    Don't think he is just a mistake on my end.

    Always love games against the Pens. Crosby is just so incredible to watch. 3-2 Blues S/O win.

    Finally going to a game. According to the paper, looks like Hitch is going with a hard match of Backes vs. Crosby and Berglund vs. Malkin. I think he wants to maximize Schwartz and Tarasenko at even strength as he felt they got lost in the shuffle last game with all the penalties despite playing well. Will be a good challenge for them. Would love to see a mostly penalty free game and watch two good teams play some great even strength hockey (5th and 6th best possession teams).

    why? Leo still sick or injured or what? not beeing against Ian, just thinking Leo had a pretty good game vs the Flames and his confidence sure has risen after his first points.

    Good luck gents. I always enjoy games against the west. No BS like we see against all the schmuck teams in the east--just hockey. This game has potential to be really interesting.

    Cheers.

    Cole played one of his best games in the NHL against the Pens a couple of years ago. That's the only reason I can think of. This isn't a game that you give a maintenance day, especially since they could've done that against Calgary on Thursday. Maybe they want a bit more physicality against the speed of the Pens? I don't know.

    Anyway, I'm excited for the game. Hopefully we get a full focus 100% effort tonight. Anything less will be a loss. Must limit the stupid penalties. If the option is sit for 2 minutes or give Crosby a great scoring chance, then definitely sit. We just can't have too many men, or delay of game, or concealing the puck garbage penalties. Make them earn it.

    I'm calling 4-3 Blues in OT.

    Hitch says Leopold has a hand injury, not sure if it's serious or not

    This is going to be a huge test for our club, hopefully we can shut down Crosby and Malkin and come out with the win.

    This one shouldn't be easy, except the west usually beats the east.

    Finally going to a game as well and REALLY looking forward to this as it should be a great one. I'd be okay with OT. :)

    Interested to see how the Schwartz-Berglund-Tarasenko line does tonight (mainly the latter - I thought he was real good last game again).

    Also looking forward to Steen vs. Crosby. How cool does it sound to say that? Crosby is obviously still much better, but it's pretty awesome to have a top scorer I must say.

    Let's Go Blues! Get big win number 11 tonight baby!!

    If we play the entire 60 like we did the first period Thursday night we'll win.

    My prediction 5-2 Blues. Schwartz, Tarasenko & Oshie get a goal apiece tonight. Backes & Steen get the last two between them, that's what I'm picking anyway.

    Thanks for the updates. If Martin doesn't go the pairing of Orpik & Engelland will be used.

    Bigs pretty much covered the rest. Our lineup is almost imposible to guess for the last 3/4 years. "INJURIES"


    Should be a great game. *CHEERS!*

    Pretty pumped about being able to go to this one. Over the past couple years these have been good games. Go blues!

    Been looking forward to this game for a while. The last few Blues/Pens games have been great. Plus, I really enjoy watching the Pens play. Great team.

    Looking at that last game clip, Berglund seems much faster than he does these days. I don't know what it is but he seems really slow this year and even last year.
