7:30 PM, Mellon Arena, Pittsburgh, PA
The Penguins look to continue their good play on Thursday night when they play host to the rival Philadelphia Flyers at the Mellon Arena.
Here is the Penguins projected lineup from the Penguins website:
Word is that Sarge is going to be in the lineup tonight but I haven't see where that is 100% confirmed. If he is then I would expect Skoula to sit and Gonch to play with Brooks.
The Penguins are also 3-0 so far this season against the Flyers. The first of the games was a 5-4 win on October 8:
The second win came at Mellon Arena on December 15 with a 6-1 route:
The third was the back-end of the home and home from December 15, on December 17 in Philadelphia which saw the Penguins best the Flyers 3-2 in a shootout:
If I had advice for the Pittsburgh crowd tonight I would start a chant of Crosby sucks. If we could get the organ to start this up it would be even better. We all know how Crosby plays when you start that up (obviously Flyers fans don't know).
These are always big games and might just be what the Penguins need in order to get back into the flow of playing consistant good hockey.
