is this Calvin de Haans coming out to the nation game?

Excited to see how the kid does against two of the worlds best in Crosby and Malkin.


By the way. If there is anyone happy about Hammer not playing its Malkin.

Hammer always gives him fits and battles hard against him.

Honestly, I think I'd match Nelson against Crosby and Nielsen against Malkin. Gino doesn't use his size as well as Crosby does and Nelson is stronger.

Uh-oh, Pens are starting backup Jeff Zatkoff. Another borderline AHL player the Isles can make look like a star.
