    Firstly, without Holtby in net, Washington is an average team. Their Cup window is rapidly closing. I was listening to radio feed, and the Ole 29er says, pull Guentzel and replace him with Horndog on the PP. Seconds later, HD scores. Borky is a genius.

    Washington does have some fire power.
    Backstrom, Kutzentzov and Oshie are pretty solid guys who can change the game.
    Ovechkin isn't really as huge as factor anymore. On the Caps PP he camps around the left wing spot. Too predictable.

    But I do agree, their window is closing. I think it shut after last season tbh

    I don't know if their window is closing because they have a lot of talent on that team, so they can rattle off a bunch of wins. Both teams play eachother tough, but the Pens have their number. They are very similar how a lot of the team was gutted, the most important pieces remain intact. When the dust settles, we should be meeting them again in the playoffs.

    There is something strangely satisfying about seeing Ovi with the "What does a guy have to do?" look in his eyes.
    Thanks for the SN welfare!

    That was an awesome game - all the Pens playing in front of the net - worthy of a Game 7

    Murray was on, the D came to play...and they had 3 PP goals!

    Glad to see they took Malkin off the # 1PP - he was lazy and sloppy the whole game

    Malkin is always lazy it seems.
    I noticed Sullivan switched around the PP unit.

    After going to the Nashville game and watching the Pens step up their game was icing on the cake they continued in Washington.

    Kunhackle with a redirect behind Niemi.
    Bad luck puck
    Bolts over Pens 1-0

    what a crazy first period! 00:01? Are you kidding me? Can't get any closer than that.

    2-1 Bolts- could be a lot worse.

    Damn!
    Tampa scored with a tenth of a second left in the period.
    Bad news. Kunhackle is possibly hurt blocking a shot.

    Niemi looks better, but he is no where as quick as MAF or Murray.
    Tampa is moving him around.

    Penalties are killing us today.
    Hornqvist had what looked like a goal, got waived off to a kicking motion

    Looks good so far other than that goal with a frigging fraction of a second left..

    That and bad awareness by Letang. I'm guessing he was trying to draw a penalty with the guy still halfway in the box, but he left Niemi to dry right there. Weak 5 hole btw.

    Shining spot. 2nd PP unit looks pretty good.
    Sheary is feeling it today. Break away score and he's getting pucks to guys.
    Rust is looking ok too

    That was a sweet pass and goal. I don't have much faith in Niemi. The Pens need to find a solid backup he sucks.

    Missed opportunities haunted the Pens tonight.
    Guentzel had a nice break away.
    Crosby had 4 quality shots that I counted.

    I'm ok with this one. Onto the Panthers

    Niemi sucks no doubt.
    Jarry needs to be groomed quickly

    Niemi made some nice saves, but let up some iffy ones, as well. Two games and his GAA must be enormous. CHI and TB are two very good teams and were on the road, but that's a lot of goals to give up. He does look slow.

    The Pens did have their chances. Malkin was by himself in front of the net and whiffed on a great opportunity. I couldn't believe he missed that and Guetzy with the breakaway. Was a weak attempt, but oh well, can't get 'em all. Even up to the final buzzer, they competed. Tht's all you can ask for on a B2B, on the road against two heavyweight opponents.

    They put 4 in the net and had plenty of chances for more. That should win you most games. Crosby&Malkin didn't score either...next

    Yeah, considering back to back games. The guys played decent last night.
