    Default Game 17 : Penguins vs. Lightning : 11.13.10


    LIGHTNING (8-5-2) at PENGUINS (7-8-1)

    TV -- RIS, SUN (HD); FS-Pittsburgh (HD)

    Last 10 -- Tampa Bay 4-4-2; Pittsburgh 4-5-1

    Season series -- It's the second of four meetings this season. Tampa Bay beat Pittsburgh 5-3 at the St. Pete Times Forum on Oct. 27. The Lightning have won nine of their last 12 in Pittsburgh, though this is their first visit to the new Consol Energy Center.

    Big story -- What a daily double -- visiting Alex Ovechkin and Washington on Thursday, followed by a trip to Pittsburgh to face Sidney Crosby the next night. That's the task confronting the Lightning, who were tied 2-2 early in the third period against the Caps before Alexander Semin's hat trick gave Washington a 6-3 win. The Penguins figure to be in an ornery mood after surrendering five goals in the third period to Boston on Wednesday, turning a 4-2 lead into a 7-4 loss.

    Team Scope:

    Lightning -- The Bolts didn't lack for chances in the game at Washington -- they fired 41 shots and tested Michal Neuvirth early and often. But only Teddy Purcell, Ryan Malone and Steven Stamkos managed to beat the rookie goaltender.

    "We had chances to win the game," said Stamkos, who leads the NHL with 14 goals. "We didn't bury opportunities. ... They come down and score. That's the way it goes sometimes."

    Penguins -- The Penguins looked like they were on their way to a victory on Wednesday before falling apart in the third period.

    Captain Sidney Crosby thinks the Penguins need to play a little smarter, especially in their own zone.

    "I think it's just taking chances that you might not have to. And obviously when you have a lead you never want to sit back," he told the team's website. "That's the worst thing you can do. You want to also make sure you're not giving up big chances and you want to err on the side of caution. We just need to be a little bit smarter, whether it's in the defensive zone or making good reads and maybe pulling back. Little details like that can create some problems."

    Who's hot -- Stamkos has 4 goals and 6 points in his last three games. Martin St. Louis has four points in that same span. Crosby had a goal and a pair of assists on Wednesday and is 4-3-7 in his last three games.

    Injury report -- The loss at Washington also cost the Lightning their captain. Vincent Lecavalier left the game with a broken right hand and will miss at least three weeks. Winger Steve Downie (back) didn't play Thursday and isn't expected to be in the lineup on Friday. Simon Gagne (neck) is out indefinitely. Penguins star Evgeni Malkin didn't practice Thursday after twice needing attention from the trainers during Wednesday's game. Coach Dan Bylsma wouldn't say whether Malkin will play. Center Jordan Staal is still out with a broken hand.

    Stat pack -- Martin St. Louis had a pair of goals in the win last month and has 38 points in 38 games against the Penguins in his career. Pittsburgh is 2-5-0 in its new home and plays four of its next five games there.

    Puck drop -- With the new format adopted for this year's All-Star Game, it's not impossible that Crosby could be one of the captains picking a team. While he admits that "it would be fun," he says there could be some drawbacks.

    "There would be a little bit of pressure that comes with it," he said. "You don't want a guy to leave someone off their team, but I don't know how they're going to do it. Nobody wants to be the last guy picked either. Either way, it's going to be fun for everyone involved."

    LET'S GO PENS!!! LET'S GO PENS!!!

    I won't be here for the entire GDT, I started sleeping more, you know, it's healthy for ya, but I'll stay up for one, maybe two periods.

    Lightning-Penguins Preview
    STATS LLC

    The Pittsburgh Penguins and Tampa Bay Lightning have plenty of star power on their respective rosters. That power will be a little dimmer than usual Friday night.

    Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier will be out of action and Pittsburgh center Evgeni Malkin may join him when the clubs face off at the CONSOL Energy Center.

    Off to a sluggish start by his standards with 12 points in 15 games, Malkin was attended to by trainers twice during the Penguins' 7-4 loss to Boston on Wednesday.

    The two-time All Star was held out of practice Thursday, and coach Dan Bylsma wouldn't say if he would be available against Tampa Bay.

    "Maintenance. He's still dealing with bumps and bruises," Bylsma told the Penguins' official website. "He played a hard game (against Boston). He took a couple hard plays to the ice."

    Meanwhile, Lecavalier, who has three goals and six assists on the season, broke his right hand in the first period of Thursday night's 6-3 loss at Washington. Tampa Bay's captain is expected to miss three to four weeks.

    "He played for a long time with it because he didn't want to come off. He's a warrior, this guy. I'm impressed," Lightning coach Guy Boucher said.

    Lecavalier's absence could make the Penguins' task easier as they try to avoid their second three-game losing skid at their new home arena. They are 5-3-1 in road games but only 2-5-0 in Pittsburgh, where they've yielded at least one power-play goal in five straight contests.

    Four of their next five games are at home, with the exception a contest Saturday night at Atlanta.

    "We have a task of playing Friday and Saturday. We have a lot of games coming up here," Bylsma said. "We need to keep getting games from our players as we have been, in terms of being all in."

    The Penguins (7-8-1) will likely need a top-caliber effort against the Lightning (8-5-2), who have won nine of their last 12 visits to Pittsburgh. They also beat the Penguins 5-3 at home Oct. 27, when Martin St. Louis had two goals and an assist.

    St. Louis has 38 points (16 goals, 22 assists) in 38 career games versus Pittsburgh.

    Thursday's loss was the fourth in five games overall for Tampa Bay, which outshot the Capitals 41-26 but gave up four goals in the third period.

    Steven Stamkos scored his NHL-leading 14th goal in the defeat. Teddy Purcell and Ryan Malone also scored for the Lightning.

    "We had chances to win the game," Stamkos said. "We didn't bury opportunities. ... They come down and score. That's the way it goes sometimes."

    Stamkos, who has four goals in his last three games, recorded three assists in the last meeting with Pittsburgh.

    Dan Ellis made 20 saves Thursday night but allowed a season-high five goals as he fell to 4-3-2 on the season.

    Ellis was credited with the win when these two teams met last month after he replaced Mike Smith, who allowed three first-period goals. Ellis held the Penguins scoreless for the remainder of the game.

    Winger Steve Downie missed Thursday's loss to Washington with a back injury and is not expected to be available Friday night.
