It goes without saying, but I’ll say it anyway: This game is pretty Byfuglien pivotal. Home ice. No Crosby or Malkin. It’s time to make hay.
Eminger back in the lineup. Del Zotto prucha’d. Godard to begin serving his automatic 10-game suspension for coming off the bench during the Pens’ brouhaha against the Islanders.
Play nice and enjoy the game. I’ll put up the postgame notes later, then hand the keys back to Carp.
