Who woulda thought the matchup would have been Brian Boucher vs. Brent Johnson? Who also would have thought it would have been such a low scoring affair? And last but not least who would have thought that Craig Adams, Arron Asham, and Pascal Dupuis would have been your three goal scorers? Not this guy, but hey, hockey is a funny sport.
Johnson actually looked pretty good, sweeping the leg with ease this time.

Big challenge for the Penguins coming up as they face the defending Stanley Cup champions! The Bruins have been very good, leading the league in point differential with a +34 and having just three fewer points than the Pens in three fewer games.
The Pens split the season series with the Bruins last year, but the Bruins were able to get one more point due to one of their two losses being in overtime.
Your goal scorers last year were Arron Asham (1), Brooks Orpik (1), Chris Kunitz (2), Sidney Crosby (1), Mike Rupp (1), Kris Letang (1), Pascal Dupuis (1), Jordan Staal (2), Dustin Jeffrey (2).
Eric Godard vs. Shawn Thornton
Nice scrap there. Loved Godard, guy was just a warrior.
Max Talbot vs. Gregory Campbell
Another nice fight from the same game. No word on if Campbell got herpes from touching Talbot.
Arron Asham vs. Adam McQuaid
Again from the same game. It would be hard to top the first two, but man Asham and McQuaid did. Arron Asham seems to always fight against guy who are half a foot taller or more.
Somehow there were no fights in the second game. But in the third there was one.
Craig Adams vs. Gregory Campbell
A valiant effort by Adams, but a clear win by Campbell
And then in the fourth game.
Mike Rupp vs. Shawn Thornton
Big Rupp wins one clean!
Craig Adams vs. Nathan Horton
I would love to know what actually happened but neither feed showed it.
