Gameday 29: Penguins @ Devils


Penguins (18-10-1) vs. Devils (9-13-4)

Prudential Center | Newark, NJ

Thursday, March 18 | 7:00PM Eastern


Team with just one pro center,

Losing stud after stud,

After stud, the Pens give in

It’s so dumb, we’re surprised Jankowski sucks

Scared paired, backskating defensemen,

They’re wounded too, we say

In their respective ways

UPMC couldn’t fix Gene,

Blueger’s tired of carrying the play

But who would want to lose to Shero and these duds?

When the time has come to play the taxi squad.

Stretch the truth like a deluded linesman,

Calling five for a minor,

A minor, oh, where’s the line?

You burn rulebooks, you’re breaking our Tanev.

UPMC, can’t make Lafferty

Get tired of playing with his ass instead of his head.

But who would wanna lose to Lindy fucking Rupp?

When the time has come to play McCann at C.

Let’s take this squad for one last tilt, I know

It’s not the end, but it can’t be that far…


Guentzel – Crosby – Rust

Tanev – Rodrigues – Kapanen

Aston-Reese – Jankowski – Lafferty

Angello – Gaudreau – Sceviour


Dumoulin – Letang

Matheson – Ceci

Pettersson – Ruhwedel

The Devils come into the game with 22 points in 26 contests, sitting above only Buffalo in the MassMutual East Division.

Their 65 goals for are second-worst in the lead to the aforementioned Sabres, and their leading scorer, Pavel Zacha, has posted just 17 points. For reference, the Penguins have 6 players who have posted 20 or more.

Their power play is one of the few worse than the Penguins, as well, converting on just 13.3% of man advantage situations. Let’s not stop there, because it sure as shit gets worse, as the Devils also have the third-worst penalty kill, staving off just 71.3% of chances against.

The long and short here – the Devils suck. Even a depleted Penguins team should take care of business.


Kuokkanen – Zajac – Sharangovich

Bratt – Zacha – Palmieri

Wood – Hughes – Bastian

Johnsson – Maltsev – Gusev


Smith – Severson
