#TribHKY Sunday links: Pens-Flyers stars and other assorted postgame stuff.


Good Sunday morning to you, dear readers.

This old machine has crashed often since Team Trib arrived in New York, so probably best to keep this short and direct.

Marc-Andre Fleury passed Tom Barrasso on the Penguins’ all-time wins list, and this victory also helped him rediscover his mojo. Game Report:

And now, something new this season, the #TribHKY stars:

These are not subjective.

1 – Paul Martin, Penguins

Statement game in a big way for Martin, who was Devilish with his skating and stick-on-puck work.

2 – Tanner Glass

Noticeable every shift, which is not something man fourth liners can say in their first game with a new team.

3 – Evgeni Malkin

That, folks, was a signal that half of a season in Russia did the MVP good.

And, now, some linkage:

= Columnist Dejan Kovacevic asks, “Where did that come from?” —

= Beat scribe Josh Yohe on a penalty kill reborn:

= Notes n’at, leading off with Martin’s promising start:

= The #TribHKY Sunday column on Dan Bylsma’s stroke:

= Jonathan Bombulie’s AHL Penguins report:

Also, reasons to BUY THE PAPER:

Josh’s “PuckSpeak” with Max Talbot of the Flyers … College Hockey stuff … the soon to be anticipated #TribHKY Sunday Showcase.

An AM skate awaits…
