Game #34 - vs Philadelphia Flyers

Game 34
Flyers (15-15-1, 31 pts) at Penguins (22-10-1, 45 pts)

Mellon Arena - Pittsburgh

Why does it matter?
Pens. Flyers. Any other explanation needed?

What has been happening lately?
  • Pens - The Pens are finally back at full strength and keep trucking along.
  • Flyers - On November 18th, the Flyers were 12-5-1. Since then they're 3-10.
Questions to be answered
  • Can the Pens get through this home and home without any new injuries?
  • The power play is still the worst in the East. It certainly looked better against Montreal Florida, but looks mean nothing. Can the Pens translate the effort into results? To be fair, it won the game against Florida, but was still just 1-6.
  • I'm still looking for a shut out from a Pens goalie. Can they get one? (this question is staying here until they do)
Keys to the game
  • Stay away from the stupid stuff.
  • If the Flyers go to sleep, let them sleep.
  • The Flyers played last night (this is getting to be a habit). Take advantage of tired legs.
