Schultz is playing some good positional D also. Good for him.
Pens must shoot the puck on goal again in the 2nd. :D

Yes. Schultz has made some great recoveries on Cole pinching and also one play where he pinched but got back in time to break up the play.

The Cole Schultz pairing is getting a lot of time with our 4th line in that 1st period.

Also, Maatta and Daley got a lot of time with HMK... Possibly trying to jump start Maatta and Daley.

First period update from section 114.

The Panthers look horrible. Losing moat puck battles, lazy passing....they dont look interested in this game.

All 4 lines for the Penguins look like they smell blood. Hustling by everyone out there. A very good start.

The arena is semi-empty. About 5 minutes to faceoff, it looked like only 5000 people here. Large sections in the nosebleeds are empty, multiple sections.

The Panthers didnt even introduce their new head coach in his first home game. They showed him on screen at the first TV timeout and he was loudly booed.

Instead of challenging Kuhnhackl goal, Rowe should have used the timeout to lay into the team for lack of effort. Instead, he lost a call that never should been challenged, and the team still looked disinterested.

Schultz looks really good. I like how he isnt afraid to attack players rushimg into the zone, either taking the puck away or making it difficult for them to pass or shoot.

Onto period 2....

I said that same thing during the period.......FLA looks like they're going thru the motions. Taking Jagr's recent comments into account, it's looking like they've got big problems down there. That ship is taking on water.

Said it before, NEVER give the puck to Hornqvist for a zone entry. It leads to nothing.

I missed the first 10 mins of the 2nd. Did the Pens put Fleury in for the goal against?

Nice goals Jags. Looked like a BS penalty though.

Kuhnhackl get dragged down and no call.

You pick tonight to ask that? Tonight he's actually stood out and had some chances.

Yep.

The Panthers announcers are in disbelief that the Penguins know how to block so many shots and break up so many passes.

Did they not watch any of our Stanley Cup games last year?! Haha

I don't see it either. But what are the alternatives? Guentzel in a 4th line role? I'd rather see him getting 1st line minutes in WBS. Fehr has been terrible so far this year. Wilson is just a guy eating up some 4th line minutes at this point I guess.

Pretty uneventful period.

I will say, without the advantage of replay, i thought the too much man penalty was BS, and Sullivan was livid. I watched Bonino coming out of the zone with his hand up for a change. I watched Cullen wait with his leg on top of the boards, then Bonino played the puck, he went to the far door to go to the bench, Cullen hoped on and played the puck. No idea if that was why the call was made, but if so....horrible call.

During TV timeout with about 10 minutes left, Letang and Luongo were having a long conversation as Luongo made his way back to hs net. Looked friendly, but you rarely see that in a game. Youll see guys make a quick comment to former teammates or national teammates, but this was a 20-30 sexond conversation.

Not sure if anyone saw Yohes little piece on Trochek before the game. In short, he seems to be one pissed about Gallant firing, and maybe even Tallon pushed aside. Made comments that the team was very close, made the playoffs, and was very surprised that so many trades were made over the summer. Things may get interesting in South Florida as there seem to be a few unhappy players....key players.
