The Flyers

The Pens will play the Flyers on the road today at 1 p.m. on FSN Pittsburgh. Obviously we don't have to keep telling you that every game is a huge game but this is a huge game. It's not only big because the Pens need as many points as possible so they can climb up in the standings, but Philly is a HUGE rival so emotions should be high. If the Pens don't come out ready for this game, they have more problems than we thought. The Flyers are 17-7-3 at home this season and are fourth in the Eastern Conference. They are also coming into this game on a three-game winning streak. The Pens should have their hands full playing a physical game against the Flyers, but if they play the way they did in the third period against the Canadiens (minus the poor defense) they have a good chance of winning this game. Although it won't get any easier going into Washington the next day after a draining game against Philly.

Penguins Notebook: Bylsma wants more from Letang  Coach Bylsma wasn't happy with Letang's play against the Islanders and wants more from him in practice. He said he has spoke to Letang about this and that there is no ill will between them. Bylsma says he is a very talented player but he needs to continue to work and get better every day. We're just glad he's not going anywhere.
