Hagelin is a game-time decision. It has been two weeks since the second line has been together-hence one reason for a lack of scoring beyond the top line.

The Caps don't have Wilson and his 16-17 minutes a game plus his work on the PK.

Penguins projected lineup
Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Carl Hagelin -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Conor Sheary -- Derick Brassard -- Bryan Rust

Dominik Simon -- Riley Sheahan -- Tom Kuhnhackl

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Justin Schultz

Jamie Oleksiak -- Chad Ruhwedel

Matt Murray

Casey DeSmith

Scratched: Daniel Sprong, Carter Rowney, Matt Hunwick, Josh Jooris, Tristan Jarry, Michael Leighton, Garrett Wilson, Jarred Tinordi, Lukas Bengtsson, Jean-Sebastien Dea, Adam Johnson, Teddy Blueger, Thomas Di Pauli, Chris Summers, Andrey Pedan

Injured: Zach Aston-Reese (broken jaw/concussion)

If Hagelin can't go, is it Rowney on the wing?

Sprong, Rowney, and Jooris all skated this morning. My thought would be Jooris takes a wing spot on the 4th line, and one of Rust or Sheary moves up to the 2nd.

Hahah- you're funny!

Rowney is a Sully favorite so I'd practically bet my house he's in before any of those dudes.

That being said I'm thankful that doesn't need to happen as I'm sure Hags is in.

Special Teams and goaltending. Pens got the goaltending in Game 1.

Games 2/3 Holtby did well and our ST's sucked cock.

How much longer can L1 carry this team on it's back? IDK but Geno/Brass/Kessel injuries don't seem like they'll be improving until after the playoffs.

Will Sheary fall down less than 20 times tonight with no one touching him?
Will Kessel shoot a damn puck?
Will the defense make under or over 15 terrible pinches?

Find out on the next episode...

Has Rowney played on the wing since that shitshow vs. Boston in March? I know that Jooris was getting time as a winger late in the season.

That said, yes, I think Hags plays tonight so this is moot.

Sully and his pets.

I'd bet Brassco's house as well that Rowney is in if Hags can't go.
No way Sprong sees any time because you have understand that once he fucks up and he will then the Pens will be down a forward the rest of the game. Too important a game to take a chance on that.

IDK about ST's last game. They killed the one penalty and were right back on the PK and had it stopped until the last few seconds. And we did score a PP goal in the game.

I don’t get the Geno criticism here. In the last game, he had a primary assist and one shot rung off the inside of the post and another shot that got through Holtby but Niskanen stopped from going over the goal line. He didn’t make any major defensive gaffes. It was a pretty solid game.

Don’t commit dumb penalties.

And Letang; mature a little would you? That slash you gave Ovie after he scored was bush league. Even after getting beat your emotions need to be controlled a bit because one of those dumb reactionary penalties can cost us the entire series.

Smart, fast, aggressive hockey.

Zeke I’m with you on Geno. I thought he looked very good last game and damn near won it.

The dumb penalty happens. We just can’t win if we are constantly on the PK against WAS. Their possession game is too good.

Well...he did have what I would classify the dumbest penalty I've seen in some time that led to the Caps' first goal.
