Pick Your Poison: Roberts or Ruutu?

November 22, 2007: Jarkko Ruutu takes two penalties for diving (which were overturned on appeal), but scores the shoot-out-winning goal for the Penguins.

Pittsburgh snaps out of an early season funk. Ottawa begins a long, slow decline.

April 9-16, 2008: Jarkko Ruutu gets some quality ice time, kills penalties, takes no penalties himself, and scores the game-winning goal in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

Pittsburgh advances to the conference semifinals. Ottawa cleans out their lockers.

Gary Roberts isn’t the only Ottawa-killer on the Pens’ roster, I guess.
