Couldn't be happier for Letang there scoring the most goals by a Pens DM in history.

Where is the fourth line in all this? They deserve more time.

I really thought they learned their lesson last year when they had celebrities doing commentary with Pierre and got destroyed because of it. But, guess not.

I couldn’t remember who that was. I kept wanting to say Betty White, but I knew that wasn’t right.

Dear god was that bad.

Whoever is in charge of this crap needs shot.

I hope so but every time I think Geno has a game he can build off he reverts back to the lethargic Geno

Official word is Brassard was out with an upper body injury and is day to day.

Let's hope.

The worst case scenario is he actually IS injured and the Pens are calling it "day to day' to downplay it to potential suitors and he ends up failing a physical to a potential trade partner.

I don't /think/ that's what's going on here since he seems to have been practicing and was a game time decision, but with hockey, you never really know.

DB didn't take to the optional skate yesterday morning which is unusual for him. Ditto for Maata as well.
Still bleeding shots and only getting 22 on net isn't good enough. Thankfully we got the early big lead or it might have gone the other way.

Tampa is really a top to bottom great squad so even though they were coming in cold it was a quality win.

The Pensblog has a nice breakdown of the game (as per usual). The shot differential is a little misleading, as none of the Lightnings' shots in the 1st were from high danger areas. Also, that 3rd line pairing (Pearson-Cullen-Hornqvist) was BAD - not a single shot on goal.

Yeah. I was doing other things while the game was on in the background, so didn't really want to make the comment without hearing more about it. But from the parts I did pay attention to, seemed like most of Tampa's shots were from the perimeter and the Pens were collapsing on their own net a lot.

Which would certainly explain the shot disparity. Give them all the low danger shots they want and then pick and choose your spots to mount an attack the other way. Not a bad strategy with a team that dangerous.

Interesting observation I just read from (excuse me while I vomit) Mark Madden. The announcers made a big to-do about Malkin wearing two different gloves, which I just rung up as Malkin being a weirdo. But Madden observed that Malkin kept the glove on during the fight at the end of the game while dropping the other glove.

So maybe he's battling a hand injury?

Although, watching the video again, I'm not sure that Malkin really had the chance to drop the other glove as it was wrapped around Stamkos the entire time.

But I looked up some pictures of Malkin from last year, and the thing with wearing two different gloves does appear to be new. Every picture I can find of him has him wearing matching gloves.

Didn't the Bolts hit the pipe twice in the first? Like I said last night the Pens did a nice job on Kucherov early on.

Yeah, the female commentator was really lame last night. NBC is so good at ruining hockey TV.

Lipps, you might be onto something with Malkin's hand. He hasn't used that big shot of his nearly enough this year.

Stamkos rattled the pipe early in the 2nd, but that was on a PP. I honestly don't recall another time.

16 shots to 5-that isn't good even when winning by 3. Keep that up and the Bolts will get back in this one.
The Pens did a good job on Kucherov who was basically erased for most of the period.

Man, Tampa is good but they pack the OZ way too much and we should look for breakout passes with maybe a few odd man chances.

600

Not that it matters but the Pens were cheated out of a shot. At one point they had the Pens with one goal on 2 shots—except that Wilson had 2 SOG in the sequence immediately before Sheehan scored.

Letang might have had two of the three best days of career... All-Star Tourney and last night. He looked like the best defenseman in hockey last night, at both ends.
