I think we lead the league BY FAR in odd man rushes or breakaways against.

You sit Sprong to show him "how to play" and then there's no accountability anywhere else. So bad

All of the sudden, it feels like this game is in danger of getting away from the Pens, despite them having the better of the play.

Does that really matter? Play like it matters and no one beats this team. Play like garbage then they won’t win no matter who they play.

There’s no easy path in the East. We will get Boston, Tampa, Caps, Flyers or Jackets no matter where we finish and none of those is a gimme.

May have been a good idea to have taken Jake off the ice when he got nailed

They're going to be on the road relatively early in the playoffs anyway.

And then Sid tips it to himself for the goal. This game is a really strange game.

Given that our top pair is on the ice for most of the goals I'm not sure how another defenseman would change much of this dynamic.

Yep Cole instead of Ruhwedel

And an injured Rowley would have meant Jooris centering Reaves and Kuhnhackl

These President Cup contenders sure give us trouble. I, for one, will be thrilled when the schedule lightens up for us.

Keep your hands and sticks to yourselves Pens, the Habs are in full flop mode tonight.

Weird game and entertaining game so far.

Not sure how a third line center is responsible for the failings of the top D pair and the general lack of discipline and effort.

They picked it up a little at the end of the second. I'd like to see a statement period here. Need something to build on for the Devils' game.
