The Pen is Mightier?

New, comments

 

Who: Toronto Maple Leafs (6-2-1; 13 points; 1st in Northeast) vs Pittsburgh Penguins (8-2-2; 18 points; 1st in Atlantic)

What: Game #10 of the 2011-12 Regular Season

Where: Air Canada Centre, T-Dot

When: 7:00pm on CBC

The Penguins are still without captain Sidney Crosby, and now face a strong-ish Leafs squad without one of their best defenders, Zbynek Michalek.  The good news is Evgeni Malkin returned to the Pens lineup last week and James Neal remains one of the league's top scorers in October.

They'll be going up against a Leafs squad missing goaltender James Reimer, pretty much the last player they could afford an injury to.  Jonas Gustavsson has been OK in Reimer's absence, and hopefully has one more decent game in him before Reimer returns (hopefully) tomorrow in Ottawa.  Up front, the only major injury for Toronto is to RW Colby Armstrong, as Tim Connolly and Tyler Bozak both returned to active duty on Thursday against the Rangers.

Also, the Leafs have Phil Kessel.
