Tonight the Penguins (10-7-3) will play their first game in Ottawa since their 2-1 loss in game six of the Eastern Conference Finals when they faceoff against the Senators (8-5-3) with puck drop set for just after 7:30PM.
The Penguins will also play against center Matt Duchene tonight. If you can remember, Duchene was linked to the Penguins in several trade rumors for the better half of a year. You know what that means? He may score 10-12 goals tonight and send Matt Murray into an early retirement.
In all reality, Ottawa is not good at home as they are only 4-3-4 at Canadian Tire Centre so far this season. The Penguins have not been good on the road, going 4-7-2 and losing four straight as well as seven of their last eight road games so far this year, so needless to say, this game is a toss up. In fairness to the Penguins, only Arizona has played more games this season coming into tonight's game, having played twenty games already this season.
It's no secret the Penguins haven't played well this season. In reality it could be a Stanley Cup hangover, or it could be the fact that they've played 6,696 games over the course of the last year and a half, but either way the Penguins haven't played their best yet. Who knows though, tonight could be the night where the Penguins actually win a game on the road.
*No clue who the stripes are, so we can't really inform you*
Matt Duchene wears #95. That's weird as hell.
Never forget when Chris Kunitz scored two goals in Game Seven. Two goals.
Expect Craig Anderson vs Matt Murray in net tonight.
Matt Duchene is playing home game tonight even though he was traded 11 days ago.
Never forget when Sidney Crosby ended Marc Methot's finger on a clean hit. Good for him.
Eugene Melnyk sucks.
Crosby finally scored a goal last game, breaking 11 game goal-less draught.
Bobby Ryan should return for the Sens tonight, he's been out with a broken finger since the 8th game of the season.
The Senators are coming off two wins in Sweden and have won three of their last four games.
Matt Duchene isn't a Penguin which makes me mad. But then I realize other Penguin fans are mad and that makes me happy.
The Steelers play the Titans on Thursday Night Football and our own @kingling43 is the 'employee of the game' or something dumb for Aramark. Please be sure to wish Drew well. You will see him at PNC Park next season, so make sure you congratulate him.
