Pens at Thrashers, a 3-2 win
Something good: Dany Sabourin. Second goal aside, he played an outstanding game, especially in the third period. His play allowed the Pens to remain in position to get a win with a late goal. That's the kind of play you need when one of your main guys (Fleury) is out with an injury.
Where they need improvement: Accuracy. Nothing major stuck out to me, so I'm going with something minor. The Pens put 31 shots on Ondrej Pavelec which is a good amount, but they missed the net 12 times. To quote my coach in Be A Pro mode in NHL09 "You've got to make the goalie make a save."
Something good: Sidney Crosby. The three point night was obviously great to see. Though I still don't think he's at 100%, the way he was skating was an even bigger plus. His agility was pretty good, and while the top-end burst he normally has wasn't there, he was much better in that regard than in any game in recent memory. Hopefully, that's a sign he's closing in on full health.
