    As I said, Maatta was credited with the goal, but us not having to suffer through OT was all on Geno. He was hooked and held all shift. Multiple times by every player. Made that goal happen.

    Maatta redeeming himself from that horrendous giveaway on the second goal. Thanks Geno

    Maybe go with.

    Sheary-Crosby-Hornqvist
    Simon-Malkin-Rust
    Hagelin-Guentzel-Kessel
    Rowney-Sheahan-Archibald


    Fire Hunwick and Cole into the sun.

    Flyers and Canes won. Loss would’ve put the Pens in last in the metro... with games in hand too I believe.

    Stupid and lazy team remains stupid and lazy. Nice ending for Maatta at least and Murray’s breakdown is postponed a bit.

    that was all Geno even though there would be no indication of it in terms of points and goals. his game from the point they tied it was on a different level
    I think he is the one that I see the most passionate. for some reason, when he gets pissed off or scored on, his game just elevates leaps and bounds

    Pro: They won a game in which they outplayed the other team, which hasn't been true for a lot of this year.
    Con: They barely beat the worst team in hockey.

    I'm not sure he was pissed as much as he just wanted to get the **** out of there.

    Not funny. I deserve to see some games of Sprong as a Pen this season as a reward.

    I do know that sitting Reaves and Splitting up Cole and Hunwick makes us a bit better.

    Less awful would be the more appropriate description.

    OK, old fashioned +/- version to stop my drunk self from getting pissed

    + Rust/Horny - this will always be true until proven otherwise
    + Kessel - he really drove play today, was a lot more commanding on the ice
    + Maatta - still think hes miscast, he should be used as a more offensive player than what he is
    + Remembering that we could still be listening to Steigy
    + Sheahan - doesnt do much in the offensive end, but thought he had a solid game

    = Simon - good offensive skills, but really stands around a lot. When he doesnt have the puck or its not a transition I would see him just kind of standing there not doing anything. Rookie stuff, but noticable

    - our entire D corps outside of Maatta. Cole with his dumb penalties, Hunwick looks like garbage, Ruh and Dumo are just there, and enough said about letang
    - Reaves - not that he played poorly, he just doesnt play. We cant really spread the time out if someone is playing 4-5 minutes a night
    - Sully - stop juggling lines. there are some combos that work, so stick with them a bit and see how things ride out

    JR would love to exist in that movie/movies/book. Most of the Pens would die, though.
