Speaking of which, I've seen Sprong with two good rushes up the ice and then two good backchecks. What gives?


Sullivan has won two Cups, he's under pressure to win again. He's probably scared to play a younger, riskier player because he thinks it could hurt his chances of winning. If this team had low expectations, Sullivan probably throws him out there a lot more.

I dunno, just a thought because it makes no sense to me either.

Here's the Daniel Sprong summary for this evening:

First shift was 19 seconds at the end of the first PP. Whistle right as the PP ended. 4th line comes on, Rust in Sprong's spot, because I guess Sprong was gassed after 19 seconds.
Sprong's next shift was probably about 8 minutes after his 1st. He was in position, made a nice entry pass up the LW wall that Cullen couldn't chase down.
His 3rd and final shift of the period so the 4th line get zone decent zone time. Sprong skating around the RW circle, slot, and behind the net, stick cocked, just begging for a center who can actually get him the puck.
Times Sprong seen out of position: Zero
Total ice time in period 1: 1:36, lowest on the team


I just rewatched his shifts and was about to post something similar. Thanks and well done.

I wish someone had a project going to track odd-man rushes. I bet Pittsburgh would lead the league, by like twice as many as the next team in 2nd worst place.

It must be infuriating to coach Early-Season Malkin. I know he'll get better (he always does), but uggggggggh stop turning it over, man!

Habs exiting the zone all night with ease. Pens turn it over or ice it.

Sprong will be stapled to the bench now. Watch.

The decision to keep sprong up three years ago has killed his chance at proper development. If he were waiver exempt he’d be working in whatever Sully doesn’t like in wBS. This can’t continue especially with ZAR already NHL ready.

Hilarious shift. Just floating around and avoiding EVERY white sweater.

When a team looks as bad as this defensively, this is on the coaching staff.

They may decide to play sometime this evening and could actually get back in this. It's going to take a lot better effort though.

He made not one, but two bad, blind back hand passes. His only saving grace was, that he came back into the zone and had good defensive coverage and managed to clear the puck after getting knocked down. Riley Sheahan going 1 on 3 into the zone probably wasn't the best play either.

Simon's gotta pass that puck to Brass for an empty netter.

The defensive part is true as well. However, this team scored 7 goals against the SCC last game so, don't be stupid. Murray though flops around like Fleury 2.0 and has the worst glove I've ever seen and continues to show absolutely nothing.

If Phil and Geno are going to play together 5v5, they need to score at 5v5. We know they are going to give up a lot of goals 5v5, but there has to be some kind of pushback.

I see what happened with Dumo and Letang, with the icing. Can't expect the zebras to make the right call though.
