Game #18 - vs New York Rangers

New York Rangers (10-8-1, 21 pts) at Pittsburgh Penguins (8-7-2, 18 pts)

The plan tonight should be simple - the Rangers will take their share of penalties. The Penguins need to:
  1. Score on the power play (very important)
  2. Minimize the Rangers chances by not taking stupid penalties
  3. Avoid the shootout (Lundqvist is perfect in shootouts this year, in that he hasn't allowed a single goal)

Other than that, Jagr is going for goal #600. Much as I like Jaromir, I'd rather see him get it somewhere else.

Let's Go Pens!

I don't mind him getting his 600th tonight as long as the final score reads Rangers 1 Pens 6

Turned out to be a great defensive game for the Pens. The only big mistakes I saw were by Whitney. He had a few turnovers, one that turned into the Rags sole goal, and another that would have been a goal but Fleury was ready. Besides that they looked really good. Petro impressed me and made me miss Eaton all that much more. Surprised to see LeClair as a scratch but can't say I disagree. PP was 2/139 or something but at least they had a few goals.
