    ECFGDT#3: Pens @ Sens, May 17, 8:00 pm

    Post by wprager on Wed May 17, 2017 6:43 am

    Best of five, home ice advantage.  Whouldathunkit back in October.  The Send were 2-0 at home against the Pens in the regular season,  including a game against a healthy back-end. Now Letang is gone,  Daley still skating gingerly by himself and Schultz was hurt in the last game. Fans would rather see them dress 5D than putting in Streit or Corrado.

    Up front Rust was destroyed by Phaneuf,  Kessel and Malkin don't like each other and Sid may still be playing hurt.  Just 2 goals in 2 home games is definitely not Penguins hockey.

    Expect some changes in both lineups. Stalberg should be ready,  so Wingels or Dzingle will likely sit.  Boro is getting close,  too. For the Pens,  I would not be surprised if Daley drew in,  even though he's far from 100%.  Both Rust and Schultz are listed d2d and traveled with the team to Ottawa,  but I don't expect either one to play tonight. If Daley comes in they could go with 7D,  with Streit in as a PP specialist.

    Andy in #BeastMode gives us an excellent chance to reclaim the series lead.

    Go Sens Go!

    I wouldn't count on Fleury letting in any softies. It hasn't happened to this point, and it doesn't look like it's going to. If the Sens can crowd his crease a bit, that would help tremendously. He's not a very physical goalie, so a bit of bumping could go a long way.

    Getting a few PPs would be nice too, and for that to happen we need to get a bit more o-zone time.

    Should be a dandy tonight...The Sens have been great in these "swing" games.

    The Sens need to stick to their system but, as PTFlea mentioned, they need to be aggressive on that D. Don't let them move the puck out of their end so easily. Hound them. The Sens don't need to change a lot and with home ice they can adjust the match-ups much more easily.

    Schultz, Hornqvist and Rust still out; Daley likely to draw in. Still think they should go with 7D.

    Stalberg came of the ice with the regulars while Dzingle stayed on with the Black Aces after practice. So, pretty sure that means Stalberg in for Dzingle.

    I like Stalberg over Dzingle, so that's fine. The first goal tonight is pretty important...let's get it.

    Stalberg in for Wingels.

    Pens going with 7D as Daley and Streit draw in.

    That was one hell of a showing! That should convince the players that we can take care of these penguins. Even though it was Fleury Dung the bed

    Even Wil Wheaton was impressed:

    Apparently he can't stand Crosby.

    Yeah, WTF?? I don't really think the goals on Fleury were soft, other than the wrap-around maybe. The first one, Fleury was on his post, the puck just hit the bottom of his pad and deflected in. The second one took a couple ridiculous bounces too.

    Anyway...that was awesome! I think the Penguins will go back to Fleury for the next game.

    I also loved Stone going after whoever towards the end...just a fantastic game. The Penguins don't have the toughness to goon it up when a game's out of hand. Hopefully we have them a bit rattled and can pounce early again in game 4.

    First one Fleury could have had his pad hugging the post and not his skate and that wouldn't have had the space to go in, granted there wasn't much space to work with and it was a little fluky, second goal Fleury completely lost the puck and knocked it in with his own leg as a result of that. The D man should have been shouting it's in your pads, don't Cussing move or something though, the wraparound was hella awful.
