Tonight the Pens will take on the Philadelphia Flyers, in the second match-up of the season and the first game of a home-and-home this week. We always receive a good physical game when these two teams meet as they are involved in the cross state rival. The atmosphere tonight in the Igloo should feel like one of the playoffs. So buckle up Pens fans, we are going all 12 rounds. Here is your projected line up:
“You expect an intense game. I don’t think you expect somebody to possibly bite somebody. But you expect an intense game.”
-Captain Sidney Crosby
My thoughts for the game:
- Play a physical game but keep it your game. The Pens need not to take the bait of the troublesome Flyers
- Capitalize on the PP. We will possible see Geno on the point with Gonch tonight, maybe that will get things going
- Help Flower in front of the net. We need to clear the front of the net for Fleur, the Flyers are known for their gritty crease play.
