Lean on Me

Bill Withers wrote the song "Lean on Me," which was used in the 1989 movie about a crazy principal who used unorthodox methods to get a urban school to change.  In the song states:

Lean on me, when you're not strong 
And I'll be your friend 
I'll help you carry on 
For it won't be long 
'Til I'm gonna need 
Somebody to lean on

Who will the Penguins lean on now that Crosby is down?   With Sidney Crosby out indefinitely with a broken jaw, the Penguins will have to "lean on" Evgeni Malkin as their go to Center.  In the case of goal tending, Vokoun has been exceptional, coming off of two back-to-back shutouts (4-0 WIN, 2-0 NYI).

The Penguins (26-8) have their next match-up tomorrow night against the dangerous, Buffalo Sabres (13-17-6).  The Penguins will be trying for their 16th consecutive win.  This is one win away from tying the most wins in a row.  This streak was done by the 1992-1993 Pittsburgh Penguins.  That previous streak was made possible by Mario Lemieux.  The Penguins game tomorrow night will be nationally televised on the NBC Sports Network and ROOT.  Goals have been at a premium recently; therefore, take the Penguins to win and under 5.5 goals.
