Sure, I'll have reports all playoffs long.

Caputi is proving that he can hang at the pro level.

What a comeback, down 4-1 to win it in OT. Should be a huge momentum builder!

Minard seems to be able to score a boat load at the AHL level, what do you think is keeping him from having success in the NHL?

playing time is one of the deterrents. when he gets 0:00 of ice time, it's hard for him to produce. :P

Minard went undrafted and had to work his way up from the CHL to the ECHL to the AHL. Having to go that route and never really being considered a prospect is going to make it tough for a guy to ever even get a shot in the NHL. He's a pretty accomplished AHL player so he can probably make a nice living at that level. It'd probably help him to be in an organization where he might get more of an opportunity in the NHL. I mean, here he got called up and was a fourth liner. He's still signed by the Pens through next season, though.

Good for the Baby Pens. I'm going to try to catch one of their games soon, maybe Game 4 on Wednesday.
