What the hell, Martin played fine this game. He had one bad play where he pinched and left Letang hanging out to dry but other than that he was exceptional.

i'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing going into saturday's game


I think Saturday's game is ripe for a let down. The Pens will be coming off an emotional high with the big win against the Rangers in the return game, it's a Saturday afternoon game in NJ, plus they're probably going to start Thiessen. The Pens may not lose, but it's a pretty good set-up for them dropping one, which might not be a bad thing in the big picture. It may sound weird, but I don't want this winning streak getting too long this deep into the season. It seems like teams always get into some bad habits when they win that much and then need a little while to get re-focused. I'd hate for that to be happening right when they're supposed to be gearing up for the playoffs. Don't get me wrong, I want them to win as much as possible the rest of the way, and they pretty much need to if they're really going to catch the Rangers. I think Sunday's the real important game this weekend, as Philly is still right behind the Pens.


Those are my thoughts exactly. I'd be thoroughly surprised if they win on Saturday, strange as that sounds.

Rob Rossi: How much has Crosby's work ethic influenced you over the years?

Malkin: I'm (a) lucky guy because when I (came) to Pittsburgh, I was surprised how Sid, who was the best player, worked so hard. It is every day. I had never worked liked that. I watched what Sid (did), and now I (have) started to do it, too. I think my level is up, too, because of that work.

From this article.

Pens fans're lucky folks.

Just want to come on here and give my credits to Little Tiger. He was a fiesty little tiger tonight. I forgot how his play style was. He can vanish for 5 games at a time but hes usually pretty reliable in big games. I was able about park over him but I'll take that back. TK deserves his 3rd line winger spot again. Glad hes back and healthy.

I was wrong

this was the first game all season that the Rangers gave up more than 4 goals.

The Devils game is a good bet to be the end of the streak, I agree with you. They cannot get up for that team, and they are very boring to watch and play against. However, if the Pens can just get it into OT, they will kill Jersey 4-on-4 and the Pens' shootout lineup will be amazing. I wonder if they'd go to the Flower for the shootout, or leave Theissen in?

Not sure how it looked on tv, but in person I never felt like the rangers threatened us, they seem very much like a team coasting along until the playoffs come. If anything I have learned from the past few years, you have to be playing your best hockey going into the playoffs to win.

It was a wierd game. It seemed slow and muddled. Passes seemed off. Lots of swating at bounding pucks. Not sure if the ice was that good at all.
I'm glad this one is out of the way. I hate games where the players know something is different. I just want them to play like they play any other night.

Sid looked cautious, real cautious. Can't blame him. Almost seemed like Bylsma didn't want to ruin the team chemistry by giving Sid perminant linemates. Instead opting to use him all over the place never giving him a chance to get settled in with linemates. Sid need to work on the point a little more, they didn't look insync, unserstandably so. I can see Sid becomming "the playmaker" again like he was when he first joined the league. But still a star in the league.

Don't know how long this comeback will last but i wish him the best and hope he can play the rest of his career in good health.

The Rangers didn't really threaten us once.

Did Sid not deflect the shot from the point before Dupuis scored?

I initially thought I saw that and the replay didn't convince me otherwise.

He should have 2 A on the night, IMO.

Is this as amazing as it sounds? That's pretty impressive going almost a whole season not giving up more than 4 goals in a single game.

Yeah, when they showed the replay it clearly looked like he got a stick on it, but nobody ever said anything about it. And usually Errey is all over that kind of stuff. Weird.

IMO, the only concern with Sid right now is that he makes this return permanent. I have no doubt he'll return to the same player on a plane above everyone else, as long as he can play.

This is a stunning stat right here.

Rangers have a great coach, system, and goaltender, eh?

Yep. And the Pens have given up more than 4 goals in a game started by Fleury only once. And they beat the Jets in that one.

Pretty key deflection too because otherwise it should have been a pretty routine save and not a nice rebound for Duper to tap in. Then again, Biron was in net, so I can understand why the scorer figured Sid didn't touch it.
