Rebound.

As in the Pens have to put Tuesday night behind them.

Rebound.

Get off to a better start then they have the past 4 games.

Rebound.

As in Fleury needs to absorb more shots and control rebounds.

In game four on the Jackets fourth goal Fleury made a clean stop from a shot in the slot. He could have and should have swallowed it up but instead he kicked it out and the puck ended up out near the blue line. Both Cullen and Rowney missed making a play on the puck and Columbus turned it into another goal.
A simple play like that where the goalie fails and his wingers don't get sticks on the loose puck are the kind of things that happened way too much Tuesday night.

Kessel and Daley both missed practice yesterday but are expected to play.

Penguins projected lineup

Jake Guentzel -- Sidney Crosby -- Conor Sheary

Bryan Rust -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Scott Wilson -- Nick Bonino -- Patric Hornqvist

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Matt Cullen -- Carter Rowney

Brian Dumoulin -- Ron Hainsey

Ian Cole -- Justin Schultz

Olli Maatta -- Trevor Daley

Marc-Andre Fleury

Tristan Jarry

Scratched: Cameron Gaunce, Josh Archibald, Mark Streit, Tom Sestito

Injured: Matt Murray (lower body), Kris Letang (upper body), Carl Hagelin (lower body), Chris Kunitz (lower body), Chad Ruhwedel (upper body)

It was only one game-the kind that a team like the Pens REBOUND from.

GO PENS!!!

Wilson has been invisible this series. Not a bad thing if you're on the 4th line but he's playing 3rd line minutes. I would've replaced him with Archibald

Wow.
Schultz and Hainsey with multiple give aways in their own end that last few minutes. Fleury was stout and some of the forwards(Bonino for one) came back and helped the flower.
We have to play smarter in our own end and that means if confronted don't toss it across the middle of the ice in front of the net.Columbus is sitting on that. Bang it off the boards and even if it doesn't get out or under control you live to fight.
Some of those chips from the corner found open Jacket sticks and we were lucky to come out ahead.

Don't know why we can't get a more flow in the opening period. There are a few shifts where the Birdies owned the zone but then they would go three or four shifts with nothing earned in the offensive zone.

Trying not to be negative but it was more slop again far too much.

Second line comes through again. Fleury with the great save twice in front(after the TO).

2-0

Man do these guys make the most of their chances. The ability to finish is phenomenal.

Fleury has been MUCH better so far tonight. Keep it up Flower!

Rust again!

Malkin with fine acting performance on the cross check. Still want to see that slash he took.

3-0
