We wake up today with Evgeni Malkin suspended for one game and to be quite honest it's a shame he didn't connect harder so Michael Roflololol wouldn't be able to eat solid foods today. Helloooooooo Everybodyyyyy and welcome to Game 57 of the Penguins season. Tonight's game starts at 8 o'clock so that gives Matt Murray another hour to hit the bottle. Real talk though, Matt Murray sucks but his performance Monday night was pretty incredible considering his BAC was around a .69. The only thing higher than his BAC that night was his save percentage. The Flyers shot the puck about 911,420 times. The Penguins were ale to break through Carter Hart which is something the eight teams before them couldn't do. They received goals from Sidney Crosby, Nick Bjugstad, Jake Guentzel and Kris Letang. The Letang goal broke the franchise record for goals by a defenseman with 109. The Oilers come in to tonight's game with a 24-26-4 record and are coming off a loss to San Jose on Saturday night.
The Penguins should get Zach Aston-Reese back tonight. He's been out since January 8th after beating the living piss out of a Florida Panther. Justin Schultz will not play tonight which is now more problematic than ever considering that Olli Maatta was placed on injured reserve yesterday with an upper-body injury. That said, expect Chad Ruhwedel to be the sixth defenseman and Jack Johnson to get top four minutes. Yikes.
Expect Mikko Koskinen vs Matt Murray tonight.
Like we said earlier Evgeni Malkin is suspended for tonight's game for swinging his stick and unfortunately missing Michael Roflolol's head.
The Penguins will get to see the best player in the NHL tonight.
That said, McDavid has yet to beat Pittsburgh with Crosby in the lineup. They're 0-2-3 against Sid.
No Justin Schultz tonight. I'm beginning to think that he faked his injury and that he's actually fine.
Jack Johnson is a top 4 defenseman paired with Juuso Riikola tonight because Olli Maatta was placed on IR with an upper-body injury. Chad Ruhwedel will slot in for the time being.
As mentioned, Zach Aston-Reese will likely return tonight.
Expect Dominik Simon to sit in favor of ZAR.
CONFIRMED: Koskinen vs Murray tonight.
Ken Hitchcock is coaching the Oilers now if you didn't know. He should be shipped into space on the same rocket as Mike Sullivan.
Speaking of Sullivan he let a turtle pick tonight's lines.
Jake Guentzel is pretty good. He currently leads the team with 27 goals.
Silver lining of the Malkin suspension is Teddy Blueger returns to the lineup.
Negative note on the Malkin suspension. Matt Cullen is probably gonna get more minutes for no reason.
Matt Cullen sucks.
