Kunitz is shifted away from Malkin.
Then again Sullivan is going with Fleury for a third straight game. I don't get it, Murray has one bad/off game and he gets the short end. Fleury, who has been good, not great the past two games can have a slew of bad games but has the coaches confidence.
Hope for the best I guess.

Penguins projected lineup

Conor Sheary -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Carl Hagelin -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Chris Kunitz -- Nick Bonino -- Bryan Rust

Scott Wilson -- Matt Cullen -- Eric Fehr

Brian Dumoulin -- Kris Letang

Olli Maatta -- Trevor Daley

Ian Cole -- Justin Schultz

Marc-Andre Fleury

Matt Murray

Scratched: Steve Oleksy, Jake Guentzel, Tom Kuhnhackl

Injured: Derrick Pouliot (lower body)

I'm about ready to go off on this MAF hot hand nonsense. MM deserves to get treated like a starter yet they keep fucking him over

I will stop supporting this team if MAF is the goalie past the new year. This makes no fucking sense.

The Penguins will have to score another 3+ goals in this one to have a chance.

The guy went winless the entire MONTH of November. Really helps this team! Great locker room guy!

Only explanation I can think of: Flower has been much better at home. Maybe they're saving Murray for both games on the upcoming Florida trip?

This is what I was saying earlier. If you're using Flower to keep Murray fresh, then for godsakes use Fleury at home, where he's pretty good.

Ottawa ranked 27th in goals/game coming into this one. They have two in the first.

#ROOTretards talking about how the Penguins are flying offensively. Seem to be ignoring the fact that the game is 2-2.

It is a wonder how the Pens are scoring the way they are with this lame PP.

If the idea was to save Murray for road trip then he will go 8 days without action. That is too long to sit our best tender. And I'll wager Fleury gets one start this weekend.

Can't blame Fleury on the first one but the second goal...

Fourth line was quiet and I don't expect a whole lot from the third line at the moment.

Crosby has another goal in him and Malkin is going to score as well tonight.

Sometimes you have to make huge saves to keep your team in it. Fleury could have made that save on the first goal.

The second goal was his fault about three times over. Huge rebound, misplayed the puck for about the 102,201,020 time in his career, then let in (another) five-hole goal.

WHY WAS FLEURY FLOPPING ON THE ICE TRYING TO SAVE THAT? He fell over.

PRAISE ALLAH!

Crazy game.
Kessel with the long range shot that hit the target.

Is Schultz are best defense men right now?

I'm actually here at the game, and MAF is just bad. Maata looks like he's completely lost, and to be honest, there has been some miscommunication between our D. But MAF has to make some saves wtf. Anyway, it's a barn burner..my kids, wife and I are having a blast with all of the scoring.

Thank you! My wife was gifted 4 tickets through her work in the Captain Morgan club 8-) this is about as close to late 80s, early 90s Pens hockey that I've seen in a long time. What a blast!

Better replace the goal lamps!

That was bonkers. Kessel's snap shot is so deadly. I don't know how he can create that much torque on a snap shot.

So who had the best goal?

Talk about a great game to go to- all kinds of action!

I hate rooting for players to fail, but hopefully this game is what finally convinces this team to take MAF out back and shoot him. He's done.
