  3. Bennet w Neal and Geno…

  4. They obviously don’t have barbers in Bloomington, Minnesota.

  5. Someone wake me for the shootout.

  6. Jandy must be drag racing or pulling an engine or something tonight. Too busy to watch and blog.

  7. Kinda disappointed the Panthers got the first goal after all that dominating play by the Pens

  8. Their G is solid…

  9. Beau Bennett & Andy Toole could be brothers.

  10. well, end of the second, the Pens worked their butts off, with not much to show for it so far

  11. and just where is Bowser????

  12. TK riding pine….

    DK: Deservedly.

  13. Ah TK back just in time to get nabbed for a slash….that should please the coaches.

  14. Good Lord watching this PK is hard to do.

  15. It’s kinda weird to see a player skating without a helmet. Shades of Craig MacTavish.

  16. That’s gonna hurt in the morning.

  17. I don’t think the blue unis are ugly, but the Pens shouldn’t wear them. Florida’s unis are fugly.

    Hope Geno is OK

  18. Friggin Kopecky

  19. For Sarah-

    How long’s this Bennett stiff going to keep getting a free ride ? I think Harvey Bennett scored more often than this guy. What a California pretty boy. Get your nose dirty surfer dude

    That oughta take care of it..

  20. Yikes Milo you jinxed Markstrom!! He simply whiffed on that shot! Just….whiffed.

    Keep up the good work!

  21. 1st career point for Bennett. You’re welcome.

  22. Hope Geno OK. That could easily be a concussion.

  23. Pens really grinding the forechecking. Good stuff.

  24. love the way Niskie is playing

  25. They took Bennett’s assist away. But then again, he could get it back in 3 or 4 days.

  26. My man Fleury is having quite the game.

  27. dang the more I see that fall malkin took the more i dont like it

  28. and hey, plug Dustin Jeffrey in he scores a goal…go figure

  29. Any word on Malkin?
    Looked awfull nasty to me.
    Hope he is OK.

  30. Bylsma says Malkin is being evaluated this evening & they’ll know more tomorrow. I wish he wasn’t so specific.

  31. We had em all the way

  32. Any word on whether Malkin has a concussion?

    Just saw the replay on espn.com, looked like he hit that head hard…..
