Monday's Dump & Chase: Will Pekka Start Tuesday? I Hope So.

But if he's ready, and there's no reason to believe he isn't, then he should be the starter tomorrow night. He certainly shouldn't play every game down the stretch, but he needs to get some game action heading into the offseason. And we need to see him…it's about all we have left.
