Know the Enemy:
The road trip hasn't been going all that well so far.
A game in Tampa Bay is a good chance to get back on the winning track, unless the Pens are looking past this game to the Devils and Bruins games coming up.

Ryan Malone will not play today.
We heard a rumor that he has an upper body injury from carrying his wallet for too long.
Antero Niittymaki will be in net for the "Bolts":

Vincent Lecavalier and Martin St. Louis were not happy about Matt Cooke's hit on Marc Savard:

"He's got no respect for the players," said Tampa Bay Lightning captain Vincent Lecavalier.  "Matt Cooke, he's been doing that for a long time."

"He knew exactly what he was doing when he came with his shoulder," Lecavalier stated.  "He knew exactly that he was going to hit his head and that's how guys get hurt."

"There are certain players in this league, that you tend to see on the highlights with hits like that," said St. Louis.  "I don't think it's a coincidence that it was given by Matt Cooke.  He's a hard working player, I don't want to take anything away from the way he plays the game but I think that there are times when guys are vulnerable and he still follows through.  If that hit is not a suspension, I don't know what is."

Steven Stamkos has been on fire recently.
He's fifth in scoring with 42 goals and 38 assists.
Many credit his success this season to training with Gary Roberts in the summer.
John Stamos was unavailable for comment.
Have mercy.

Do it.

Go Pens.
