Orpik played great. He really has stepped up his game.

I thought he was the worst Penguin out there. The other 5 were solid though.

No to Sydor...They won, MT won't make any changes probably...

Sydor should get dealt to the Islanders now that Martinek is out 4-6 weeks...

Personally, Letang was the worst Penguin D on the ice last night.

Agreed...Plenty of turnovers in his own zone...

it's hard to get over that baffling icing on the power play.

i just can't say it's his "best" after that. some of his games in the playoffs were probably a little better.

he's been great all year though.

letang's passing accuracy is butt.

his biggest problem is putting passes on people's sticks. i assume this can be fixed, but wow, he kills breakouts.

otherwise, if he finds his comfort zone, he'll be great. his skating and hitting are always there, and his shot is potent if he could ever pull the trigger.

I can see that, however none of his mistakes led to goals that I could see. Scuderi was caught up ice twice for no reason, once on the first goal, the other time on his tripping penalty.

I cringe everytime I see Scuderi and Gill on the ice at the same time. I hope they're split up at some point.

Not to cry about the refs after a Win, but how horrible was the call on Brooks for slashing in the 2nd to hand the Cryers a golden 5-3 opportunity? One of the most phantom slashing calls I've ever seen, and it came after Cooke received 2 min. for a very questionable cross-check IMO where the Philly player dove like a fish. Nice job zebras. Thankfully MAF came up big to kill it and we won the game so its all good in the end.
