    ECFGDT#2: Sens @ Pens, May 15, 8:00 pm

    Post by wprager on Mon May 15, 2017 6:52 am

    Having already accomplished the split and won home ice, the Sens will attempt to go one step further and do the unthinkable. While some jokingly predicted Pens in 3, we know there will be a game 5 back here in Pittsburgh ... or do we?

    No lineup changes expected for Ottawa. Don't think we'll see Murray for Pittsburgh, as Fleury was pretty good. Wouldn't be surprised, though, to see some changes elsewhere.

    I think Matrix has fully entered #Beastmode now, so here's hoping that continues. Sounds like Stalberg might be ready to step back in, so that would mean Wingels or Dzingel comes out.

    If Andy is in beast mode then they could very well go up 2-0. If that happens, they would be do well to remember that the Oilers were up 2-0 coming home.

    Was it Maata that Ryan blew by in OT? Wonder of we might see a change on the back end. If not, more of our forwards should try to go wide.

    Looking at the Penguins defensive depth (if you can call it that) it's a bit of a mess. Daley is likely still out tonight,  although he is getting close. That means a top pairing of Cole-Schultz?  How did we only score one in 60 minutes?  Oh,  yeah,  penalties.

    Streit could come in to replace Maata,  I suppose,  but is he any faster pushing 40?  Besides,  Dumoulin appears to be playing hurt so maybe Streit would replace him,  instead.

    I don't think the Penguins are in a position to pull out any of the current d-men. There's just no depth there when they already have Letang and Daley on the shelf. Maata was the guy Ryan blew by (somehow), but he's actually one of their better defenders, so there's no way they'll sit him.

    I'm not a fan of Maata. I think he's soft. He also gets injured daily.

    I hope they keep Dzingel in just for the foot speed and offensive potential. Wingels hasn't been bad per sa just not noticeable.

    Thought we'd win on Saturday and then lose tonight, but now not so sure. I won't be disappointed if we do.

    Hornqvist and Hagelin may miss game 2.

    If that's the case that's really starting to test their depth. People may have questioned my thoughts on preferring the Pens this round but, maybe it wasn't such a far fetched idea after all?

    Crosby is definitely not 100%, The two above, if they play, sounds like they're pretty banged up, missing their top 2 D and the Pens have played a tonne of hockey with having a short summer last season and having had a tough grinding series vs. the Caps.

    Sens can go up 2-0 if they stick to their game. Anderson will have to be good, but the neutral zone trap has been effective so far. Go Sens.
