This team is so bland, I tried to answer your question as to who was scratched, and couldn't figure it out.

It was Chiasson.

Oh, yes, I had forgotten him, although I think he showed some good things in the previous game. But they had to scratch someone to give another chance to Vrana, and it was not going to be Stephenson.

I was not able to find a video of Niskanen's interview, by the way.

I think this team is still great. They don't do much in the regular season but they still won two consecutive Presidents' Trophies like that, and are still leading their division this year.

Last year, they had two great playoff rounds, but the Pens managed to beat them while being completely dominated. I was really impressed by the Caps' first round against the Leafs, who played great.

This year, the Pens seem to be good (when they won the Cup last year, they were horrible), but they still gave up four even-strength goals in this game. They're one of the worst 5-on-5 teams in the league. I don't think they'll go far.

Hornqvist is week-to-week, by the way, after that hit by Orpik. It did look serious when he was helped to the locker room.
