PPG PAINTS ARENA – PITTSBURGH, PA
7:30 PM EST. NBCSN
Pens lost in Columbus 6 minutes ago, but that’s burying the lede. What a show from Matt Murray last night.
There’s like 4 more of those on Jeff’s twitter. I am sorry you have to wade through the cesspool that is his account to find them, but the GIFs are good, and the saves are better. Tough to waste that kind of effort from your goalie when you’re in a playoff race.
The Pens ended up splitting the home & home with CBJ which is whatever. The Bruins come to town tonight after beating the Sens 3-2 in Boston last night. Rask only had to face 19 SOG to get that one done. The Sens are smoldering ass.
Here’s where we stand going into tonight.
Caps hosting ‘peg the only game worth keeping an eye on tonight.
Doubt the Pens make any changes for tonight. Letang and Olli lurking. Pens want to avoid 0fer the weekend, gotta go big Murr again tonight.
Guentzel – Crosby – Simon
ZAR – Malkin – Kessel
McCann – Bjugstad – Hornqvist
Blueger – Cullen – Wilson
Dumoulin – Trotman
Johnson – Schultz
Murray rolling into PPG tonight to start the 2nd of a back to back:
Bruins ran out this group last night. Probs Rask again because it’s his birthday and he faced like 4 shots yesterday.
Big two points on the line tonight. Hold the line.
