The opportunity for retribution comes quick for the Pittsburgh Penguins as the the Rangers stroll in to town. Make no mistake about it, the Penguins will be up for this one.

1. Dan Boyle – It was just one game, I know – but he changed the whole dynamic of the offense when he was on the ice. If we’re lucky the Pens might get undisciplined and put the Rangers are the PP often.

2. Derick Brassard – His speed and shot will give the Penguins fits. Feeling a multi-point game for Brass.

3. Tanner Glass – He plastered the Penguins at the Garden with 6 hits and set the tone early. Tonight, he and Downie will square off early if he’s laying the body the same way. I think Glass wants to make a statement to the fans in Pittsburgh.

1. Sidney Crosby – Yes, he’s here again at the top of the list. Yes, again I don’t need to explain this.

2. Evgeni Malkin – Patric Hornqvist was moved to his line and that should get the big guy going.

3. Marc-Andre Fleury – Feast or famine against the Rangers with MAF.




The forecast is now at 8-8 after losing in OT to the Avs.

There will be no blowout tonight. I’m thinking serious nail-biter though. NY has Pittsburgh’s number and it should continue tonight.
