It's been since May 18th, a 6-0 beatdown to clinch the series since the Penguins and Flyers have matched up. It hasn't seemed like almost five months since that playoff series but time keeps marching on.
Martin "French Toast" Biron is being haunted now, so it looks like Antero Niitymaki is going to play which you would think bodes well for the Penguins who are still struggling to find their way offensively (2 goals in the past 2 games). Also Petr Sykora practiced today and his groin reportedly held up well. If Geno gets his running buddy back that could do a lot of good for the offense too.
That's your key to the game, it's how the Penguins can put pucks in nets. Simple but the offense just hasn't looked ontrack yet. Enough talk of the cross continental trip, the free agent defections, the mounting injuries, enough. Last time we checked the firepowers is still there. Let's do it boys.
Also remember the game is going to be on Versus so get ready for 360 degrees of all things Sidney Crosby.
