We are getting set for what should be a very entertaining Game 3 tonight between the Pens and Caps. AT&T Sportsnet Pens Analyst Jay Caufield joined Cook and Poni in studio on Tuesday to discuss the Pens response to Tom Wilson's hit on Brian Dumoulin and what to expect from tonight.


"He (Wilson) did not try to avoid it." Caufield told the guys. "The NHL's main topic has been about head shots....this was a direct head shot and it should have been addressed."


Caufield said he was surprised that there was no penalty for the hit and a follow up suspension. He says the Pens will need to send a message that they will not put up with this but need to be careful in the response that it doesn't cost them a game.


Listen to the full hour with Jay and the guys as he talks about the impact of getting some of the injured Pens back in the lineup and some missed calls in Game 2.
