    @DK –

    First, you write about the C and Crosby and the team “respond.”

    Recently you wrote about the Malkin/Neal/Kunitz line not producing much in the past two/three weeks (Neal, specifically). Today’s game looks like they/he got your message.

    You sure you don’t have a hand in coaching this team?

  4. JAL says:


    Think that was meant for the Bruins Pens thread.

  5. Naje says:

    yep… sorry… thanks, JAL

  6. JAL says:

    No big deal, just thought you might want to put there too.

    Pirates score 1st but fail to score 2nd run with McCutchen on 3rd with 1 out

  7. JAL says:

    Rays tie score in bottom of 4th, Pirates go back on top in 5th on Alvarez home run.

  8. JAL says:

    rays tied it in bottom of 5th then the runs stopped–now in 9th 2-2

  9. JAL says:

    Fox homer in top of 9th gives Pirates a 3-2 lead

  10. JAL says:

    Rays win with 2 in bottom of 9th
