For once DB makes the right choice in a call up. And as I type this Maatta scores. Good period so far.

And the Pens follow that up with outstanding defense.

Freeze frame shows a clear off sides.

I know! That's why it's so frustrating to see them play so poorly for 3 weeks. Hope they can keep it up. I obviously don't expect them to play like that every night, I just would like to see consistent solid play.

Dude, just wanted to apologize again - I thought you were being a smart#@#@#@ about me criticizing Malkin. Simple misunderstanding, no hard feelings.

Well...they looked GOOD the last couple of games. It was weird - being at the Anaheim game, even though they were getting outshot really bad in the first period, it never felt like they were getting dominated. There was no impatient buzz going through the crowd or anything, and when I looked at the shots about midway through I was shocked.

The Pens are going to the net constantly. And it's not just one guy on each line - it's EVERYONE, including Sid and Geno. They're working to get the greasy goals, and that makes all the difference. And I love the way they play defense if they decide they want to - they just smothered the Caps last night. Two games into their "brutal" stretch and they're 2-0. It doesn't get any easier with 3 games in 4 nights starting tomorrow night, but I like the way they're playing. Fleury didn't have to do much against the Caps but he held the fort early when the Caps were on the power play (with a little help from the post).

I hope they can keep this up. I got tickets to see them play the Sharks in two weeks.

Great game tonight vs the Isles. Another 3rd period blow up by the Islanders to give the Pens 2 more points.

They did come back from being 3-1 down in the second, so I wouldn't really call that a blowup. A blowup is giving up 3 goals in the last 7 minutes of the game to lose 4-3, like the Pens did the first time they played this year.

This is probably blasphemy, but the Isles have actually passed up the Flyers in one regard - the sheer entertainment value of the games. That was firewagon hockey!

This. Isles played a decent game for the most part.

An awful 2nd period by the Pens sandwiched between 2 decent ones. Wasn't the prettiest of wins, but I'll take it. Sloppiest defensive game since the Rangers loss.

And Malkin scored!

I was gonna make the trip up to the MTL to try to grab some scalped tix, bit decided against it. Not up on paying 2x face value.

Fleury could use a few bus rides. The guy is just crappy.

He's not been at his best tonight by any means, but the Pens have given more turnovers than a bakery at prep time.

Great. Bylsma says Bennett will be out "longer than days". Scab'astini is not a suitable replacement.

Matt Scab'ostini waived. Good move, but I doubt anyone will pick him up, so he'll probably end up at WBS.

More great news on the injury front:

- Beau-nita Bennett out for 8-10 weeks w/ a broken bone in his wrist/hand
- Tanner Glass out 3-4 weeks with a broken hand
- Paul Martin has an unspecified lower body injury and will miss tonight's game vs. Toronto

He was this year's Zach Boychuk.

They called up Connor, Shmegma and Despres. Shmegma should have never been sent down - I like that kid. This could be Despres' last chance to show something before they ship his lazy #@#@#@ out. Or it could be that they play Toronto, Tampa Bay, Florida and the Isles, all teams that are rumored to be looking to make a trade. Could Despres be a "showcase" move?

Maybe. My friend brought up a good point - they might as well trade Despres if they're not going to use him. I've never been hard on this kid because of his laziness, and I percieve him as arrogant. But he's still projected as a top prospect, and I think they could get something for him.

Connor is just doo doo, but Shmegma looked alright when he was with the big club, I think he can become a solid NHL player.

In the light of all these injuries, Sid, Geno, Neal, Kunitz, fleury, are all really going to have to step up. I leave Letang out, because she's shown nothing this season that tells me she's the same player as the last 2 seasons.
