Thank you, NBC, for the 2PM Sunday start.
You'll have to get your lucky burritos early today.
Also, remember that there will be no big screen.
Tailgate on the Terrace is also cancelled.
Traffic downtown will likely be a nightmare.
 
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.
 
An update from the Penguins website on Kennedy and Leopold:

"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."

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.
 
 
Do it.
 

Go Pens.
