7:00 p.m., Philips Arena, Atlanta GA
The Penguins are back in action after a huge win last night over the Tampa Bay Lighting. As has been the trend this season the Pens are back in action, this time on the road.
Should be interesting to see what Disco does with the goaltending situation. MAF had a big game last night and Disco has usually been going with the hot hand of late and I wouldn't be one bit surprised to see MAF back out there tonight. Hopefully he has a solid game and starts to get out of this mini funk that he is in.
Dupers looked like Super Man last night. He has been the best winger on this team, bar none. I was a pretty big fan of his when he came here but I think now he is starting to finally find his nitch and playing very nicely. Although he doesn't have the top line talent I think he has the hard work to make it fit on the top line, and anywhere else he may play.
Mud preview. Had to hurry it.
That's what she said.
