Could it be another non-standard pre-game write up?
Yes, because the Pens need to look back at Game 2
Hit everything that moves and force Brian Elliot to play.
Pens won in Ottawa 4-1 on 10/12/09
They can do it again
Pens can win on the road, here's my proof:
Per Penguins.nhl.com - The Penguins did not skate in their morning line combinations, a playoff tradition under Dan Bylsma. But there were two notable players on the ice for the Penguins. Goaltender Brent Johnson skated and practiced for the first time since Game 1 of the series. And defenseman Ben Lovejoy joined the team after his recent call up from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
Head coach Dan Bylsma addressed reporters following the morning skate. Here is what Bylsma had to say:
On Johnson’s condition: You saw him on the ice today so he is doing a lot better and is symptom-free from what he was dealing with before. He will not back up tonight but he is progressing well. Hopefully we will see him at practice tomorrow.
On Leopold’s condition: Jordan did not come on the trip with us. He stayed back in Pittsburgh for further evaluation. We didn’t think that he would be playing in these two games so he didn’t come with us.
On how the change in venue will affect how the series is played: I think anytime you change venues in a series I think you take a deep breath on the plain ride here as the home team. I think you get re-energized by coming back home to your home rink so this is a re-establishment of your game for me tonight. They get their fans, their building and their energy. They split in Pittsburgh so they come back home having accomplished quite a bit. They are ready to play Game 3 at home. We played a much better game in Game 2 and want to continue what we started and how we played and get better at our game. We have that challenge here on the road. The first 10 minutes will be pretty amped up here in the building so we will expect that.
