Tampa Bay Lightning
7:00 p.m., Consol Energy Center, Pittsburgh, PA
It is just one of those season so far. Yea, I got it now. One of those seasons so far.
Things can't go much worse for the Penguins than things already have. That was brough to rock bottom against the Boston Bruins. If that wasn't rock bottom of this season so far then I don't want to see what is. You should have to think, going into a third period with a 4-2 lead "Well we are up 4-2 so we need to get four more in case we give up a five spot." Jesus what a massacre. I thought the Saw movies were done after this one that came out on Halloween this year. They really rushed the next one.
It is only November, not February so this thing could obviously go much, much worse than it is right now, but there is a ton of time left in the season. Good thing the NHL takes half the league.
I don't typically make brash prediction (ha) but I have a big feeling that the Penguins are going to step up and get it done tonight. MAF'er is going to be huge tonight and get a fire lit and come through. I am feeling something low scoring but I think the Penguins can itch out a 3-1 win and start to get everyone off the bridge a smuge.
