The Penguins will face-off tonight in Pittsburgh against the Ottowa Senators. Tonight it is not just Pens vs. Sens. Two brothers will play against each other tonight. No. Jared Staal/Stall, Stahl, Stoll is not playing for Ottowa.
Tonight, Zybnek Michalek will play against brother Milan. Milan is currently fourth among all forwards in votes for the 2012 All Star Game. (Also in the top standings from Ottowa are Jason Spezza, Daniel Alfredsson and Erik Karlsson. Yeesh.)
The Penguins are currently in first place in the East, the Senators in 11th. However, Karlsson will be someone to watch. He is second in the league behind Phil Kessel (I shake my fist at you Kessel) in assists with 17 on the season. Michalek #2 is right below James Neal in goals with 12.
Pens will also face former Penguin and Stanley Cup champ, defenseman Sergei Gonchar. Geno’s best buddy is having quite a good season so far with 2 goals and 12 assists.
We are at yet another night with Sidney Crosby, Evegeni Malkin and Jordan Staal.
Fleury in goal tonight.
Let’s take a look at some highlights of the Pens vs Sens Playoff run from 2008 to get the night started.
Also, read this feature on Geno from Pittsburgh Magazine. It’s amazing.
