apparently Zigomanis has been cleared to play: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/rumors/p...urn=nhl,167731

I'm guessing he won't play tonight but it will be tempting to dress him for defensive zone faceoffs (he is the best at faceoffs in the NHL)

I'd like to see Staal's line step up and contribute a goal or 2. Don't get me wrong, Staal has been playing great defensively but it's time to step up and score some goals
I'm not sure how your equating "blame" with needs to improve, or is not at the top of his game. He has given up some soft goals. He probably would admit to that himself. The Flower has big time talent. I just hate to see Osgood get the better of the comparison.

As far as Gill, we've heard this song before. Personally, I appreciate the fact that he isn't puck gazing and stands the guy up and attempts to run him to the boards. It's a more "physical" approach contrasting some of the guys who are more comfortable poke checking the puck. He isn't a great stick handler or skater, but those are not the strengths of his game, and he knows that. Something you should too.

I will agree that I would like to see Staal's line, Staal imparticular, get some more points, but hey, let's be realistic, I'd like to see more points from the entire team, because the object, of course, is to get more than the opponent. Maddenism

Let's Go Pen's!

1 down, 3 to go.

Talk about premature. Claiming victory for the Wings already.

Game 3 was a great game, but it's all wasted if the Pens don't win tonight. They're still down and can't afford a split in Pittsburgh. Especially with Datsyuk returning for Detroit.

Tonight is as big a must win as any. Win, it's a brand new best of 3 series. Lose, and you're in a 3-1 hole. The Pens rallied from a 2-0 deficit in these playoffs before. Let's see if they can do it again. Let's see how badly they want this cup.
