Game #46 - at Toronto Maple Leafs

Game 46
Penguins (27-17-1, 55 points) at Maple Leafs (15-21-9, 39 points)

Why does it matter?
The Leafs simply aren't very good. The Pens need a win. Let's follow the KISS principle.

What has been happening lately?
  • Pens - The low point of the season so far was the loss to Philly on Thursday.
  • Maple Leafs - Since beating the Pens on December 27th, this team is just 1-4.
Questions to be answered
  • Which goalie will we see? I'd say we're likely to see Gustavsson (The Monster) for the first time, but there's no rhyme or reason to who is starting right now for the Leafs.
  • Will the intensity be there? It was there for a bit on Thursday, but it seems to come and go.
  • 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
  • Get on the power play! The Leafs have allowed a power play goal in seven straight, including 6 in the past two games alone!
  • Stay patient - the Leafs are a pain to play against. Don't get frustrated.
  • Get the lead, please.
