  1. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Brent gives Carolina the lead, 1-0, mid-first

  2. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Pens yet to capitalize on chances.

    End of 1st

  3. Poz says:

    Crosby out with undisclosed injury!!!! What a joke of a graphic. It’s an embarrassment to put it up.

  4. Poz says:

    Kicked in??? I hope not.

  5. Poz says:

    Nope. Should be a good goal.

  6. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Neal swipes at a rebound= bounces off of a defenseman’s rear end to tie game 1-1


  7. Poz says:

    Not only does Kunitz miss two opportunities to score, he clubbed Despres in the head with his stick.

  8. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Despres takes a high stick… from Kunitz. He’s OK…

  9. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    … or maybe not. Headed to locker room for some needle and thread.

  10. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Carolina’s Spacek injured by shot. He’s hurting…

  11. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Pens on PP

  12. Poz says:

    next penalty will be on the Pens.

  13. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Depres returns with 28 seconds remaining in 2nd period, which then ends


  14. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Shots on goal 37-10 Pens thru 2.

  15. CWalton_67 says:

    Can’t believe the shots on goal figures–Pens have been fairly dominant. Peters keeping Canes in the game.

  16. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    LaRose 2 minutes for tripping. Pens on PP early third period

  17. scapper says:

    Call me Mr. Psychic, but here comes a Hurricane power play or two. You know this league operates.

  18. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Sullivan from outside the circle for the lead! 2-1 Pens

  19. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Dupuis scores on odd man break. 3-1 Pens

  20. Eric Bowser says:

    Impressive performance by Penguins but I wonder, at what point does Carolina GM Jim Rutherford get the pink slip and Ron Francis takes the reigns. The Canes have a horrid collection of defensemen, though I like the appointment of Kirk Muller as head coach. He’s going to need some time to change the system and culture in Raleigh.

    Go Pens!

  21. Poz says:

    So much for me thinking the Pens were going to be called for a penalty before the Pens went on their 3rd PP.

  22. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Jordan Staal 4-1 Pens

  23. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Carolina needs to get this rivalry thing going, being in the same conference as the Pens next year. No spirit.

  24. Poz says:

    Watching the past few games, I find myself thinking “What if Crobsy and Letang were playing?”

  25. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Conversely I think ‘what if Paul Martin was playing…’

  26. Poz says:

    Knew that was coming…

  27. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Canes on power play for the first time tonight. Picard for hooking…

  28. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Dupuis stoned on a breakaway

  29. Eric Bowser says:

    @Poz – Yeah, many teams are left wondering about “what if” as so many good players are out with concussions. The NHL is doing very little to address the problems with fighting, terrible helmet standards, hard caps on shoulder/elbow pads, etc.

    The game is so much faster than 10 years ago, players are bigger, stronger, and more athletic. The NHLPA has to act, it can’t wait for more players to get hurt.

  30. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Ruutu scores after a turnover to make it 4-2 Pens

  31. Eric Bowser says:

    and Ruutu helps my fantasy hockey team and by early February, he’ll be helping the Penguins.

  32. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Canes on PP with 2:48 left. Neal for slashing, which he didnt do…

  33. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    52-18 shots on goal in favor of Pens.

    Neal 21st goal, assist.

    Pens now 4-0 without… Paul Martin

  34. Dave G in Mason, OH says:

    Tampa defeats the Flyers 5-1, scoring 5 goals on 16 shots.
