With their backs up against the wall, the Pittsburgh Penguins head back to the Consol Energy Center with the goal of tying up their best of seven series with the New Jersey Devils. After another heartbreak 2-1 loss, the Pens are now faced with the daunting task of winning two straight vs. the President's Trophy winning Devils. 

"It's now or never. We are focused and ready to go. Our intentions are to take things one game at a time. We need to win today and I have faith in our group of guys. We can do it" said team captain Sidney Crosby. 

"I feel fine, I am ready to go" the 2012 MVP added. 

Crosby was sidelined with knee pain and could not participate in game 5. This was to the same knee that he had surgery on earlier this year. The Penguins clearly missed their captain as they were out shot 39-27 last game.

"We need to play Penguins hockey tonight. That entails getting the puck deep in their zone and finishing off our checks. We let our game plan fall to the wayside last game. The boys have reviewed hours of game tapes, they know their role and what my expectations are. It's time to send this [series] back to Newark" said a stonefaced Dan Bylsma.

Game 6 takes place Saturday afternoon where it will be do or die for the Pens.
