    ++++++ What a team game. That was 2017 level of team defense. Slight bend, no breaking, and all 5 guys on the ice supporting one another defensively. Absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful team game tonight. Best of the season for sure.

    ++++ Murray: Once again just makes a few key saves, buys the Pens time, and the Pens reward him with goals. It felt like a team full of unselfish players all playing together. Mur picks 'em up, Pens make the scoreboard light up.

    ++++ Kris Polamalu Letang: Best season for Letang so far in his career and it has nothing to do with his points. His 5 on 5 play is out of this world. He's up and down the ice. He's defending 2 guys at once. He's taking down 3 on 2s with ease. Insane.

    ++++++ Everyone. **** giving anyone a minus because nobody deserved to be a minus. I could rave about the entire team. That was an excellent team effort from Simon, G, Pets, JJ, Maatta, etc. You name it, they brought it.

    Murray's now up to a .913 save% on the year, fun fact.

    That's about as close to flawless as you can get, against a pretty good team to boot. I'm hyped.

    Kessel with 14 minutes and I do know 40 seconds of that was in garbage time. Sully is really preserving his minutes in these types of games and I likey. Keep that man fresh. I don't care how bad 81 hates it.

    I thought that was one of the best games of the year for Maatta.

    Terrific job all the way around on both ends of the ice against a very good Jets team.

    Keep it rolling on Sunday. Time to break the dry spell against the Hawks.

    That was a beautiful, no care in the world, boring January win for the Pens.

    I mean that in as glowing and positive a way as I possibly can.
