Game 28: Pens @ The Devil

Game 28: The Pittsburgh Penguins @ The New Jersey Devils (7:08-FSN/WXDX)

The Pittsburgh Penguins head to New Jersey tonight to battle The Devil. The Devil is riding high winning 7 of the last 8. They Beat Montreal on Saturday 2-1 in overtime. Patty Elias got the overtime goal. Scott Clemmensen is Playing some solid goaltending in relief of the injured Marty Broduer.

Pens fans have to get used to the fact that everytime the Pens play the Devil, Zach Parise is gonna score a goal. Its gonna happen, there's nothing we can do about it, and if the Pens D doesn't start playing better its gonna be a long game tonight.
Bobby Holik is back in the lineup for The Devil tonight so that should bring the skill level down a little.

Line as per yahoo:
Goaltenders: Scott Clemmensen, Kevin Weekes.
Defensemen: Paul Martin/Colin White/Johnny Oduya/Bryce Salvador/Mike Mottau/Jay Leac.
First Line: Zach Parise/Travis Zajac/Jamie Langenbrunner.
Second Line: Patrik Elias/Dainius Zubrus/Brian Gionta
Third Line: Jay Pandolfo/John Madden/Brian Rolston
Fourth Line: Pierre-Luc Letourneau-Leblond/Bobby Holik/David Clarkson


The Pittsburgh Penguins enter tonights game on a 2 game losing streak. The last game the Pens played the Sabres and gave up a 3-1 lead to lose 4-3 in regulation. The Defense was terrible, the transition game was non-existant, there were multiple turnovers in the defensive zone, and not to mention the power play forgot that they had a game that night. The Pens will look to rebound from that horrible performance against a hat team in New Jersey.

The Pens keep adding to the injured injured defensmenl List, Hall Gil will be out 2 to 4 weeks. I'm thinking Ben Lovejoy will have another oppurtunity to impress tonight. he didn't disappoint against the Sabres, Best Defenseman on the ice maybe?

The Pens have called up Taffe and Wallace from the baby Pens. Nice to see Taffe make it back up here, and it will beinteresting to see this Wallace kid play.

The PensBlog is doing the unheard of. Another call to arms, but this time it's for the Washington Capitals. Like him or hate him, it would be a crime if Ovechkin wasn't a starter at the all star game. So vote Ovechkin into the top 3 of the all star game. The first ime i did, i threw up in my mouth a little. Its not that bad though, i will draw the line if Philly needs help, i won't go there.
