No Letang tonight. Day to day which is weird because he didn't give much of an effort the other night.

Columbus is minus Atkinson and Wennberg.

No idea which team shows up tonight. The one that played well against Columbus the other night or the team that went through the motions against the Ducks last game.


Penguins projected lineup
Conor Sheary -- Sidney Crosby -- Patric Hornqvist

Jake Guentzel -- Evgeni Malkin -- Phil Kessel

Carl Hagelin -- Riley Sheahan -- Bryan Rust

Tom Kuhnhackl -- Carter Rowney -- Ryan Reaves

Brian Dumoulin -- Matt Hunwick

Olli Maatta -- Chad Ruhwedel

Ian Cole -- Jamie Oleksiak

Matt Murray

Tristan Jarry

Scratched: Dominik Simon

Injured: Kris Letang (lower body), Justin Schultz (lower body)

for what it's worth, there's a prevailing rumor from about a week ago that said if Letang was scratched against CBJ that he'd be close to getting dealt.

Murray doing 360s in his paint. Team still looks like garbage.

Yeah, Murray is in a funk. He looks lost out there.

I thought the top line had some good moments but of course they miss the net again and again.

More sloppy bullshit from this team and Murray leaves the near side wide open.

0-2
Second line on the ice again for the goal. Malkin had to get his stick on the shooters stick but did not. Again Murray gives up another bad goal to the short side.
I'm thinking that Jarry gives us a better chance right now.

I’m seeing almost zero puck control by the pens and that’s on behalf of all four lines.

Panarin kills us.
Great second period after coming out flat. Really had it working up and down the line up. Malkin did everything but
finish. Encouraged by the 5 on 5 play in the second but they can't win if they don't finish.

Headed to OT with a late Jake tally. Come on boys!

Overtime

Strange trip getting there.
Malkin has been a horse all night.

Dumo got in a little too deep into the crease and slightly impeded Bob while Sid buried the would be game winner.

But we won in a shootout, so all good.

I saw the highlights of the game, that interference...jeez that's a tough one to call. 5 yrs ago that would've have gotten a second glance

Did we get penalized for that? Looks like Cbus had a PP in OT?

No, though Torts wanted one. Are they allowed to issue a penalty as the result of replay if it isn’t called on the ice?

Jake smacked Panarin in the face with his stock around the 3:30 mark of OT, which was why CLB spent two min on the power play.

One thing Pens have to correct is looking flat as all hell in the first period. I don’t know what is going on with this team but getting in 2-0 holes after one period is not going to translate to winning.

The first time they showed the replay, I was confident the goal would stand. The more they showed it, though, the more my opinion wavered. Dumo’s leg was wedged between Bob’s legs and you could make a case that prevented him from being able to gather himself and get to the far post to stop Sid’s shot.

I was a bit fired up by the time I made that post. Crosby finally scored and the Pens had the win secured only to have it taken away.
Considering how much shit Murray goes through in his net every game I'm surprised he hasn't had one taken back for the same reason.

Like Orangesteel said, it gets old watching them fall behind early. Last night they didn't give up and from the second period on they played much better even 5 on 5.
Came back from multiple deficits three times.

I still wish the Pens would have made a bigger pitch for Panarin. I'd also like to know why the Blackhawks gave up on him quickly. I know Chicago got some nice pieces for him but Panarin and the other gnat Kane were something together.

Torts is still a world class douche. Bragging to the press how much he hates the Pens. Calling Malkin and Crosby goons.

Or you hold his head under water for a minute and if he can't make that bring him up early. Then you burn him on the back of his thighs with quarter sized third degree burns. Not a lot but enough to make sitting and sleep nearly impossible.
For the third act if he hasn't shit himself to death you put him up against a Polar bear, in a cage.

It worries me how much thought you've put into this.

Like, I feel like I should call someone.
