Game Day Penguins vs Capitals 1/14/09

by: The PensNation Staff

Sidney Crosby, Alex Goligoski, and Miroslav Satan Celebrate

The Pens take on the Caps tonight inside the confines of Mellon Arena, at this point I can't really say if they are friendly or not since the Pens haven't been doing so well there as of late. There are a couple big questions going into tonights game like will Obitchkin take another run a Malkin, what will transpire between Crosby and Semin being this is the first time the teams have met since Semin made the remarks about Sid. The biggest question I have for tonights game is can the Penguins piece together back-to-back wins for the first time since mid November. Only time will tell. Here is the projected line matchups for tonights game.

Forwards
Cooke-Crosby-Malkin
Minard-Staal-Sykora
Kennedy-Talbot-Satan
Bissonnette-Jeffrey-Godard

Defense
Orpik-Whitney
Letang-Scuderi
Goligoski-Gill

Netminder
Fleury

Malkin, Ovechkin, Crosby, and Semin

There are always comparisons, there are always buildups when these teams play each other. That’s something I think we’ve learned to deal with. If there’s a little bit bigger stage hopefully that brings the best of everyone but I don’t think that changes the way you play. - Sidney Crosby
