With the senators in control of this series this is a very important game. If the pens lose today they will be down 3-1 and have no chance to comeback. It is a desperate situation for the pens. It worrys me that during the moring skate the pens looked so relaxed. Maybe it is a tactic that Therrien is using so the pens do not have to think about the pressure they face. The game will be determined by the play of Marc-Andre Fleury. When he plays good the penguins play good. Tonight it is being reported that Erik Christensen will be replaced in the lineup by Nils Ekman. Christensen who has played in all three games has zero points is a minus-one. Christensen also has six penalty minutes with five shots and winning only forty percent of his faceoffs. I think that this is good move by Therrien. This will make all the players relize that they are not locks on this team. It also makes sense because Ekman is a stronger defensemen than Christensen and that is what they have missed. I really do believe that if they get close to thirty shots on goal they can score four or more goals. Emery is a shakey goaltender who in my opinion has not been tested this series. Also the defense has to block shots to take the loak off Fleury. The Senators are avering 33 shots a game while the pens are averging only twenty two. For the Penguins it is now time to truly Experience The Evolution.
