Pre-Game Notes: Pittsburgh VS Toronto – the Sequel
ROOT SPORTS – PITTSBURGH
FACE-OFF IS SET FOR 7:30 PM (EST)
Not much to “note” today since this will be the second of back-to-back games for the two teams and the Pens had to travel to Toronto late last night after the game which went into an extra OT period and shootout leading the Pens to the win.
Also not sure who Bylsma will decide to have start in goal since Fleury gave such an amazing performance last night although he has been reported as saying that we’ll be seeing more of Johnson in net this month, so we shall see — my guess is that he’ll keep his word, give Fleury a rest and start Johnson.
Pens fans can only hope for another exciting game tonight and a “sweep” of the Maple Leafs!
