New lines plus the ducks struggles on the road and our good record at home sounds like a recipe for a win tonight. LGP
OMG new lines!!!!
I'm praying that Sid and Geno get going tonight.
This would be the kind of matchup, in the olden days of yore, that the Penguins would get up for and bounce back in glorious fashion. But not tonight. Tonight they get trounced.
I'm anxious to see Bennett on Crosby's wing for a few shifts, though.
We're gonna win. I guarantee it.
Iced is getting slammed today.
I'm only staying up to watch this because of the new first line. If this was all a joke and it's still Dupuis up there, I'm gonna lose it.
I'm going to miss this due to work, but the Pens usually win when I don't get to watch them play. So you're welcome.
And those new lines have me awfully excited. I'm not sure Dupuis on the second line is quite what I envisioned but Bennett on the top is giving me a huge Beauner. At any rate it will be nice to finally finally see something different.
I'll give it 10 minutes into the first that DB reverts back to his same old lines if they dont produce a goal.
Ducks got dat nasty depth
I don't feel good about this one. But this is game one of potential long-term line changes so let's get some chemistry going and go from there.
Also - love seeing Benny succeeding in a prominent role on a good team.
No way Bennett is gonna play the entire game on the 1st line. At most, he'll get two periods to show what he can do, unless he makes a mistake earlier.
y u heff b mad?
I am. And I'm not even enjoying it.
This teams due for a blowout loss soon. 7-1 Ducks, they will be all over us I think, tops in the league too.
Two periods is fine with me. As long as he plays there AT ALL, I'm happy.
I will be shocked if it lasts 10 minutes. KCD by the 7 minute mark is my guess.
That's what all the masochists say
I see how this works, Duper gets bumped off the crosby line against one of the best teams in the league... thus assuring when they beat us it can be blamed on the line change and thus KCD will live on forevermore
I'm gonna be the optimist that Beau will stick with Sid. But I can definitely see DB panicking if we're getting blown out or even go back to KCD to hold a lead in the third.
Amen. I had no plans to watch this game, but I have to stay up and watch the first line for at least one period.
Damn guys, I'm as negative as the next poster here right now, but can't we just enjoy Bennett with Sid before turning it negative?
yep. I'm excited about tonight.
Not gonna jinx it tonight so I won't watch the game, but the notion of splitting KCD at least for the morning skate has been delightfully registered. Enjoy the game, dudes!
Same here !
No matter what DB does people will complain, hes doing exactly what many people wanted him to do with the top line and people are still complaining about it.
