Pittsburgh Penguins (16-8-0) @ Toronto Maple Leafs (15-10-0) ROOT, NHLN-US, CBC - 7:00 pm/et Air Canada Centre - Toronto, ON Really early "Gameday" post today. The Pittsburgh Penguins enter the second half of the season with a game against the Maple Leafs. The Pens always seem to have trouble with the Maple Leafs.     Season Series: 0-1-0 Last meeting that counted: January 23, 2013. Penguins lost 5-2. What we said in our recap: Really bizarre game. Leafs saw a total of 11:40 of PP time, scoring only once (and that was in garbage time late in the third). The good part of that is the PK unit kept the Pens in the game. That's pretty much the only redeeming fact to come from this. The Pens just didn't look prepared to handle the Leafs' team speed, especially after two dog fights on the road. We were really expecting Mats Sundin to show up in third period and score two goals. Questionable penalties aside, the Pens, down 3-2 and then 4-2, didn't register a shot in third period until after the 10-minute mark. Woof. Know Your Enemy: Pension Plan Puppets What they're saying: Nothing yet because we're posting this so early. Pittsburgh Penguins Lines: Kunitz - Crosby - Dupuis Bennett - Malkin - Neal Cooke - Sutter - Kennedy Glass - Vitale - Adams Orpik - Martin Niskanen - Letang Eaton - Engelland Fleury Toronto Maple Leafs Lines: van Reimsdyk - Bozak - Kessel McClement - Grabovski - Kulemin MacArthur - Kadri - Komarov McLaren - Steckel - Orr Phaneuf - Holzer Gunnarsson - Kosta Franson - Fraser Reimer What's the over/under on how much actual hockey will be played before Engelland & Orr fight ?
