Tonight, as we close down 2016, the Penguins close out their first half of their schedule before the bye week against the Montreal Canadiens. The Canadiens are currently leading the Atlantic, but leading the Atlantic doesn't necessarily mean you're actually good. Carey Price is still healthy so the Habs aren't quite struggling yet coming into tonight with a 22-9-5 record. Matt Murray was injured on Tuesday night against the Hurricanes and he's considered Week to Week so the Penguins called up Tristan Jarry on Wednesday. Jarry will act as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup for the time being. Kris Letang could return to the Penguins lineup tonight. Shea Weber sucks.
If you ever followed us on Heyyyyy Fannnssss before the brand split to POA, you'll know that Brandon and I always were talking about how the Canadiens logo looks like a toilet seat. Some guy actually got a toilet seat shaped like the Canadiens logo for Christmas so we wanted to point that out.
We want to also take this time to remember how incredible 2016 was to be a Penguins fan. It was 366 days ago when the 2015-16 Penguins season turned around with a huge come from behind win in Detroit. The Penguins were fun again and we all know what happened after that, reflect on 2016 as the only negative thing happening was Harambe dying.
Sidney Crosby is only 20 points away from 1000 for his career
PK Subban will be out tonight as he was traded in July
The Canadiens have a bunch of computer generated forwards playing again
Carey Price is pretty good
Marc-Andre Fleury is starting for the Penguins (@vo)
Kris Letang probably will play tonight
Last game in 8 days as the Pens bye week starts tomorrow
Derrick Pouliot will not be in the lineup as he was sent to WBS Thursday (Thank God)
At least this game isn't in Montreal so their fans can boo an icing.
From us here at POA, Happy New Year
