There were only three goals that were scored in Game 1 of this series, and they all were scored by the visitors. One would think that this could be another low scoring game, but we aren’t all that sure. G Marc-Andre Fleury is waiting in the wings right now, knowing that G Tomas Vokoun struggled so badly in Game 1. The opportunities for goals are going to be there for the Pens at some point, and when those opportunities come, they tend to score goals in bunches. The Penguins haven’t won a game here in the playoffs in which they have scored fewer than four goals. If you’re a believer that Pittsburgh is going to get back on track and win this game, you have to think that it is going to score at least four goals in doing so. We have a really good feeling that this is going to be one of those 4-3 or 5-4 games that ultimately could go either way when push comes to shove. The ‘over’ is the right play in Game 2, as the opportunities will be capitalized on early and often.
