Recchi got the only good shot of that PP. [/i]

How great is this?

It's almost hard to believe the Pens have such talent ... again.

Can't say I disagree. At no point did they ever even look to be interested in shooting. Can't say I'm a big fan of Recchi and Whitney on the points at the same time.

Whitney is great on the rush, but terrible at the point on the PP. Recchi will get blamed for all of that, but Whitney was just piss-poor on that.

Still, good 2nd half of the PP. Perhaps Crosby could've taken the shot but it was a great pass to Recchi.

Apparantly LA has a PK streak. Lets end it ;)

Man! Crosby is close to getting another assist here.

Another PP now! Good job drawing the penatly by Malkin.

Btw, did Armstrong get an assist by hitting or did he touch the puck? =)

The Pens PP units are not dealing very well with the aggressiveness of the Kings PK, especially when trying to gain the offensive zone.

Ummm... Jagr and Lemieux?


So true, but how amazing is it that we get to witness two pairs this good within 10 years.

It really seems like he wants to stay here for good.

Does anyone have that link that someone posted where you can watch the game online from the center ice broadcast?

Good road period, good recovery for allowing a goal 25 seconds in

This look reals good. They have pressure 5 on 5 and the PK is brilliant. PP ok too altough they didn't get many shots on.

I really enjoy Mark Eaton.

Also, Colby Armstrong looks sharp tonight.

Max Talbot and Chris Thorburn are doing well together. Changing momentum with big shifts.


Therriens cycling system is currently working to a T. Penguins have the Kings pretty confused.

His break-out passes are some of the nest 've seen on the Pens in a long time but I agree, he just doesn't look like he is confident on the point. At the end of last year he looked good but at that point it didn't matter if he gave up a breakaway. Now it does.

This team seems like they can only beat themselves. They are just clicking and the young talent is doing better than anyone should have reasonably expected. Malkin and Staal are the real deal and it will be fun to watch them for the next few years.

The goal only came because Colby got his stick kicked away by a King to make it 3-2 in the zone. Colby's forechecking has been masterful tonight.

Sid and Geno are the best 2 players in the league when they share the ice.

Is it just me, or does Staal look faster tonight?

It's just you. :P

Kidding, kidding.

Staal definitely has some hop tonight.

Ekman is skating well too. I'm becoming a bigger fan of his wrister everytime he lets one go. Very deceptive release and a variety of speeds.

Look for the Kings to get their "makeup" powerplays here in the 2nd period. That seems to be the way NHL hockey works. Our PP needs to slooowwww it down a bit and stop rushing. Take those shots from the point. We're making LA's PK look great out there b/c we're not shooting.Good looking game though thus far. 4th line has been real solid too. We could easily be up 2 or 3 goals right now.

Therrian likes it too. He has him playing high on the off wing during the PP so he can let it rip.

Come on those were ok PP's. Stop rushing? I think they were almost too patient searching for the perfect pass =) At first I was also annoyed by the low amount of shots but Sid's patient usually results in a real good scoring chance.

They had alot of trouble getting out of their own end on one of them but great pressure lead to more and more bad penalties. I think they looked great, but more shots and more bodies in front is never ever a bad idea.
