Henrik Lundqvist was in net last night for the 3-1 win over Columbus.  Whether we see him for the second half of a back-to-back is uncertain.  Even if we don't, backup Stephen Valiquette is entirely capable of keeping a lockdown on net.  So far this season he is 2-0, very similar to Michael Leighton from Carolina the other night.  If that's the case then hopefully the Penguins will treat him the same way.

Brandon Dubinsky should garner more attention than last season.  He's apparently really stepping up his game and I'd really hate to see him get the best of the Pens. 

I have a bad feeling the Rangers will get a lot of shots on net tonight.  I know - given the Penguins' streak with giving up shots this season it's not exactly like I'm looking into a crystal ball or anything.

If Colton Orr is in the lineup tonight, I see him + fistacuffs against either Godard or Bissonnette.  I'd say we'll see a fight tonight regardless.
