NHL Insider Pierre McGuire

The PM Team w/Poni & Mueller
Monday, March 18th
It seems like a lot of people want a first round matchup with the Islanders and Pierre cautions fans about wanting that series because if it starts in New York, it will be very difficult to win.  Asked about Sid's two uncharacteristically bad plays that cost the team the game against the Flyers, Pierre takes us behind the bench and tells us how you deal with that type of situation when it happens to a guy like Sid.  Looking at the Pens power play issues, Pierre says they've been too inconsistent, they've had bad passing and Phil Kessel is pressing too hard right now.  Pierre does have ways to fix a guy like Phil and the problems he's having right now and tells us exactly what he'd do.  Malkin got hurt this weekend and is listed week-to-week and Pierre tells us that when he hears week-to-week, he thinks 2-3 weeks.
