If you picked up on anything from the first two periods it was that James Neal was determined to put one in the net, finally he did. So because of that you get the return of:
Who: Pittsburgh Penguins (8-2-2) vs. Toronto Maple Leafs (6-2-1)
Where: Air Canada Centre
When: 7:00 EST
Channels: CBC, ROOT Sports
The Maple Leafs are the leagues most valuable franchise. Recently though they have been one of the worst. That appears to have changed though in the early going as they have a pretty impressive 6-2-1 record.
The Guins’ split the series with the Leafs, taking two out of four, and coming away with five points.
Ben Lovejoy had a point in three of the four games for the Pens last season! I needed to say that so I could do this.
Your goal scorers were Chris Kunitz (1), Max Talbot (2), Sidney Crosby (3), Pascal Dupuis (1), Mark Letestu (3), Alexei Kovalev (1), Dustin Jeffrey (1), Mike Rupp (1), Matt Niskanen (1), Chris Conner (1).
Watch out for Mark Letestu in this one, he really needs a breakout game and has had some success against the Leafs.
Deryk Engelland vs. Colton Orr
Deryk Engelland vs. Colton Orr – Rematch
Dare I say epic?
Arron Asham vs. Mike Komisarek
Eric Godard vs. Jay Rosehill
Rosehill deserved that
Mike Rupp vs. Jay Rosehill
With guys like Colton Orr, Jay Rosehill, and Colby Armstrong around I can’t imagine there won’t be some fireworks tonight. In fact I hope their is.
