Simon,
We thought you played a great game. However, there was that turnover. You will be heading back to Wilkes Barre, here is your Megabus ticket.

Hopefully this does not prove to be accurate. The way despres has played since his callup reenforces my belief that the pens wasted a year of control of maatta

Was anyone surprised there was no response by the Isles when Malkin cross checked Tavares and then towered over him? I could not believe that the Isles did not come after Geno there. Very soff!

You remember things like that, if you're the Isles. You take a number and you get him later, even if it's next time...guys will hold on to these things for years if necessary...but this is a division rival, we'll see them again soon enough, and Malkin is gonna get it...you can't show up their captain and best player like that and think no one on his club isn't gonna take a number...

Good on the Isles for focusing on winning instead of going after Geno right there, but he's got it coming next time...

Not "soff" by the Isles, very smart...they know the stakes, they know how it works...

I think it's extremely concerning that Letang and Engelland are the two defensemen I'd pick to sit when Martin and Scuds come back.

Letang. What a disaster. What a mess. What a catastrophe. What a calamity. Every time he touches the puck, bad things happen. It was always acceptable before because he would make up for it, but this season has just been awful.

Kind of hard to believe the Isles were smart there, when a minute later Vanek takes a stupid penalty to negate his teams power play and give the Pens one in overtime. I know he was frustrated by the non-calls on Letang, but that wasn't smart at all.

Maybe they will come after Geno next game, but they didn't stand up for anyone on their team this game. Jokinen basically head locked and dragged a guy to the ground and the guy looked like he was going to cry when he got up. Nobody came to his rescue. Who on their team is tough? There isn't much toughness on that team.

I think he eventually will, too. But I think it's a vicious circle with him, though. The worse he plays, the more he hears it, the worse he plays... But only he can break that cycle.

We've been hearing that "Letang will come around" for weeks.

At what point do you say "maybe this is what we're stuck with"?

What does Vanek slashing Niskanen have to do with what we're talking about?

They have as much toughness as we do, right? Martin, Carkner, Boulton, Clutterbuck is a big hitter, Cizikas is rough, Finley is massive, if nothing else...and we're talking about Evgeni Malkin cross checking their captain up high and standing over him...it's not like Malkin is going to fight their enforcer...one of their guys like Matt Martin is gonna return the favor in kind probably...I doubt Geno will answer the bell for what he did...though, I'd like to think that Tavares or someone in Malkin's weight class would give him that opportunity before anything else, but I'm not positive they will...

Meh, Malkin didn't do anything that wasn't returned in kind to him. Though the look on JT's face when Malkin first hits him is fantastic.

The Islanders need to worry about winning the next game against the Penguins, not retribution for perceived slights. If they can do that, they are ahead of the game.

Absolutely, but I see a fight between like Engelland or someone else of that ilk will slug it out and calm the game down. Probably a fight within the first 10 minutes of the next game or so
