  1. Here is hoping Scuderi’s post-game speech sinks in!

    • Sounds like he made his speech to Yohe, not to the team behind closed doors. Hope there was some players-only discussion also.

  2. Am I still in the minority in thinking the Pens are a better team with the younger defensemen playing disciplined team defense sans Letang?

    Moving Letang for a top-3 forward to fill in dupuis’ spot has to be at least given some consideration, no?

  3. Will be interesting to see how the team rebounds tonight . . . and who is in the line-up.

    Please, no Engelland.

  4. Do we get the NHL Penguins tonight, or the Wheeling team like last night?

    Let’s Go REAL Pens!

    Oh, cut Adams. Please……..

  5. I missed the lineups watching the NFL game…..is Engelland in tonight?

  6. Regardless

    Pens are still doing pretty good

    But agreed, you don’t raise the Stanley in January

    That reminded me of a picture I have somewhere of Mike Lange and the Cup in the back of a school bus after they won the first Cup.

  7. Decent first period with the good guys up 1-0. I want to see responsible substitutions / line shifts by the Disco Kid. I also want to see responsible defends and no ill advised passes or Adams doing anything for the rest of this contest.

    That is all.

  8. Jandy must be stackin’ Z’s. Getting ready for church in the morn. ;)

  9. It seems as if Rod Scuderi’s speech sank in last night since the Pens did beat the Flames 2-1, and, hopefully, such will continue when the Pens face the Capitols at home on Wednesday night.

  10. You figured that Pitt would likely beat Wake Forest yesterday since Virginia had just beaten Wake Forest before that by 23 points, although Virginia also beat NC State easily enough yesterday as well.

  11. As for Arod, well, he definitely won’t go down without a fight, and, naturally, it’ll be a fight to the bitter end, and so…

  12. As for Arod, well, the Yankees will likely release him, and then, he’ll likely attempt a comeback with the Tampa Bay Rays, or so those in the know predict anyhow. And, naturally, he’ll continue to be in denial.
