I would not take too much out of King Henry getting the pull. While he could have played a little better, he was not he issue. Pens have his number, plain and simple

Seems to be a bad matchup for them...for whatever reason? It's odd because the rags were 6-0 last year against Philly, and they had their way with us. :?:


:D you are correct & i was wrong with the rangers. knock on wood, this continues.

How huge was getting Vokoun? Rags and Flyers both were forced to play their starters on their 2nd game back-to-back and both got torched. Vokoun comes in, does great and Fleury is still well rested for what will be a brutal season for goaltenders.

Biron isn't horrible, and neither is Leighton, but Vokoun is so much better than both of them. Imagine if the Flyers got him instead of us? Who would we have gone to?

Not to mention picking up Jeff Zatkoff for a #3 goalie. I really feel like that signing is very underrated right now.
