OFFICIAL GDT -- PENGUINS @ LIGHTNING 11/29

Postby Orlando Penguin on Fri Nov 29, 2013 4:46 pm

Good afternoon, Penguins fans. It's a post-tryptophan matinee in beautiful 70-degree sunshine in Tampa (I know, 'shut up, you stinkin' Floridian). In a game I should be attending, the Penguins take on the Lightning in the first of a back-to-back in the Sunshine State.

We won't be seeing this guy.

This guy has moved on to a bigger enemy.

But this little runt is still there.

Rules of the state of GDT are in effect as well as the 3 knockdown rule and fighters cannot be saved by the bell. Cheer hard, bring whatever that juju stuff is, and don't feed the trolls...whoever they may be.

And now, in honor of Mills Lane...LET'S GET IT ON.

Still no Bortuzzo. Hard to believe he couldn't crack the lineup after how awful they played last game in the first two periods.

I wonder if there are disciplinary issues or whatever with Bort.

With what everyone's been saying about how DB supposedly 'doesn't like' Despres (by keeping him in the minors), maybe Bortuzzo is further down the 'like' meter. Guy's a solid defenseman and doesn't get caught running around. More than what we can say about the high-priced long-haired one.

Not sure what the deal is with Bortuzzo not playing. He was in the top 6 at the start of the year with Letang out. Now Martin and Scuderi are out and he's not in the top 6? Odd. He played well with Maatta. With both top two pairings having a guy injured it would seem to make sense to put the Maatta/Bortuzzo pairing together since they played well. Instead we play with 3 mix/match pairings.

Dude's been really solid outside of that interference penalty, which he cleaned up. He was excellent in WBS and has carried it over.

After his first few games last season he was more than fine. I thought he was better than Engelland, Bortuzzo, and Niskanen by the end of the year.

I've heard of this 'no jersey tucked in' rule but why is it on the books?
