Game #9 - at Philadelphia Flyers

Really quick preview - I'm currently on vacation :)

I'm going to agree with Will from the comments - I think tonight will be a "stick up for each other" night for the Flyers, who will be looking to avenge the game that got them off on the wrong foot, the 4-0 drubbing in the opener. The Pens will need to play tough and have their heads on a swivel, especially if the game isn't close.

The Devils took back first place the other night, and the Pens have a chance to reclaim it tonight with a win and a Devils loss.

Oh, and Karl Stewart and Eric Cairns are gone - Stewart was claimed off of waivers and Cairns was sent to Wilkes-Barre.

Let's Go Pens!

We need to get all of the points we possibly can off these bad teams because I think we're going to be right on the fence come playoff time.

Can't say I'm really sad to see Cairns go... he was a ok protector for Crosby last year but the Pens filled that role with better players this season. Did not see enough of Stewart to really form an opinion, but good for him getting picked up by Chicago with the way they are playing early in the season.

Hope the Pens come to play tonight... a win could be a huge confidence boost going into a tough upcoming road trip.
