Game 58 vs Sens - Thoughts from the Morning After

Postby Penspal on Wed Feb 14, 2018 9:15 am

Pens win 6-3

- Loved seeing the Guentzelinger and ZAR each get a pair, let the young legs run wild! Jake should of had 3-4 goals
- Pens continue to torture and chase goalies.... Poor Condon, he never knew what hit him
- Can't ever remember seeing Sid smile at Phaneuf, but he did this game, and then Dion gets traded... Sid's got power!
- Loved seeing Cole stand up for himself. Not sure quite what got him riled up, but regardless of new toughness on the Pens, you gotta look after yourself
- Murray will never get the goalie accolades, but all he does is win and save pucks when he needs too. Loved hearing his comments on NOT liking Brassard's shot ;)
- Powerplay gets back on track after a cold spell. Did it take that long to adjust w/out Horny... apparently so.
- Dumo and Tanger had a solid game, and the stats show it. 2 points for each and +4... impressive
- Pens interest in Pageau should now be ended... Did JPP even play in this game? Dude was Invisible.
- Brassard the Pens killer looked good of course. Costs are too high for him and the Pens would not be able to sign Horny...move on from Brassard.
- Hoffman though, dude's got skillz.... name is floating out there... GMJR, get it done!
- Could you imagine if the Pens could somehow get Karlsson as a rental... plan the parade now, wheel out the cup.... 16 straight wins.

Right before Cole went after him, the puck carrier (can't think of his name ATM) was coming over the blue line and Cole was down low to block the late shot. The Senator shot the puck straight at Cole, not towards the net, and it pissed him off. I would be too. Good for him.

Pens are fun to watch again and they are having fun.
- I like that ZAR keeps getting better. Sprong just doesn't have his complete game and compete and Simon is meh.
- Tried to point out yesterday that Guentzel is a legit top 6 LW and he goes out and proves it like he was reading the thread. No one, NO ONE, on the Pens redirects shots better than Jake.
- Sheary is snakebit. He had about 6 prime scoring chances. He is always in the right spot but has become the whiff-master.

Rough to watch the decline of Erik Karlsson this year. Worst season ever. Less goals than even when he got the Matt Cooke injury. When Boucher loses a team, he loses a team.

Hope ZAR is on the playoff roster. He should have a good playoff beard by the second round.

Unbelievably, Letang is #6 defenseman in the league for SHOTS ON GOAL. Forget about the blocks and misses. He was decent last night. So against the Kings, he'll be awful.

Should see the Malkin goal on commercials soon.

Solid win after a sloppy start. Stay ahead of the Metro peloton.
