Penguins Game Day 46 - @ Toronto Maple Leafs

Toronto Maple Leafs

7:00 PM, Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Canada


The Penguins are coming off a tough loss to the Philadelphia Flyers a few nights ago. By tough loss, I mean they lost 7-4. What a shitty game for any team to lose, let alone the cross town rivals.

Today the Penguins will travel up to Canada to play the Leafs for the third time this season, second time in 13 days. The Penguins power play actually showed up for their first contest and recorded two PP goals in a 5-2 win at the Air Canada Centre on October 10:



The Leafs came back and took the second game of the series on December 27 when they bested the Penguins 4-3:

Lets take a look and see how MAF responds after getting yanked in 1+ period of play in the Flyers game. Sure he has struggled in the recent past, but he is the man and will bounce back.

Here is a look at the team comparison:



I will not be able to watch the game today because I will be traveling all day in the air but I will do one thing I never do, make a guarantee. The Penguins will win this game. Book it.

Lets Go Pens
