Trap games don't exist, so it's not like there was a possibility of it happening anyway.

What is the "Loss that affects the top of the Eastern Conference?" Boston or did someone get hurt?

ehhnnnnnnnnnn

You obviously don't know what a trap is.


i'm glad it didn't happen, but it was the definition of a trap game. glad the penguins were focused enough not to get caught.

When they're looking to name GM of the Year they should watch this game.

Didn't take them long to come together. This was a real team win with all new players chipping in in meaningful ways.

I interpreted it to mean the loss of Marchant to a concussion on a cheapshot from Volchenkov the other night. Marchant is out indefinitely.

Is the Fire DB thread still germain or have all of the people that agitated for that been relegated to the ECHL?

Vokoun stunk tonight, but what a great sign that the team can pick up their backup and win a game by overwhelming a terrible opponent.

Getting Letang back not only adds a great transition player to the lineup, but it makes Niskanen that much better at the transition game as well since he finds himself in different matchups and not doing the heavy lifting.

The new guys are everything we needed, and everything we hoped to get in each of them.

Neal, Crosby and Martin being added to this team should be very frightening to the East. Heard on XM today from Healy that the Pens are clearly the most talented, deepest and most unified team as the playoffs approach. I would have to agree.

These weak sister southern opponents in the past would have been easy to overlook. The new leaders added to this team seem to really even out the effort without Sid to lead.

I could not be happier with this team's makeup.

Oh, and the Flyers lost again.
