  1. Pens and moms need to bring home another one tonight. If they handled LAK with ease the other night, they need to pounce on the Coyotes tonight.

    I look for a big game from Sid. He has not been scoring a lot of goals lately. I say he gets 2 and 2 tonight in front of Gretzky.

  2. Good evening everyone. Well I see Jerome Bettis was shut out again. Boo.

  3. Nice to see the regulars here tonight.
    I win “dork of the day” award for forgetting about this game………
    And, as I switch it on, Phoenix gets a goal.


  4. That’s what I get for trying to finish up my laundry. Grrr!

  5. Sid needs a RW.

  6. I hope something clicks in the 2nd. sheesh

  7. Amazing Duke – Syracuse game tonight. ‘Cuse wiping by 2 in OT.

  8. Looks like the Pens have found a hot opposing goalie.

  9. Thursday night, Pens crush a Stanley Cup contender, the LAK.

    Tonight, the Pens getting outplayed by a middling (at best) Phoenix squad.


  10. Good evening all. Go Pens!

  11. Hey Brandecita good to see you tonight. I see the Pens brought their D game (and I don’t mean defense).

  12. Bodacious, Hippo, and Jandstar,

    Nit sure why it is one step forward, two steps back for this team when the identity is clearly responsible defensive play and balanced offensives possessions. Frustrating as heck!

  13. Well let’s see how many Penguins they can cram in the penalty box.

    • Well, at least this isn’t the last game of the playoffs.
      Pens will be back on Monday….. hopefully they will be awake for the game.
      Ottawa always plays the Pens tough……. and dirty.

      Everyone enjoy the Super Rodent Day tomorrow……

      • We play Ottawa Monday…and they just got spanked by Toronto 6-3, Kessel with a hat trick. he moved up to 4th in the scoring race. All I can say is, we better be hungrier.

  14. Pens are not a championship caliber team. We’ve heard it before; good in the regular season, poor in the playoffs. They have too many weaknesses to make a championship run. Not enough scoring on the 3rd and 4th lines and a lack of team discipline. Goaltending is shaky at best. If you don’t agree, you don’t know hockey.
