2. What previous opponent fanblogs said:

St. Louis Gametime on 3-0 win on November 12:

The Blues played the same type of puck possession game they played in the Cock's first game against Chicago. They limited the Lightning's quality offensive chances and controlled large chunks of the game by winning puck battles and making smart passes with the puck. It sure didn't look like Tampa had many opportunities to set up their now-infamous 1-3-1 defensive trap because the Blues attacked quickly and with speed out of their defensive zone.The Blues played the same type of puck possession game they played in the Cock's first game against Chicago.

3. Player that will piss you off.

Dominic Moore.

Favorite stat ever: In his entire career against the Pens, Moore has a surprisingly low 5 points in 18 regular-season games. But in last year's playoffs, he had 5 points in 7 games and had the GW assist in Game 7. He also scored a huge goal for the Habs in Game 7 two years ago against the Pens. Fuck off.

4. Player that will score.

Like you even had to ask. Marty St. Louis lives to kill the Pens.

Get ready for the 1-3-1. Hope Malkin puts Roloson in the hospital. sn,saksmms

Go Pens.
