Geno needs to carry the load. Time to show why you were the #2 overall pick.
Huet has been hot lately, and he owns the Pens - 3-0-0, 1.46 GAA
The Habs are hot. They're 7-1-2 in their past 10 games. The Pens have their work cut out for them.
Without Sidney Crosby, the Pens are just 0-2-2 and have managed only 7 goals in those four games. Malkin will obviously need to be able to score without Crosby to set him up. Other players will need to fill in as well. I'd expect to see Christensen back in the lineup, as the Pens could really use his offensive talents.
Not sure who will be in goal. The Post-Gazette and the Trib are split (Trib says Sabu, while the Post-Gazette says Conklin), which means that there is no definitive answer - the writers are playing coach again.
Time to see if the Pens can step up and play as a team without their leader. I say they can.
Let's Go Pens!
