CONSOL Energy Center
Know the Enemy:
The Flyers peed all over the CONSOL ice during the first ever game in the building.
Daniel Briere is the first person to score a goal in the arena.
Sergei Bobrovsky joined a long line of rookie goaltenders who the Pens made look like all-stars that night.
Add on top of things that the Pens have lost two straight and it really brings the rage up.
If it doesn't, head over to this post we did before the game that day.
The Pens won 5-1 in Philly a couple of weeks ago.
Don't need to say anything fancy here.
The Pens lines:
Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
Arron Asham - Mark Letestu - Evgeni Malkin
Matt Cooke - Max Talbot - Tyler Kennedy
Mike Comrie - Mike Rupp - Craig Adams
Brooks Orpik - Alex Goligoski
Paul Martin - Kris Letang
Ben Lovejoy - Deryk Engelland
FleuryNo Godard. He's out with an illness.
The Flyers lines:
Ville Leino - Daniel Briere - Scott Hartnell
Andreas Nodl - Mike Richards - James van Riemsdyk
Darroll Powe - Claude Giroux - Jeff Carter
Jody Shelly - Blair Betts - Nikolay Zherdev
Matt Carle - Chris Pronger
Kimmo Timonen - Braydon Coburn
Sean O'Donnell - Andrej Meszaros
They predict 3-1 Pens.
It sounds all good until you read this:
PIT GOAL: M.Comrie
That probably won't happen.
Prove us wrong Comrie.
Prove us wrong.
There's a free poster giveaway tonight.
Dicks will have the posters available for free starting tomorrow.
Letestu may move to wing when Staal returns.
Arron Asham is ready to kill his old team (or something.)
"You just go out there and play. It doesn’t really matter whom you’re with... I have a role on the team, a role on the line. I try to stay within that. I can’t get too fancy. That’s what’s going to hurt."
TiqIQ put together this chart:
Interesting stuff. The Rangers and Islanders have about the same demand.
There's more info like this on the Pensblog Tickets Facebook page.
TiqIQ is still showing some tickets available for tonight. Hopefully those don't get snapped up by obnoxious Flyers fans.
