I understand everyone has defensive responsibilities on the ice, but to single them out, is over the top imho.


All 3 (Malkin, Neal, Kunitz) were -4.

Take that for what you will.



Kunitz has been quietly terrible since the break. Now, we all know that him and Dupuis were not going to play at the level they were at earlier in the season. But man, when Kennedy, Kunitz, and Duper go into goal scoring slumps, they are loooooooooooong ones.


I feel like it might be a Crosby thing for Kunitz and Dupuis, but I'd need to see some stats before I really made a decision either way.

I blame HCDB for that...

I know it's harder to match lines on the road, but the Pens would've been better served to get the Malkin line away from the Kovy line.

Malkin's line has cooled off since the break. It was bound to happen sometime. We don't need to be concerned though, they'll heat back up soon enough.
