Penguins lines at the morning skate:

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

Looks like I may get my wish and Glass is out.  Don't like taking Jokinen out of the line-up though, although Vitale is at least his equal on face-offs.

Also, Depres is apparently skating with Letang.  that is either going to be a genius move or a fucking disaster.  Something had to be done though, as Eaton cannot skate with these guys anymore.  Eaton has looked horrible since game 1.

No worries.  The NFL playoffs haven't even started yet.  I know, I watch ESPN.  They must start after the NBA postseason wraps.

Much better effort all around. As for the goaltending, i don't have any interest in the chicken/egg or cart/horse questions. Start Vokoun til he loses.

Yep, line-up changes and adjustments seemed to make a huge difference.  Also nice to see Depres getting 14:10 of ice time.  Martin and Letang were playing 30+ every game this series and were down to the mid twenties last night.  He's easily the 3rd most talented defenseman on the roster, I don't care if he's green, play him.

I'd take it a step further and play Vokoun until he loses consecutive games. 

Close this shit out Saturday.  I want no part of a game 7.  Game 7's and AFC championships at home have not been kind to us over the years.

It's funny how all the penguins numbers (possession, SOG, etc.) improve when the islanders actually have to, you know, work for scoring chances rather than blindly throwing pucks at the net which become goals due to a fucking spaz goaltender.

Feels good to win.  Not a pretty series; obviously we did not get the memo that neutral zone and board battles win in the playoffs.  Hopefully we got it now, and decide to play hard all the time and not just when we feel like it.

Let's just start an NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs - Round 2 - Penguins vs. Senators thread and be done with this one please.  Time to forget this mess (as a fan), but I hope the Pens players remember it REAL well!

Done. Should we just lock this one?
