  1. A great match-up, but my focus is on whether Crosby will play again. And it’s a frustrating endeavor considering how information flows in the NHL.

  2. Neal had it – missed the goal.

  3. I don’t recall, in past years, this many too many men calls on the Pens…

  4. Orpik makes the play that results in the goal!

  5. Great shot by Malkin

    1-0 Pens start of 2nd.

  6. It is amaing Dave, how skilled they are, that Malkin could fit that shot in.

  7. Neal is as strong as an ox.

  8. How did that stay out?

  9. Great save by Howard on Malkin during PP

  10. I cannot believe the graphic said “Crosby out undisclosed injury.”

  11. Great game. Pens flawless at half-way point. Great containment vrs. the Wings.

  12. Game is flying by. Few whistles, lots of action both ways.

  13. Spendid so far, but Pens can’t have any break downs. That save on Malkin was key.

  14. There is the turnover.

  15. Datsyuk buries a giveaway to tie the game.

  16. Big test in the 3rd for the Pens. They played as well as they could, and it’s tied. Pens need to continue playing disciplined hockey against this team…

  17. Third period promises to be fun… looks like a nail-biter to the finish…

  18. That “undisclosed injury” thing. It’s why you can never take them seriously when it comes to injuries, because they refuse to tell the truth.

    The key to this game is how do the top 4 defensemen hold up in the 3rd period. Despres & Picard have only played about 7 minutes while the top 4 have logged 15 minutes. Niskanen had played 16:20 thru 2 periods.

  19. Milo, that you have ice time down to minutes is a tribute to you. Magnificent coverage. I watch by feel. I feel now that the great save when the Pens were on the PP and that post by Malkin spell doom. I dearly hope I’m wrong.

  20. Franzen makes quick work of PP opportunity. 2-1 Wings.

  21. And now the Pens on the PP… 14 minutes to go.

  22. Difference I’ve seen so far on the PP. RW hit the net. Pens are missing. And what a save by Fleury.

  23. Fluery AMAZING save

  24. Fleury sorry

  25. If they put the Mcuggets commerical on one more time I’m turning the TV off.

  26. Pens on PP down one with 7 minutes left in 3rd

  27. That power play costs them games. Like this one, for instance.

  28. It appears this isn’t interactive chat, but the occasonal post for anyone logged on and not watching or listening. Don’t know what happened since last year, but I’m leaving. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  29. Cleary scores for Wings. 3-1, just over 4 minutes to go in 3rd

  30. Last thought. Maybe Pens come back in last four minutes. But today, I saw a better team. And without Crosby, it isn’t the Pens.

  31. Empty netter for Cleary. Wings win 4-1

  32. Pens sputtered on power play as has been so often.

  33. Years from now, when we look back and wonder why this rendition of Pens did not win the expected multiple Stanley Cups, the answer will be inability to figure out how to score on a power play. Utterly inexcusable with the talent they have.

    DK: Well, either that or we’ll point to a mind-bending, devastating run of injuries to some of the league’s most talented players.
