Game #66 - at Ottawa Senators

Pittsburgh Penguins (35-21-9, 79 pts) at Ottawa Senators (38-23-5, 81 pts)

Prior meeting:
Senators 6, Penguins 3 on November 10th at Pittsburgh

Short preview - no time today.

There are three games left this season between the Pens and Sens. If the standings stay the way they are, there will be more after that. If the season ended today, the Pens and Sens would square off in a first round series. That doesn't bode well for the Flightless Birds, as they tend to get the stars in the eyes when playing the Senators.

The Pens haven't won a game against the Senators since November 22nd, 2003. It's time for that to change, but it won't be easy. They'll need the big guns to light it up (Crosby, Malkin, et al) and Fleury to be on top of his game.

Let's Go Pens!

I think we'll finally see big Georges drop them tonight. I don't know who the big heavyweight is on Ott. but Neil is always looking to mix it up. Should be a great game. If Fleury lets in < 3 goals, I think we win. Crosby gets 3 points to put him over 100 for the season.
