    ++++++++++ Sidney Crosby: I said it when it happened and it needs talked about big time in this thread - Sidney Crosby was the shot of life this team desperately needed. For those of you who did not watch, the Pens came out meh at best in the first period. Jake gets hit up high and Sid noticed the team needed something so he chases down Dubois and fights him. Instant shot of energy in the entire team. From there, they were the Pens we love. Absolute ball of fire through the entire team. I called a 6 spot after the fight and they made it happen AND some. Insane. I cannot speak enough about this because it was perfect timing. It wasn't like a pointless fight. The Pens ended the season miserably last year and started miserably this year. Sid sticks up for a young player when he didn't have to be that guy. It was instant leadership. It was instant energy. It was incredible. If you didn't watch this game, you missed a very cool moment.

    +++ McCann: Geno gets hurt, McCann goes next level shit. Incredible work.

    +++ Gally/Tanev: I thought both guys once again had a good game. Tanev has been the only Penguin to play 6 periods of great hockey. I think Gally was really good in small areas. Good passer. Underrated passer.

    +++ Muzz: Made some key saves in the first. I liked his game overall. I think he's been solid.

    +++ Hornqvist: Screens, tips, awful hockey. The #72 style game.

    +++ Team response: Everyone on the ice from JJ to Letang to Blueger to Jake all picked it up when Sid did his thing. That was a great response.


    ---- Only minus i'll give is the Geno injury. Sid really brought this team together and I wish G was part of it.

    Great game by Pettersson, McCann, Tanev, Sid, Galchenyuk, Blueger and yes Jack Johnson.

    RE the GDT:

    Why are people comparing a literal rookie goalie with so far mediocre euro stats with an 8+mil potential goalie contract??

    I would assume if the Pens replace Murray due to cost, it wouldn't be with a f***ing rookie out of Europe, let alone the NA hockey system.

    I thought it was Kahun's best game. Galchenyuk's too.

    Columbus is even worse than I thought they were going to be.

    After the low of last game, this is a start but I’d feel better seeing us do this to Vasilevskiy and TB than CLB’s backup goalie on a b2b night for them...

    We're gonna look back to that Sid fight as the reason the Pens turned the franchise around again and won 5 more Cups!

    PS, hopefully this game wasn't just because we played a terrible team with a clearly drunk goalie.

    Columbus should have been a win, look how much they lost and their goalie sucks. Winnipeg should be a game we score lots as well with that no D they have.

    His biggest weaknesses were glove side and stick side.

    Take any win you can. Hope Geno is OK. Looked like he got his knee pinned against the boards after he tripped over 58.

    You’ll have to wait until tomorrow as you know, and even then, you’ll get “day to day” and then when he doesn’t return by December you’ll be surprised...
