These are your keys to tonight's game. 1)Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Jarome Iginla, Pascal Dupuis, Paul Martin and Kris Letang all averaged at least 1 point per game in round 1.

The special teams are looking extra-special! 3)The penalty kill is so special that they've only allowed 2 goals out of 26 during the playoffs. Don't let them take advantage of the man-advantage! Another way to fight that is to stay outta the box! I'm in a Motley Crue kind of mood today so let's see lots of Goals, Goals, Goals tonight! Let's Go Pens!!!
