Penguins Lead Series 1-0
Listen to the game at [WXDX
Thank you, NBC, for the 2PM Sunday start.
Game two against the Habs.
Our chance to put them in a hole before we head to Montreal.
Splitting the series 1-1 in Pittsburgh would be considered a victory for them.
It would be bad news for us.
"Although both players were optimistic about how they are progressing, neither was willing to give a timetable on when they will return to the lineup. Kennedy said his return is dependent on getting himself into game shape while Leopold has to see how he responds to live hitting."
Obviously, Staal will be out for the Pens.
Proposed Canadiens line combinations:
– Tomas Plekanec
– Andrei Kostitsyn
Travis Moen – Scott Gomez – Brian Gionta
– Dominic Moore – Maxim Lapierre
– Glen Metropolit
– Mathieu Darche
P.K. Subban – Ryan O'Byrne
Hal Gill – Josh Gorges
Roman Hamrlik – Marc-Andre Bergeron
Proposed Penguins line combinations:

The lines are a guessing game with the number of people that missed practice.
There's a new Canadian Gatorade commercial with Sidney Crosby:
The injury situation isn't great.
Matt Cooke is the only remaining member of the Sesame Street line still in the line-up.
Kunitz didn't practice, so he may still be hurting.
We need veteran leadership to get us through this time.
