Scuds missed 24 games already? Wow.

Can't help but notice how much better the team defense is without #58

One of the best defensive games of the season. What exactly does that say besides that some of our stars decide to improvise too much instead of playing simple procedural game.

Most goalies get it. It's just from leaning on the crossbar.

I like Scuderi, but seeing the way the young dmen have played really makes that 4 year deal look not so good. Small gripe.

What a game by that lineup. Wow. What an impressive win. Jumped on the Leafs early to get control of the game and then Crosby comes up huge late in the 3rd. This was a team that absolutely crushed the defending cup champs two days ago. Had to give them a ton of confidence and then the pens just sucked the life out of them, devils style. Great game.

Its several dozens of games early to say something about that. Consistency is the primary difference between young and vet defensemen. Scuderi is the consistency totem of the hockey gods.

Gutsiest win I have seen from a pens team in a long long time. They didn't just play physical, to a man guys were willing to give up their body to make the play. It was beautiful to watch. That is how you play tough.

Calling out Scuds is about as low as it gets though. The deal we have with him is fine and he will contribute greatly to the team once he is healthy.

Haha calling him out? Pretty sure I said I like him. And that it was a small gripe. It doesn't bother me that he's on the team at all.

Bortuzzo and Despres weren't good enough or weren't ready to supplant Eaton/Engo last year. Ha.

Stars:

1. Sid
2. MAF
3. Nisky

All deserving, but I would have given one to Bort/Maatta.

When fully healthy (not that we ever are) how do you scratch Bortuzzo/Despres/Sill/Megna?
