Pens at Sabres, a 5-1 win

Something good: I've been critical of Carl Hagelin's lack of production, so it's only fair to give him kudos for getting the monkey off his back last night. He showed a ton of patience, which had to be tough to do when you haven't put one in in a while. Hopefully, this is the start of a good streak.

Where they need improvement: The fourth line of Tom Kuhnhackl, Carter Rowney, and Ryan Reaves did not get much even-strength time, around 6-7 minutes each. That's actually good though, because they got buried out there, per NaturalStatTrick.com. They were out-attempted 1-10 at even-strength when 34 was out there, 2-11 w/ 37, and 2-10 w/ 75. They can get away with that against a team like Buffalo, but if they want to get back to being a 4 line team, they need better.

Something good: 4th line issues aside, the Pens did score 4 even-strength goals. ES pay had been an issue at times this season, so that was good to see.

In the bottom left corner you can just make out Tom Kühnhackl and Ryan Reaves.
