Game Day Pens vs Rangers 1/5/09

by: The PensNation Staff

Sidney Crosby


The Penguins goto Madison Square Garden tonight to take on the Rangers @ 7:00pm. The big question coming into tonights game is whether or not the Penguins will show up to play for the whole 60 minutes, not only have the Penguins struggled as of late but they have given up 3rd period leads against the Rangers in the previous two meetings in the MSG. Another question coming into tonights game is how will the Penguins rebound from that horrific spanking they received at the hands of the Florida Panthers. Coach Michel Therrien shook up the lines for the game tonight.


Forwards
Kennedy-Crosby-Dupuis
Fedotenko-Malkin-Sykora
Talbot-Staal-Cooke
Wallace-Jeffrey-Satan

Defense
Orpik-Whitney
Scuderi-Letang
Eaton-Boucher

Netminder
Fleury


The only problems I see with the lines are the defensive pairings with Eaton and Boucher playing and scratching Go-Go and U.S.S Hal Gill. WHY??? The Waterboy and Eaton have done absolutely nothing this season, and Goligoski and Gill are much better than these two will ever be. I can't really sum Boucher any better than he sucks and the only reason we have heard Eaton's name the past two years is because he been on IR for the better part of the 2 and hasn't showed much of anything this year so far.


Ok so getting off the subject of the game tonight I came across this gem of an article on FoxSports written by some joke journalist about Crosby's fight during the Panthers game on Saturday. Hey we get it yinz are all upset you didn't win the lottery to get him on your team and as for the fight I really could care less I personally think it was a long time coming with they way the other players try and take cheap shots at Sid.
