Jordan Staal expects to play in this one! Pens are getting healthy, just in time to make a run at a decent playoff spot. It’s amazing that after the run they had they currently sit in fourth place.
Anyway, the Pens have split the series against the Jets 1-1. In fact in each game the losing team has been held to just one goal.
Last time out it was the Pens turn to win after scoring three goals in the third period. This one was actually tied at one before that, but James Neal started off the third with a bang with Jordan Staal and Pascal Dupuis adding the next two. Joe Vitale scored the opening goal of the game.
Marc-Andre Fleury only faced 19 shots in this one, and easy considering the Pens put 39 shots on net.
Arron Asham vs. Tanner Glass
Pretty spirited fight…..
