Word around the Penguins camp today suggests that although Gary Roberts didn't skate with the team this weekend he'll be good to go for game one, round two. This makes the sweep all the better, and these seven games series even more appetizing for the injured Roberts. Pittsburgh may find out tonight for sure who their first round opponent is, should Boston take down Montreal in game seven. Should Montreal win, the Penguins will have to wait on the results of the Philly/Washington game. If Montreal wins AND Philly wins it draws New York in round two.
I could keep going with the whole prospect thing, but I think I've beaten that down to no end. I'll choose to go with the wait and see approach now. Also worth mentioning : Mark Eaton may be healthy and ready to play if (when) the Penguins move onto the next round. His crucial shot blocking would add a huge boost to an already dominant defensive core powered by the likes of Brooks Orpik and once skeptical but now solidified trade deadline acquisition Hal Gill.
