"Itís great to be starting," he said following morning skate. "I wasnít sure after the game if they were going to come back to (Marc-Andre Fleury) or not. Iím trying not to get too caught up in that. If the coaches tell me Iím playing, Iím playing. If Iím not playing, Iím going to try and help the team other ways to win the game. For me, itís just trying to keep it even keel and not get too excited about stuff. The only thing that matter is if we get the W at the end. I think that goes for all the guys, here."

Vokoun said he still has nerves, though they have improved slightly from the last series. But there's still hours until the puck drops and he will be ready to play come 7:30 p.m.

"Itís a little bit better," he said. "But itís a long way from the game yet. When youíre on the ice, youíre not thinking about stuff like that. Itís not so bad right now."

I was hoping that they would stick with Vokoun. If he starts struggling, then I support a change back to MAF. I just don't want Dan taking too long to make the decision again.

Killer, text Dan with your suggested lines for tonight.

I think it's good that we're starting Vokoun over Fleury, kinda sends that message that getting his job back won't be easy and when he does play, he needs to play better to keep his job

I've already turned in my line-ups

Dupuis-Crosby-Iginla
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke
Adams-Vitale-Kennedy

Phil and I give it 2 thumbs up. Though I kind of miss having Juicy out there. Dupuis has been a mad man lately.

I think a non-shutout is better for the Pens... especially in game 1. I think the 5-0 game 1 against the Islanders made the Pens underestimate them. There have been some great opportunities for the Sens and I think that one of them getting in the net will let the Pens know Ottawa CAN score and won't just roll over for them.
