I have no idea what to expect out of this game.

I have a feeling Geno comes out looking to make a statement and dominates early.

Or maybe that's more hope than feeling....

Well I’m not sure it’s possible for them to start any worse than they have, so here is to hoping we get through 2 full minutes without being down 1-0.

Take the lead and don’t take your foot off the pedal.

I want them to use the electric energy of PPG to come out and play the 1st period like they play the third period. Then continue that play through the second period, then elevate their play in the third period to completely dominate the Craps. I want to see Caps players dead tired trying to keep up and some of them bleeding!

First 10 mins of your first game at home in a series is always huge.
Caps better weather the storm. Geno will be going on adrenaline before his knee probably swells up something fierce

I expect Pens to carry play those first 10 mins. If they look sloppy, then I'll start to be officially worried

If Malkin is playing hurt then I don't expect a lot from him. If healthy maybe we see crazy Malkin.

The Caps targeted Guentzel plenty in game 2 and I figure they go after Dumo again. Maybe they go after Malkin as well.

The guy I expect to come out on fire is Crosby because of the anger he displayed that last game.

Since the debacle, on Sunday I have kept repeating to myself...

'We have Crosby.'
'We have Sullivan.'
'And the Caps don't.'

Yes but Crosby and Sullivan are carrying a lot of dead weight with them right now.

I'm looking at you Phil Kessel, and you Brassard.

More Kessel...Brassard has done everything except score. Kessel needs to pick it up a couple hundred notches.

It looks to me that kessel is either injured or he's covering for Malkin.

He's been playing the team leader on PP, looking for assists instead of goals.

But the pens need more goals from his sniper rifle.

Kessel is pretty badly injured boys. Brassard has been fine but he needs to find that extra gear and put the puck in the net.

Rowney needs fired into the sun. I'd rather play Dea or Blueger than him. Kuhnhackl is already our designated Ovi meat shield. We don't need another.

For anyone interested, my cousin is now covering the series for The Athletic. He has covered the Caps in prior years as a beat guy, but is from Pittsburgh and knows the Pens well. I don't subscribe but he's a very good hockey writer and a confirmed Steelers fan lol

Is this still the injury he suffered against Montreal, do you think?

That is what I'm thinking.
Phil is so proud of his ironman streak and he should be but for the betterment of the team he should have sat down if this was the case. I know the Pens were chasing points but a week off might have made a difference.

And my spiel about Crosby and Sullivan was more for my benefit.

Ugh....Doc Emerick.

Did anyone see what they just showed? In two games we’ve been beat by Wilson with an outlet pass to an odd man rush. Ovie has two, Kuznetsov has one.

And that dickbag is going to play tonight.

Let's go Pens!

I wonder if they'll let us count all our goals tonight.

Aston Reese needs to embrace his role as Horny Jr and get himself entrenched in the crease

DO the dirty work tonight and it will pay off in spades 8-)

Dumo just had 3 really pathetic clearing attempts on that PK. Gotta get the puck out of the zone.
