All of us may have not yet gotten over the debacle that was Game 2 Friday night, but Game 3 is here and it's going to be a big one (that's what she said). Well good news since 2008 the Penguins are 9-1 in game 3's and MAF is 11-4 since the 2007-2008 post season following a loss, there are some other interesting game 3 facts to get you ready here. The Penguins will likely show the same lines they have the previous two games with the emphasis on the top 2 defensive units.

The Lightning will look to change very little from last game except avoid Brooks Orpik at all costs because we're pretty sure Stamkos doesn't want to meet the boards the way he did in Game 1 again and that dude Oprik put through the cross bar in Game 2 probably doesn't want to experience the pain of almost being broken in half again. On a more serious note on three Tampa players and back-up goaltender Mike Smith showed up for the optional morning skate this morning where as everyone but 4 of the Penguins used the optional skate this morning. It kind of sounds like someone thinks they are too good to practice before a big game, hopefully this come back to bite them in the ass. Game starts at 7:30ish tonight.

Let's Do This.
