Game 12 Pittsburgh Penguins @ ST. Louis Blues

Pens @ Blues (8:30-FSN/WXDX)

The Blues are are coming off a shutout loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina Goalie Cam Ward only had to make 19 saves for the shut out. Sounds like the Pens and Blues play the same type of game. Tuoma Ruutu Scored the lone goal on their 7th power play of the night.

The Bright spot for the Blues last game was the puckstopper Chris Mason, making 28 saves in his first game back from emergency appendectomy surgery.

Line Combos for the Blues were:

First Line: Lee Stempniak/Andy McDonald/Brad Boyes.
Second Line: Paul Kariya/Keith Tkachuk/David Backes.
Third Line: David Perron/Patrik Berglund/T.J. Oshie.
Fourth Line: Dan Hinote/Jay McClement/Cam Janssen.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are not even close to looking like a team with chemistry right now. they are on a 3-game losing streak and if Crosby is out for an extended period of time, the pens could be in a tough position, Crosby is listed as day to day with an undisclosed injury.

Malkin in pissed off at himself and everybody else. [GAZETTE]. The Pens just aren't playing good hockey right now. My opinion, get Satan back on Crosby's line.

It's a long season. Coach T will get this team going, he has done it every season he has coached here, and i'm not even close to bridge jumping yet.
