Click Here Wednesday (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports, NHL.TV). Here’s my breakdown of the game:
Pluses: Overall the goaltending has been good. Matt Murray has had a great season (26-8-3, 2.33 goals-against average, .925 save percentage, four shutouts). But let’s not forget about Marc-Andre Fleury. He wasn’t dealt at the NHL Trade Deadline and was excellent while making 40 saves in a 3-2 shootout win against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday, which followed a 28-save shutout against the Buffalo Sabres on March 5. They’ve been a great 1-2 punch, and the Penguins are
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap lucky to have two No. 1 goalies. Fleury (374 victories) is tied with John Vanbiesbrouck for 15th on the NHL’s all-time wins list.
Next is the play of the superstars. Sidney Crosby has been amazing, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel have been awesome. Each of the three can dish it off as
Website well as score. The fact that they can score or pass makes it hard for other teams to defend them, and having that many weapons is a huge plus.
Their defense used to be a problem, but now it’s turned into a strength. They acquired Ron Hainsey andMark Streit (who was injured on Monday and could miss this game) before the NHL Trade Deadline, but let’s not forget about Justin Schultz, who’s having his best offensive season with 46 points (12 goals, 34 assists) and is plus-30.
Minuses: The Penguins have dealt with a lot of injuries. Trevor Daley was great prior to getting injured. The same can be said for workhorse Kris Letang. And now Streit could be out for some time after getting injured on Monday.
After last season’s playoff run, plus the World Cup of Hockey 2016, a lot of players on the team have played a lot of hockey in the past year or two. The Penguins look like they are in for another deep run and that could mean playing more
Buy Now than 100 games (regular season and playoffs) in each of the past two seasons.
If the game gets to be physical, the Penguins may have trouble. We all know they rely on their speed, which they excel at, but clearly the Flyers are more physical.
