If the team defense can continue this play when Malkin comes back and we can make some improvements on our depth forwards no one beats us 4 out of 7.

Well played game by Pittsburgh, a lot of 1-2-2 in this, defensive, not a lot of energy exerted, pretty low tempo game...I enjoyed it. Well goaltended by Marc-Andre Fleury...Crosby is just terrific again...Letang-Despres was a good pairing tonight...well officiated too, even though some of our resident whine factories might not agree...well done overall.

Since we can't complain about Fleury...I'm guessing a "trade Orpik" thread comes out of this game because his stick broke and Kunitz couldn't stay with a man...

Actually play Vokoun next game.We need MAF the next day vs. the Bruins.


I'd argue the Rangers game is more important.

Caps came from behind 2-0 vs. the 'Canes and won 3-2. I'm surprised at that result.

Pretty irrelevant but shouldn't Sid get the second assist on the game winning goal? He deflected the cross crease pass that Kunitz picked up.

Vokoun has also started both games vs Rangers this year, so yeah, we're seeing him Saturday.

Disagree. The Pens were not outplayed. They played a great road game against a desperate and talented team.

The refs were terrible too, allowing the big Leaf D to use their hands with impunity.


Agree on the officiating. I just sensed the leafs seemed much more dangerous offensively than the pens. Pens did a good job at getting a stick on a pass but the pens seemed to have fewer good scoring chances and seemed less potent than the leafs.

With that being the case, the Pens amazingly have the most ROW in the league. One thing I'll really give them credit for this year is that they're earning their points. Not cheaping into them by losing in OT or going to a bunch of shootouts.

He never technically gained possession of the puck for the Pens. The puck was officially turned over when Kunitz got it.

I could be completely wrong, though.

They should give Duper a raise and a three year contract......One thing about Orpik is when he's in the box he is not on the ice.

Oh God, the refs were good tonight...except that we should have gotten two less power plays probably...

According to some, there has never been a well officiated game in NHL history. Give it a rest...for crying out ****...

He is very composed and silky smooth with the puck. Oh and he realizes he is big and strong when he needs to use his body.

Toss Up

PK was better tonight because they were more aggressive OR because Orpik was in the box for 3 of those PKs?

I'm not one to dump on Orpik, but I think it's a legit question.
