CONSOL Energy Center
Another afternoon game. Back-to-back games. Daylight Savings Time.
We barely managed to summon up the energy to write a gameday post. How is anyone supposed to play hockey?
Know your enemy: Oilers Nation
What they're saying about the Oilers:
The only lineup change for the Oilers should be that Steve MacIntyre might actually get a shift this afternoon after spending all 60 minutes stapled to the bench in Detroit. After a solid performance in Detroit, today would be a great time to see if Devan Dubnyk can put together solid back-to-back performances. There would be zero point in playing Nikolai Khabibulin today.
Season series: N/A
Last meeting: January 14, 2010 - Penguins Won 3-2
What we said in our recap:
As Pens fans, we'll definitely chalk this up to the Pens refusing to lie down. Jordan Staal has arguably been the Pens' best non-87 player for the last couple weeks.
The Oilers have lost three-in-a-row.
Not sure if it will be Khabibulin or Dubnyk in net. We'll guess that Fleury will start for the Pens.
