    WOOOOOO!!!... The game is on NHLN tonight!... I actually get to watch a game on something other than my laptop!

    ... Unfortunately, they are also running an Ovechkin special at 7pm right before the game...

    I really would like to see the Pens win this game. We're still a little battered and bruised obviously...and we're without our starting goalie...it'd just be a great win to beat a GREAT team. Hopefully it could spark us. Our D will have to play really tight in our end tonight I think b/c Ovechkin, I am afraid, would just destroy Brent Johnson.

    Ovechkin special... nice. That's just something to watch to get the hate juices flowing.

    **** Ovechkin, that cherry pickin, defense incompetent, caveman looking mother f'er and his entire team

    Brent Johnson however should know a lot of Ovaries tendencies and such since Johnson was their goalie... of course that works in Ovaries favor as well.

    I don't quite understand it. Every game during the playoffs last year we'd allow Ovechkin to be either wide open or play his game which is nothing more than skating from blue line to blue line and taking a shot. He doesn't work down low or forecheck, he doesn't get dirty in the crease... I mean, the guy avoids all physical activity unless he's looking to nail or cheap shot someone with a hit...

    You know how you beat the Craps and Ovechkin? You put a spy on him and you step in front of his *** force him to be a "play maker", because his vision in the passing game is below average. It amazes me how many teams simply allow Ovechkin to shoot. He plays the law of averages "if i shoot 10 times a game, chances are 1 will go in".

    That's the first thing you do to beat the Crapitals. The 2nd thing is you employ the hard physical forecheck. That's how we beat them last season. Their defense is both bad and soff and had it not been for Varlamov, we'd have probably swept the Craps.

    Defensively, unless the Crapitals have changed offensive schemes and such - Block shots. They aren't a team that works low, want to work cycles and have physical forechecks. They are all about their transition game, qwhich also means, don't turn the puck over in the neutral zone

    Man, I'm pumped for this game. I hate Capitals, possibly a little more than the Flyers cause the Craps are an actual threat and good team. The Red wings are right up there

    Very good news, but my parents will probably be watching TV at that time.

    Here were the FW line combos at the morning skate. I didn't see anything about D pairings:

    Guerin-Crosby-Kennedy
    Fedotenko-Malkin-Johnson
    Cooke-Staal-Rupp
    Jeffrey-Adams-Godard

    Guerin-Crosby-TFK could be interesting. I know nothing about Johnson, but you you'd think that they wouldn't immediately throw him into the fire playing on Geno's wing? Then again what the hell do I know?

    **** the Craps..

    Updated the GDT graphic with the Pens offense lines. The Craps could be skating a rookie defenseman tonight. they called up Carlson... no word on whether he plays.

    The Pens lines... that should be interesting and why the **** is the WBS leading goal scorer skating on the 4ht ****ing line?? Is that what Benny was *****ing about in the other thread? If so, I understand now. I'd have kept the 3rd line as is, moved rupp up to Geno's line, Put Jeffrey on sid's line and Johnson in Rupps place on the 4th.

    Jeffrey - Crosby - Guerin
    Rupp - Malkin - Fedotenko
    Cooke - Staal - Kennedy
    Johnson - Adams - Godard

    I'll be doing a few things before DA game. I'll be back in at game time for this GDT.

    wish I had the time I wanted today, I was gonna make up some Ovechkin photoshops.


    et's not forget Alexander Semin fighting like a girl and Marc Staal getting beat down by it

    Brent Johnson should have an extra bit of energy to say "THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME SIGN WITH A WINNING TEAM!!!!" to the craps
