  1. LETS GO PENS !!

    Didnt miss much in that 1st period.
    Need to crack the scireboard!

  2. - Pens Jets trade rumors flying around concerning Kane, Ladd or Wheeler.

    - Maatta untouchable but Wheeler always plays well vs Pens, he would be a great pick up.

    - not understanding Shero sending Harry Z down. Speed, grit, draws penalties, #12, Gibbons, Not as good, Adams, Sill, Conner not much better lately. Adams really been a big even strength negative. They can do better. Jussi has also played to why the Canes dealt him.

    DK: I’ve had talks in recent days with people in Winnipeg, and this — including Gary’s fine column — is a case of 2 + 2 might equal 4. Gary sets it up exactly that way. And, as Gary writes, it really doesn’t appear there’s much of a match because the Jets would need top-six in return. The Penguins, of course, don’t have a forward to give.

  3. The Devils are just a pain in the rear team to the Pens.
    2-0 bad guys.

  4. Jeez! I didn’t even know we played this afternoon. Sucky afternoon time. ugh. And I turn it on to find us losing 2-1. C’mon Neal, scire!

  5. Uncle Daddy seems to be on his game. Let’s hope one of our boys beats him soon.

  6. Power Play…maybe we can score….Kunitz?

  7. What a boring game. But it sure is the blueprint for how to beat us.
    Fortunately they don’t call all that holding and obstruction in the playoffs.

    Oh, wait….

  8. At least the Pens are still leading their division at 29-12-1, and they won’t be playing New Jersey again unless the Devils make it to the playoffs, and the Pens finished at 3-1 against them this season. Meanwhile, the basketball Panthers beat Albany today 58-46 and Lamar Patterson scored 1000 points although Albany is indeed another soft non conference opponent. I wish you all a Happy New Year!
