Redemption: Game 2 preview

Flyers have the series lead, but let this soak in your noggin. Dating back to the 2010 Stanley Cup playoffs, road teams hold a 59-47 record. Pens need to take this series back to Philadelphia tied and do work there.

Expect to see some new look PP units. The team had some different rotations on the man advantage during practice yesterday, including Crosby, Letang, Sullivan and Martin running the point. Could bring life to their struggling special teams play.

Also on the offensive side, the Penguins need to do a better job of entering the zone by not running the dump and chase. Look for a lot of forechecking by the Pens, and keeping the puck from going behind them in their zone.

Malkin and Neal need to show up tonight. Period.

Fleury has always bounced back strong after a loss during the season, and especially well in the playoffs. Expect him to do his little shimmy with the glove a few times tonight. It makes the women in Shadyside go crazy.

Finally, this.

Tie this series up boys. Go Pens.

I think you mean "dump and watch," because there was no chasing going on in the 2nd, 3rd, or overtime periods. They dumped the puck in and watched the Flyers go get it and come back at them.
