Same matchups?

I'm sure that coach Michel Therrien is more making a statement -- a vote of confidence -- than saying that he wants to match the Crosby line against the Zetterberg line, but here's what he just said at his morning press conference about not putting Sid the Kid on the ice against Hank and Pavel ...

"I don't mind that matchup against Zetterberg and Datsyuk," said Therrien. "Crosby's one of the best players if not the best player in the league. So you think I mind? And he likes challenges. So we don't mind that. And he's used to playing against the top players. That's always been our philosophy."

Therrien is so transparent, he's comical. He looks beaten during the press conferences. You know as well as I do that he is not looking forward to a Crosby/Zetterberg confrontation during this series. Crosby has been annointed the "best player in the game" by the same experts who predicted Sna Jose would win the Cup. The rest is just whislting in the dark by Therrien.
