Pens - Sens

Think the Pens are as confident as their fans?

From Igloo Dreams:
Here's a radical idea for tonight: Put the Sens on the power play early and often. Their power play so far this year has been quite poor, even more so lately. During their current 5 game losing streak, they are just 2-29 on the power play. To strengthen this (admittedly ludicrious) case further, the Sens have allowed 5 shorties (they only have 7 goals on the power play all year) and the Pens have scored 4 shorties. I beat the heck out of Spezza, Alfredsson and Heatley, take some early minor penalties, and then deploy two PK units, one with Moore and Talbot and the other with Staal and Armstrong. For extra offense, you mix in Crosby and Malkin once in awhile. Should be a blowout!

I'm sure this is a bit tongue in cheek but can't say I'll be hoping Ottawa goes on the PP.

Gerber is in net for the Sens again. This seemed a strange thing to read:
Hindsight is 20/20, but Gerber told Murray he probably should have left the game after getting stunned with a shot off the neck from Atlanta's Scott Mellanby early in the third.
Throwing in Kelly Guard against possibly the best offence in the league would have been better?
