The Penguins are so beaten up that Jason Williams is set to play tonight. Crosby is definitely out, Staal might be out, Some dude named Bortuzzo is out, Malkin might be out, Kris Letang might be dead. Who the hell knows?

What I do know is that Pittsburgh knows how to win close games and has stayed near the top of the standings without a lot of hardware. That's thanks in large part to Dan Bylsma getting a lot of hockey out of guys like Pascal Dupuis and Tyler "Manbearpig" Kennedy. They also play defense incredibly well and get good goaltending 9/10 times from their precious Flower. Detroit should win tonight; let's see if they do.

Comment away and let's go Red Wings.
