Lundin has played in every game as a rookie. He's a +1 with 5 assists on a bad team.
Yeah, I'm going back to the well with the Crosby card again. Sid is the real deal.
This is a trap game for the Pens. Consider these factors:
- The Lightning really stink this year, but they're usually good against the Pens. They're 6-0 in their last 6 games in Pittsburgh
- The Bolts are just 5-14-3 on the road but have won their previous two away from home.
- They have a few players who are pretty bad in +/-, but their big guns (Lecavalier and St Louis) are either even or positive. Heck, Michel Ouellet is a +6!
The thing that scares me is the Pens have been off since Monday. That's an unusually long break for this time of year. I think we can count on Michel Therrien keeping their heads in the right place.
Malkin now has 12 goals in the past 12 games. Crosby is tied (as of Thursday night) for the league lead in scoring with 63 points. The team is tied for first place in the Atlantic. Ty Conklin is unbelievable right now. What could go wrong? If the Pens do their job, we won't have to answer that question.
Let's Go Pens!
