Game Day Playoff Edition vs. Lightning 4-15-11

by: The PensNation Staff

Penguins Game Day

If game 2 tonight is anything like Wednesday's game it will be another classic. Defensively the Pens should be the same as they were with a heavy dose of Letang, Orpik, Michalek, and Martin while Lovejoy and Niskanen play around 10 minutes each. This may change depending on how the game unfolds, if the Pens jump to an early lead we would expect to maybe see more of a balance between the 3 defensive pairings, but if this is another close one expect the minutes to pile up for the top 4. The offensive lines will likely look the same as they did the other night, don't expect much change here as long as the Pens are winning. The lines at practice today were Neal-Letestu-Kovalev, Kunitz-Staal-Kennedy, Dupuis-Talbot-Conner, Rupp-Adams-Asham with Comrie and Godard practicing with Sid.

The Lightning will likely come with a different game plan, we are guessing that they will stick with Old Man Roloson in net so if he has to face a lot of shots early look for him to tire down. Steven Stamkos whom was nowhere to be found Wednesday will be looking to bounce back and prove he is not a fluke come playoff time. Look for Marty St. Louis to be a little chippy after he had to have a double root canal yesterday because he fell into Michalek's stick.
