  1. Still looking for some lunatics to join our fantasy league

  2. Bennett on 3rd line

  3. Glad to see the team finally playing like they should. Crosby goal was Crosby being Crosby. Great heads up pass from Niskanen on JJ goal. Sweet no look pass from The Piece to Malkin on Adam’s tip in goal.

    Also, liking how Bortuzzo looks out there.

    Top two lines are sick.

  4. Anyone else liking the Geno-Jussi-Neal combo? Bennett is the long term answer, but that combo appears to have some very good chemistry.

      • And of course KCD looks great….but would not mind BB up there and Duper on 3rd line. Good as KCD is in regular season, they seem to get shut down too easily in playoffs as teams focus on Crosby. DUnno. Doubt DB will try that but I can dream.

    • I like it. I feel bad for Bennett, too. The kid has it all, skill, instinct, hustle. His day will come. Meantime, he can keep on playing well and honing his skills. And if Jussi falters, he can step in.

  5. Happy 34th birthday Chris Kunitz!

  6. Great article on playing left/right wing.
    Bennett quoted … and it’s a good read :)
