    +++++++ 5/6 points without Letang/Dumo/Maatta/Rust. Are you serious? Pretty damn incredible.

    ++++++ Sid/Jake/McCann: What a ****ing game by these guys. McCann constantly enabled Sid/Jake to do their thing. He was constantly backchecking his ass off and playing solid 2 way hockey. Sid/Jake did Sid/Jake things ALL night. Terrific game by those guys. From the drop of the puck to the very end. Terrific.

    + Gudbranson/JJ AGAIN: Same as last night. Nothing but positives to say. JJ has been rock solid. Gudbranson reminds me of Hainsey. Simple/solid. Some minor positioning issues for Gudbranson as he cheats a little strong side and leaves an area weak side pass open, but far from what many of us imagined.

    + Murray: I love the call by Sully to go with the big guy through thick and thin. Murray made key saves and played solid. Well done by #30. We NEEDED to win tonight. Mur was impressive. I ride it out now. Only give Desmith time if needed.



    Once again, I'm not going to harp on negatives. This team desperately needed to win games and get points. They got 5/6. Their attention to detail and playing a 5 man game is impressive. It's not perfect but dammit... they are getting it done.

    Mad at myself for not making the short trip north for this one.

    Murray solid, making up for last night.

    Gudbranson pretty much invisible again. That's a good thing.

    The two worst dmen in the game have, for now, stopped being the worst. It’s been nice.

    Sid anf Jake are awesome and McC was a good addition to them.

    Good bounce back for MM, hope he builds on it.

    Solid effort all around. Still lots of warts and cringe worthy moments and the Habs were helping like it was 2017 all over again, but good win.

    team ran out of gas against Philly and Buffalo, if Dumo/Letang were healthy, I'm guessing there would have been 0 butt clenching this week.

    Tip of the cap to Murr. You responded kid.

    If not for Kucherov, Sid is an easy Hart pick IMO.

    Best all around player in the game by a mile.

    Credit where credit is due. Murray was lights out. On a B2B too. Very demanding for a goalie.

    Sully was the star of the game.

    Decides to start Murray who plays fantastic.

    Moves Mccann up to Sid's line which worked great.

    Great job by Sully and the Pens.

    I think we're in wild card 1 currently since we have a game in hand on Montreal.

    Really want to make the playoffs to see what McCann can do for us...even Bjugstad. The secondary scoring we didnt have last year. Think it would be a huge factor.

    Need to hear about Rust too...tho Blueger may make up for some of that. Just get him and Cullen away from Wilson. Add a damn scorer for that line. Bluegs and Cullen are solid defensively we dont need him. Honestly should have kept Pearson...hes another guy who can score timely goals in the playoffs
