Johnson/Schultz is not a good pair.

Seems like anyone with Johnson isn’t good. Kind of like Daley, on his own he looked fine but some reason drags his partner down.

I just don't get the coaching staff's love of Simon.

I think we are going to see a common denominator there this year. Just a hunch.

So we are 2-1 with wins over both teams in the Cup Finals. That kinds erases the sting of last Saturday's game.

I don't walk away from this game with a lot of confidence. The Pens had better goaltending and a lot more luck than the previous games. There were still way too many turnovers and too little offensive zone pressure.

But ... 4 points in 3 games, and plenty of time to get some things straightened out.

Riikola looked very good. Who's more expendable, Maata or Schultz??

Johnson


Not going to happen even though it would be the right move.

Questions are who plays better with Johnson and who fetches a better return relative to their value.

Neither answer I fear is clear cut.

I think the more interesting story will be will Matta continue to be the one who rides press box while Riikola is in? You can't take the guy out at this point.

Also with us playing Montreal next (again) I think you let DeSmith get the start and let him ride until he loses one.

For me the Pens were never known to have a legit D core, we've always been offensively driven. My more concerning issue is could DeSmith take away the starting job from Murray. On the initial thought you would think that idea is nuts but I'm not so sure it's not possible.

One last observation, does Crosby look I don't know...old? lost? He just doesn't seem to have that fire like he used to.

Two points- keeping pace and getting the lead out.
I've missed the glove save Image
Sid must like giving youngsters some hope with the scoring race. :shock: :o
I thought Phil had a hat trick v the canucks 2 years ago, but this was his 1st.
Maatta is good, you don't trade Maatta in October.

A much less expensive alternative.

"Nice pass, Geno", perhaps?
