In the big picture, with the guys out of the lineup, on the road, against a good team, particularly a place that has been very unkind to the Pens, I'll take the point, but they left one on the table tonight for sure. To me, first upsetting loss of the season. Hopefully games like this remain an aberration this year and don't become a normal thing like they were at the early part of last season.
agree with all of this.
those fights were nothing short of idiotic. i thought it was hockey 101 that you're not supposed to fight the team that's looking for any way to claw back into the game. and it's common sense 101 that you dont fight a guy twice your size when you're not even a decent fighter to begin with
