Neal did not practice today. Jokinen appears to have taken full participation, so that's great news. Orpik skated with Engellend as the 3rd pair, so maybe he's close, who knows.

Neal was limping coming out of practice - one report said it was "noticeable," another said it was "minor." I guess we'll know how badly he's injured when he either plays his next game or the playoffs end. F'n hockey coaches - if they ever get tired of coaching hockey the NSA would probably love to hire them.

Crosby was back at practice between kunitz and dupuis today and Orpik skated on a third pair

What I'm most impressed about with the win last night is the defense was good enough for the following to be a headline at Yahoo! Sports:

"Physical Penguins defense rattles Islanders"

When was the last time you read about the Pens defense being physical in the playoffs? I can picture these headlines regarding the teams D from recent playoffs:

09-10: "Gonchar chicken wing not enough as Pens fall to Habs in Game 7"
10-11: "Pens have chance to advance - give up 8 to Bolt's"
11-12: "Orpik catches wife having cheating several times - twice in one day - and is a poor excuse for hockey player in 8-goal debacle"

Such a great thing to see, a Penguins defense playing well!

If you are subscribed to this thread as well as the other "team talk" threads, I apologize in advance for the repetition:

I hope the Rags beat the Caps in 7 games and every game goes triple overtime.

I hope the Sens beat the Habs because if the Pens get by the Isles I want the Sens next.

Uncanny! Great minds thinking alike again!

I dislike the Rgas and the Caps, but I want to Caps to lose more so their bandwagon fans shut up.

I live 65 miles from Montreal, so I have Habs fans running their mouths all the time. Want them to lose strictly for that reason! Only upside to the Habs winning would be easy access to a game if they both the Pens + Habs make the East Final.

I feel for you there - I was living in Baltimore when the Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2000.

Easy access, but expensive!

Ha, at least you can pick a side to cheer against!

Living in Ottawa, I hear Sens fans BS daily, but I still have a hatrid for the Canadiens (and, of course, their fans ).

Oh well. I'm just hoping whoever wins this series wins it in seven, then gets swept in round two .

You must live in or around Plattsburgh, used to have a friend who lived there when we were in school up in Burlington Vt. It was about an 1:15 from his parents house to the old Forum, used to get the standing room tickets behind the goal!!

Haha, yep! Plattsburgh it is! Yeah it's a nice easy trip to MTL, just gotta hope the border isn't a pain, which it often is.

Crosby skated on 1st line w/ Dupuis and Kunitz during the morning skate. Maybe he plays tonight.

Nice way to star the game. 43 seconds into the game. Nabokov might be rattled already. That place is loud.

Did Gord Miller on TSN get into the Krazy Glue tonight? The guy is yelling through the whole game, it's unbearable to listen to.

CROSBY IS SKATING DOWNICE!
THE PUCK IS BEHIND THE NET!
OFFSIDE!

LAY OFF THE CRACK GORD, YOU ARE GIVING THE VIEWERS A HEADACHE.
