The Jani Rita experiment is over already

2:01 TOI; 0:00 in the 3rd; playing with Lefebvre and Endicott.

I'm glad he was given a chance to succeed here in Pittsburgh.

Ah but more importantly Endicott had only 4 mins today. Has Coach T finally seen the light (or lack thereof) on #14?

One can only hope! Lefebrve is killing the PK and I mean KILLING the KILLERS and not the PENALTY!!! He did make a nice pass early in the game.

they all should be sent down to ahl,and call up Christensen and Talbot.
If i think about it,sent down Koltsov,play Rita at least 5-10 games more...
Lines :
Malone - Crosby - Recchi
Surovy - Christensen - Ouellet
LeClair - Talbot - Armstrong
Rita - Roy - Boguniecki
Gonchar - Jackman
Whitney - Scuderi
Orpik - Cairns

Rita and Koltsov are essentially the same player but I like Koltsov's forechecking better since he's faster and fearless going into the corners.

If I were the coach here are the lines I'd have:

Malone-Crosby-Armstrong
Surovy-Christensen-Ouellet
Leclair-Recchi-Koltsov
Lefebvre-Talbot-Bogy

Defenseive pairings were fine yesterday but I really want to see what Malone and Crosby can do together.

They worked great together earlier in the season. Palffy was the key however, his speed covered for Malone. Malone is really finding his game right now as the 2nd line center so I wouldnt mess with him. Ouelette can get it down on line one and Surovy is getting closer to scoring and we know how streaky he can get.

He broke a sweat?? :? They saw that and figured he'd better rest maybe.

I think that EC will be called up after the Olympic break. We can only hope that Endicott is sent down to take his place. I have yet to form an opinion on Rita. Endo has already proven that he does not have NHL skills.
