With the regular season coming to close, the Pittsburgh Penguins sit 7th in the Eastern Conference and will compete for the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive year in a row. However, winning the Cup will be no easy task as the Penguins must first get through last years Stanley Cup finalists the Toronto Maple Leafs. It is apparent that in order for the Penguins to have any success they are going to need the whole team to raise their game to a whole other level. It is uncertain as to whom the Penguins will give the nod to in goal this Sunday. Ryan Miller had a subpar season with a record of 25-26-3, a GAA of 2.92 and a Save % of .890. Conversely, Johan Holmqvist went 16-5-3 with a GAA of 2.43 and a save % of .909.

The season series between both teams saw the Leafs take 3 out 4 very close games. The single win the Penguins picked up saw Ryan Miller steal a game in OT.

"The season should not rest on just two individuals that being either Ryan or Johan. We need some of our big guns to produce and we expect them to do so. Most importantly though, we need to play defense first hockey. If we loosen up and play a run and gun style against such a talented team, we won't stand a chance. Its going to be vital for us to keep our composure and just out work these guys." coach Ken Hitch***** said with enthusiasm.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are coming off a incredible campaign and are the clear favourites in this series. The Penguins are no strangers to dealing with adversity, as they took down the almighty Florida Panthers last year in 7 games before being dismantled by the Leafs in the semi-finals.

"The pressure has got to be on them. They are the favorites and nobody is anticipating a win from our side. The same thing happened lastyear and we shocked the hell out of everybody. Now its time to do that again. It's time for redemption" replied assistant captain Derek Roy.

It will be interesting to see how the Penguins respond in Toronto where it extremely important to take at least one out of the two games on the road.
