He's gonna get paid. 30 goals last year, will get more chances without Parise.


Clarkson another one of those guys who didn't even make the NHL until he was 24. Didn't develop into full beast until last year.

Agree with the general thought of how you play a 2-on-1 as I coach hockey, and yeah, that's the correct play. However, Bortuzzo just gave up a lot of space by backing up and being indecisive. Typical rookie/youth mistake and Engelland shares a lot of blame there, but Bortuzzo allowed the 2-on-1 to happen by not stepping up and giving up too much ice too soon, imo.

Awful lot of complaining in here. NJ had 4 shots that period. They got a break and capitalized on it, but if the play continues to go the way it did in the first the Penguins will win.

Gee, why doesn't Malkin have as many shots? It probably has nothing to do with him playing the left side of the ice on the PP instead of where he scores the majority of his goals, the right side. I guess there is some great insight that only HCDB has which would cause him to put him in a location where he doesn't score from.

Geno will tie it on the PP. Then Zaychuk makes it 2-1 shortly after. Yes, that is what will happen. Make it so.

I agree, but it's just Moose we have to worry about. The guy has been sharp in his starts this year and tonight he looks no different.

I wasn't in love with how either d-man played the goal at first glance. Engo doesn't backcheck on the correct side, he attacks the shooter's backhand side and tries to reach around him instead of pressuring on the forehand side to force him to his backhand. Bortuzzo doesn't realize that Engo is a slug and thinks he's going to get that support, but Engo just wasn't fast enough to get back on Clarkson (who isn't that good of a skater) and become impactful in the play. I think if Bort has that over again and realizes the limitations of his partner, he tightens the gap a little bit. But he thinks he's going to get more support there I think...

You have a good point. Bortuzzo needed to have less gap so he could put a stick on the shot.

The Pens outplayed the Devils and Engel got caught pinching - big-time shot be Clarkson. The Pens play two more periods like that and I like our chances.

So much concern here and nit-picking on individual players/plays. We'll be fine if we maintain composure and stay the course.
