NOTES

Well you've read about the changes in the lines, the return of Gary Roberts and everything else the Pens have to do to avoid another embarrassing shutout loss.  Tonight, they'll try and put these alterations to the test in hopes of splitting the series in Detroit and returning home to the eagerly awaiting Pittsburgh crowd.

"It's not like we haven't seen Crosby and Malkin before," said Kris Draper, the veteran Red Wings forward. "We've seen them every night on TV, in the highlights. They're on over and over. When you're watching them, you know you're talking about the future of the game."

He did say future.

"I didn't say present," said Draper with a veteran smile.

Buh-zing.

Over 13,000 bodies filled the seats of Mellon Arena the other night to watch the game on the jumbotron, and staff and personnel are expecting the same turnout for tonight's game.  When the Penguins return home for 3 and 4, the team will once again return with the outdoor screen that the fan base has become so accustomed to.

It looks like Johan Franzen still has a case of the Lindros, as he will sit again tonight in the wake of concussion-like symptoms.  Or will he?  The Trib-Review is saying he'll play, the Post-Gazette (Empty Netters) is saying they received word he won't. 

I trust no one and will wait till the puck drops.

Laraque sits.

Roberts plays.

Chelios?
