Puck Drunk Love:
Poor Brandon Sutter. The Pittsburgh forward has been compared to his father, Brent, throughout his young NHL career. Will Brandon be as good as Brent? Which will have more points in the NHL when all is said and done? Brent hoisted the Cup twice, will Brandon? You get the idea.
Unfortunately for Brandon, these comparisons never stop - even when he was named the Player of the Game by his team's own network, ROOT Sports Pittsburgh. Brandon led the Penguins to a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins, scoring two critical goals in the third period. You'd think the network that airs most Penguins games would know which Sutter plays for the Penguins. Apparently not.
Thanks to JP Quayle for sending this gem to us.

The injury suffered by Pittsburgh Penguins star Evgeni Malkin on Saturday night will likely keep him out for one or two weeks. The good news is that it isn't related to any sort of concussion issues, according to the team.

from Joe Starkey of the Pittsburgh Triibune-Review,
At some point late in the Penguins' thrilling victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday, it struck me: Ray Shero is the best trader in the NHL.
What's more, he is the best trader in Penguins history — better than Craig Patrick.
Even before Brandon Sutter's dramatic game-winner, a quick glance at the Penguins...
