First time in a long time there is not a player or coach on the cover of ice time. Just the city today.

Started this game like it is game one of the playoffs, not an October game.

Can’t blame Murray for those goals, but geez.

Johnson and Ruhwedel -2 each so far.

If this game continues at this pace, this could be an 8-7 game.

First goal was a slow line change, but you can probably pin that second one on the defensive team.

And honestly neither are to blame with Murray on the goals. Kessel never picked up the first goal and Cullen didn’t on the second.

Sid cheats and uses the forehand.

That’s a pretty weak hold. If that’s the standard then we should have about 20 PP tonight.

He scored so many backhands the goalies were begging for a forehand just to break the monotony.

Pretty impressive hold by Johnson. Guy went down like a rag doll on the one handed hold.

Anyone know where I can find that pregame video tribute? My old man missed it and wants to see it.

No fault on the 1st goal for sure. I'd put it 50/50 on Johnson/Ruhwedel on the 2nd. Both defenseman are waiting in a position for Sheahan to have options on an outlet pass. Problem is, Sheahan lost the puck battle. One of the defenseman should have been covering the front of the net, but instead, they both went into outlet pass mode knowing full well there was a guy wide open in front. Can't do that.

Impressed with the play of Simon and Sprong so far this game. Simon tonight looks like the hockey player everyone on the team was talking up all training camp. He looks really good with Sid and is producing.

I have a feeling the game that Sprong sat out, someone talked to him about his confidence and playing his game within the Penguins system. I have made mention a few times that if you look at his highlights in the AHL last season and what he has done in the NHL this season, you see a much different player, lacking complete confidence in his game. He's been a different player the last two games. His positioning still isn't the best, but it too, has looked better this game compared to last game.

Oleksiak did everything wrong there a defenseman can do to not play the open man and not stop the pass to him.

Sloppy line change didn't help either.

Nothing better than dominating a game and being down 4-2 on like 8 shots.
