I dunno, this Pens team can play and win those low scoring games if they want to. We can grind this out in 5 if we get back to our game and get some smart coaching.

At least we add a defenseman that will skate the puck through open ice instead of standing still and firing 50 foot passes that clearly were not working.

I really thought we'd see TK today, I'm surprised. Maybe Bylsma came to his senses and realized that he benched a player Bennett) that could really help us last game and is going to give him a serious chance today.



He rolled 9 players in a tie/trailing game. I'd rather have Jussi out as number 9 than Bennett.


He cut Bennett's ice time from the start of the game, lead or no lead. 3 minutes in the first, 3 in the seconds, and 53 seconds in the third.

In his Long Island pressrer yesterday HCDB mentioned his reasoning in not playing BB more was to get bettr faceoff men out there.

Not sure that I agree with him, but that's what he said.

Blowout didn't work so well last time. I'd settle for a nice, solid 3-1.

They're as confident a fan fase as the Pens fan base was before game two... That's a good sign.


I'm just hoping there is no overconfidence with our players.

So by "noon" the NHL means 12:30. Would have been nice to know.

Billy Joel is a legend on Long Island.

"From a town known as Oyster Bay, Long Island
Rode a boy with a six-pack in his hand
And his daring life of crime
Made him a legend in his time
East and west of the Rio Grande"

Billy Joel has a "retired number" banner hanging from the rafters, along with those of Islander greats, to commemorate his many sold-out Coliseum shows.


It's gotten to the point I turn the radio station everytime a BJ song comes on.

Interesting. I'm pretty sure we did well on the dot, so it showed, however this kid is dangerous down low and proven to be responsible defensively. Seeing him out there in the final minute after playing a total of EIGHT seconds in the third period was mind boggling.
