“We're in a good position right now and we've just got to keep going. Winning the division isn't the ultimate goal, but it's the first step, and it's a big step. You want the division, conference title and the President's Trophy in the regular season.”- Left Wing Tanner Glass on the Pens' goals for the season.


"I don't think the Sabres were the hungrier team. I thought we stunk, and I'm not going to give Buffalo any credit. I will give their third line credit -- they outplayed our top players, and that can't happen"- Rangers Head Coach John Tortorella, gracious in defeat after a 3-1 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday.

Jeffrey has 4 hits in 15 games. Not acceptable for a fringe NHLer trying to stick around as a depth forward. Bennett has three times as many hits in the same amount of games.

The Dan & Dan segment annoys me a little. Lots of scripted softball questions that they probably rehearsed earlier. I don't expect controversial investigative reporting but something a little better

Doesn't really seem to have any upside. He seems likely to become career AHLer

It's unfortunate Jeffrey has gotten all this playing time.

He is losing the LGP "player who sits so he must be good" mystique.

Are the Rangers delicate flowers, or are they too rugged for Despres to play against?

I like to have a beer with the first faceoff, but this is pretty early.

At least Sutter's centering the 3rd line. I'd like to see Vitale get some work on the 3rd line today but it's not happening.
