    Bennett on 3rd line

  3. Iceman says:

    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. CWalton_67 says:

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

  5. Sarah says:

    I like it.

  6. Sarah says:

    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.

  7. Jandy says:

    Happy 34th birthday Chris Kunitz!

  8. Jandy says:

    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.

  9. Jim S. says:

    Seems like he turns 34 every year. Some guys get stuck in time for me. I wish I was one of those guys, and could have stayed 34 awhile longer.

  10. Jandy says:

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

  11. Jandy says:

    Kunitz has amazed with his staying power for the game he plays. I sure hope he can sustain it this season.
