Pens Gameday; Let's keep the goose egg going...

Might as well keep a good thing going, ya know ??

The Pens visit Philly tonight in search of their 7th straight win against the Flyers without a loss.

That in itself is such a remarkable statistic, considering the Pens' absolutely horrendous record in Philly over the last 15 years.

The Flyers might be dragging a little tonight, especially early on, since they played (and got shutout) against the Islanders last night.

It's because of that we may see Esche tonight instead of Nittimakki as well.

The Flyers gameplan, you may be asking ?

Let's see if we've heard this one before; Hammer Crosby everytime he touches the puck.

Well, it's a good thing that the Pens are very used to this type of physical play.

And it's even better that they've adapted a retaliatory attitude themselves, 'cause tonight they'll be sure to get plenty of practice.

Earlier in the year, this post would have been filled with sayings like "trap game" and "letdown".

But I really think the Pens are extremely focused now as they realize that they're in a prime playoff position, and they can't afford to blow two points because they took the night off against Philly.
