Picture not from today, natch
Stat line of the day: 23:58 played, 1 goal to go along with 5 shots on goal (plus two more blocked and one that missed the net), 2 hits and 6 takeaways....
Take a bow, Ryan Malone.
Back to back afternoon games in separate cities are perhaps the toughest challenge for a professional hockey player, especially coming off a crushing loss from a rival in such a heated contest. The Pens did what it took today and got the 2 points.
Next up, a rare breather for a day before a dreaded Florida trip to take on Tampa and Miami. It's been announced that Sidney Crosby WILL make the trip, although he hasn't committed to playing in either game. But no doubt a good sign.
Reinforcements like Crosby and Marian Hossa for a team that's already at the top of the Eastern Conference ledger? What a time to be alive.
