Literally, though, those were half the draws he won all night. He was 25% on faceoffs tonight. This is his sixth year in the league now and he hasn't improved one bit at them. It hurts the team and it's something that he should be able to improve if he'd just work on it. Just some fair criticism.

There are still a lot of the same kind of issues that have plagued this team for a while, but then again, they were also playing the reigning President's Trophy winner and Stanley Cup runner-up. Can't be upset with a shootout win on the road in a game that was mostly evenly contested, although I don't like the typical play a strong two periods and then let the other team take over the third. There's a lot of things Bylsma's Pens do well, but they have yet to figure out how to play with a lead in the third period.

3 stars

1) D. Sedin
2) M. Cooke
3) C. Higgins

Little bit of hometown bias on that list.

There is some type of cosmic power that will not let all top 3 Penguin Centers to be in the same game(s) for long.


Well they got to play ~40 mins together last season, in the winter classic, Staal's first and Sid's last game.

Luongo looked to be in midpost-season form during the shootout.

Slept through most of the 2nd period (damn recliner being all comfy and stuff). Good start. We're not gonna win them all but these points are the ones we are wishing for at the end of the season (I actually hate that analogy. The points a last game earn are as much as the first game)

I think a lot of the third period was just the fatigue factor, this is the first game that matters and was played at an extremely high level for a season opener, those little things that cost us will go away as guys get their hockey legs back

I really like this Neal-Malkin-Sullivan line, while they did not score on Even Strength, they where generating chances after chance after chance, Sullivan is such a good play maker that i think Malkin will start to realize he has to do less and less and that will really help his game if he is not trying to get through 3-4 guys himself

Yeah that was pretty brutal from Tang.

My one HCDB criticism was having Geno take that defensive zone faceoff (on his forehand no less) with 1:30 or something to go. Why...?

Those three together looked actually really good together. Neal was everywhere that first period.

Neal looked like he went out there with something to prove. That line could be huge this season.
